I can tell you how to heal yourself with hypnosis - New Scientist interview, 9 March 2016
"We all hypnotise ourselves everyday but we don't always get it right, says Laurence Sugarman, who believes it can take healthcare to a new level"
“My colleagues and I propose that hypnosis is simply a skill set for influencing people. It involves facial expression, language, body movement, tone of voice, intensity, metaphor, understanding how people interpret and represent things.”
"Hypnosis is a medium for delivering placebo effects .... My definition of placebo is the use of conditioning, expectation, social relationships and narrative paradigm to change a person’s physiology in a way that they attribute to an external intervention."
"I may offend lots of people by saying that mindfulness meditation is an example of hypnosis"
