Michael Yapko (2009) works with a volunteer, a medical student, who feels “frozen” to advance professionally. Fearing public speaking and feeling blocked in writing she wants to feel centered and motivated. Yapko uses hypnosis –what he calls, “the original positive psychology”— to free her from feeling stuck and to help her take risks to move forward.
