"What if it really is...?" by Mary Ratcliffe

A compelling, easily understandable, down-to-earth and often humorous look at the subconscious mind from a different and refreshingly positive angle.

Written in a light-hearted style that sheds a clear light on powerful new ideas and theories by an ingenious use of amusing analogies and interesting anecdotes from every-day life.

It speaks clearly and effortlessly, no hint of jargon, to anyone who has an enquiring mind, maybe an interest in becoming a therapist, and certainly a wish to become healthier and happier.

Looking at the subject from an unusual perspective and seeing a whole new and bright horizon emerging.


Available from Amazon and major booksellers, recommended price - paperback £9.99, eBook £5.99

Some reviews for "What if it really is...?"

This book provides an accessible introduction to people wishing to find out more about LCH® but is also an essential read for practitioners that builds on the work of the founder of Curative Hypnotherapy, David Lesser, and his two original texts.  The simplicity of the writing style belies the complexity of the issues discussed.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says, ‘A single conversation with a wise person is worth a month’s study of books’. This book gives you three things – wisdom, good conversation and a good read.
Farrukh Akhtar – Senior Lecturer in Social Work, Kingston University

WHAT IF IT REALLY IS...? is a great introduction and explanation of the fascinating world of LCH® and the possibly even more fascinating world of our subconscious mind.
Whether you are seeking treatment,  considering embarking on a career in LCH®, already involved with Hypnotherapy, or simply interested in the potential power of your own subconscious  this book is invaluable… an absolute ‘must have’….
Jo Baldwin - Hypnotherapist

I thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.  It makes a difficult subject accessible, the format made it palatable and your big finish (your personal story) was an amazing testament.
It satisfied me on two levels a) as a potential therapist b) as a potential patient and it was enough to make me feel hooked.

Is there an unconscious mind that controls much of what we do, not always in ways that we like? Why do we do what we do and can we take control and change it?  These have been burning and unanswered questions for many of us. With powerful use of illustration and metaphor, the author provides the most convincing evidence yet that a part of our mind is in control of our behaviour and that we can access that part and change what we do.  Using every day events, this book is full of examples that you will recognise in yourself.  Compelling, thought provoking and full of insight. This book will resonate with your soul.
