This is the second edition of this highly respected introduction to Medical Neuro-linguistic Programming, which remains the official handbook for the Society for Medical NLP and was both a critical and a commercial success in its first edition. Based on the work of Dr Richard Bandler, who has again contributed the Foreword, Medical NLP has developed to become a discipline in its own right, guided by Garner Thomson. Revised and updated throughout, significant new sections have been added on: priming; breathing; heart rate; sleep; relationships and cancer; and lifestyle diseases. This is a key resource for all health practitioners who want to understand and improve the effects of what they communicate, consciously and unconsciously, to their patients/clients.
