Neil French's book called 'Successful Hypnotherapy' is available from this site as a download and is also published in Spanish as "Hipnoterapia Eficaz"

 The concept of Hypno-analysis as he created it in the late nineteen seventies has been taught to thousands throughout Europe and the world.

Neil French was influenced strongly by the writings of Sigmund Freud but became convinced that Freud had missed the very 'Alchemist's Stone' he was searching for by abandoning his use of hypnosis. According to Neil; "Freud had never truly appreciated that a person in hypnosis can converse quite freely with the hypnotist".  Freud himself, "doubted his own efficacy as a hypnotist". 

The version of Hypno-analysis that Neil French produced has stood the test of time and has been instrumental in helping many multi-thousands of people achieve psychological growth and relief from distressing symptoms. 

This interpretation of hypno-analysis that Neil French created was and still is unique. It is fair to say that his discovery that 'free association' within the 'state' of hypnosis would lead the person to a cathartic release from 'repressed' or concealed trauma was totally revolutionary. Nobody before him had realised this. 

The vast majority of the renowned practitioners; Emil Coue, Franz Anton Mesmer or more recently Milton H Erickson, Dave Elman, Gil Boyne, Paul McKenna, et al. had been and in many cases still are, relying on directed regression if indeed they used or use  regression techniques at all. The vast majority being content with the use of Hypnotic Suggestion or NLP techniques. 

Neil French discovered, possibly/probably even invented  the concept of hypno-analysis. Certainly created the concept of free association within hypnosis. He asserted that the vast majority of 'instant' hypnosis therapies offering relief from symptoms in just one session are really only 'suggestion therapy couched in analytical terms'. Further investigation of such therapies reveal the results to be short lived.

 The doctrine of "cause and effect" is absolute. Find and investigate the original cause and the effect will be resolved.
