Every so often, I share books that you might find helpful, whether it’s to read alongside your EICH Hypnotherapy studies, or if it’s for personal development. I’ll start with a few of my old favourites that I read many years ago and that I go back to from time to time. Click on the book image or title to find out more.
Candace Pert - Molecules of Emotion - was recommended to me by an old friend/hairdresser of mine and my Mum’s, Lucinda Ellery. It’s a beautifully written book about how we feel the way we feel, and offers insight into the workings of the human body and mind.
A book I found absolutely wonderful is It’s the Thought That Counts, by Dr David Hamilton. This was so easy to read, which is important for me as I can get easily get lost if I lose interest! Dr Hamilton writes about evidence of the power of mind over matter.
The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield was a book I read in my twenties and it changed the way I think. The Book Depository says ‘You have never read a book like this before...The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it tells you how to make connections between the events happening in your own life right now...and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come.’
I am a huge fan of Khaled Hosseini. I read A Thousand Splendid Suns while on a Mediterranean cruise in 2011. ‘Love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.’
