Books on The Hill – An Evening with Nikki Vallance (Local Author)
Books On The Hill, Holywell Hill, St Albans, UK

18:30 to 20:00 Thu Jan 30th

‘Will you Make me Eat an Onion?’ – Can fiction bust the myths of hypnotherapy?

Nikki Vallance, local author of Pivotal, will be joined by Hypnotherapists Wendy Henrys and Saleema Davies to explore answers to the questions below relating to hypnotherapy and its representation in fiction.

Pivotal is a relationship mystery which explores the impact of a life-changing dilemma on four lives. When a mysterious bequest throws the lives of four women into chaos they seek support from hypnotherapist, Dr Kath O’Hannon. Through a process of self-discovery, their new-found knowledge weighs heavily, as they unpick four decades of life choices and are forced to make bold decisions about the next stage of their journeys.

How can fictional hypnotherapists like Dr Kath in Pivotal help bust the myths and preconceptions people may have before considering hypnotherapy?

How important is authenticity in representing wellbeing professionals in fiction vs creating an entertaining story and how well does Pivotal succeed in balancing the two?

What contribution can books and reading in general, both fiction and non-fiction, make to the reader’s mental wellbeing?
