The Willmarth Hypnosis Interviews

Dr. Eric Willmarth has “interviewed over 100 of the greatest living hypnosis researchers and clinicians and tried to preserve their wisdom and their personality for future students of hypnosis. All of the interviews were candid and unrehearsed. Answers to my questions are “off the top of their heads” and not the result of prepared statements. With each interview you can sense the passion shared by the impressive individuals who study and use clinical hypnosis.”
