An Introduction to Environmental Stress-Targeted Therapy
A Therapist’s Guide to Treating Bipolar Disorder with Hypnosis
By Meera Duncan
About the Book:
A new and effective psychotherapeutic treatment for persons affected by Bipolar I and Bipolar II Disorder is now available for therapists to put into practice. Clinical Hypnotherapist Meera Duncan has developed Environmental Stress Targeted Therapy (EVSTT) in response to her research, which shows that environmental stress is an additional component to causation of Bipolar Disorder. EVSTT utilizes hypnosis and has been proven to be highly successful with patients with this disorder.
Through the use of hypnotherapy, EVSTT targets and desensitizes the triggers and associations linked to manic, hypomanic, and depressive episodes. This treatment protocol reduces the severity of each subsequent episode, increases the maintenance phase between episodes, and shortens the duration of each subsequent episode.
Therapists and clients will achieve optimum success by following the five stages of treatment that incorporate a fluid combination of additional psychotherapeutic methods :
- Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- EVSTT Hypnosis for Triggers and Associations
- EVSTT Hypnosis for Trauma, Family Focused Therapy, Relapse Prevention Plan
This book is the first of its kind to focus on environmental stress as a new theory of causation, and highlights the safety and effectiveness of hypnosis and hypnotherapy on treating clients with Bipolar Disorder. Therapists and clients alike will be encouraged by the success of this treatment protocol that offers new hope to clients with this disorder to live happier healthier lives. Whether you are a therapist, a friend, family member, or a person affected by this disorder; this new research and treatment protocol is a must read!
What other therapists are saying about Meera’s book
I found this book INVALUABLE...
"As a Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist with bipolar clients I found this book INVALUABLE... Great protocol and easy to read. The author herself is inspiring with her own story of how she came to start in the field and the information provided is really brilliant. There is nothing else out there on Bipolar Disorder and Hypnosis - this is the first and definitely worth being on any Clinical Hypnotherapist's shelf. Actually - any Doctor or Psychologist's shelf too! Well done to the Author and BUY IT if you are a Therapist. "

An outstanding, educational, helpful, useful and inspiring book
Meera Duncan, Clinical Hypnotherapist, really knocked this one out of the park. This book is SO well researched. I think any health professional would benefit from reading that research and about her approach for treating Bipolar Disorder - and other mental health disorders. There are many insights to be had here.
Her treatment plan includes several modalities and I think that is not only wise, it is essential. I just love what Meera Duncan has so eloquently presented here.
Not only all that, but Meera shares some of her traumatic history and how she was healed.
A fascinating and liberating book, I highly recommend it.

Inner Child Healings from Traumas and Addictions
Meera you did a great job with this book [A Therapist's Guide to Treating Bipolar Disorder with Hypnosis] . As a clinical psychologist I apply these steps in treating inner child traumas and addictions. Walking back on the sand of times is bang on. I have applied these strategies in my own inner child work. These strategies have helped me and my patients in engaging our adult selves to start and continue the re-parenting process of the little girl / boy within. Thank you Meera!!
