3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
One of my more disappointing purchases of late was PSYCHOLOGY FOR DUMMIES - I could have done a better job myself! No mention of either Frankl or Jung's theories, just a load of other theories that don't add up to anything useful or practical. I'm getting the impression that mainstream psychologists in general are up their own arse. I've had a fair number of clients who've been down the psychotherapy route who got frustrated that all their counsellors did was listen and ask questions.
I am convinced that if you want to help people with issues, you've actually got to give them an experience (hypnosis in my case) a model they can understand and use (conscious/subconscious mind) and something to DO (practical techniques and exercises) not just sit there nodding your head and asking dumb questions. I'd pit my results against a mainstream psychotherapist any day!
With missus back to work and Son on sleepover, I at last have the chance to get some stuff done! A very busy day is in prospect with a shitload of housework and two client sessions to prepare, deliver and follow up. Thanks to the Swish Technique I can now get on with it with a clear head.

Alfred Hitchcock, the “master of suspense,” was obsessed with blondes and cast only blondes in his movies.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Life is a struggle, and ultimate victory is only decided in its final chapter. That is why it's important not to become intoxicated by one's success or become disheartened in defeat.
