More important, they teach you how to apply these methods to whatever you want to focus on and change. You can create the results you want quickly and permanently. This book should be required reading for everyone who wants to make a radical change for the best in their lives.

Alan is a very caring guy. Knows his stuff. He will be a good fit if you are looking to consult with someone who can really help you with your change work.  Susan Fox, CHT

Donald Pelles, Hypnotherapist, Silver Springs, MD. 
"I would put the “Finding the Zone Exercise” of Michael Ellner and Alan Barsky’s QUANTUM FOCUSING in the same category. You ask the person to “close you eyes and defocus your mind,” then “take yourself INSIDE your body and OCCUPY all that space, all those places, all at the same time.” Then “Holding onto that feeling, start saying to yourself, in your mind, ‘I live with a happy heart, a peaceful mind, and a playful spirit,’ over and over again.”
You get a nice trance in 30 to 60 seconds, really a combination of self-hypnosis and meditation. I teach this to all of my clients, and ask them to start doing it for two minutes at a time, three or more times a day. And I find that as they do this, they change, sometimes in unexpected ways."


• "Wow! Where has this been all my life? I love it!"

Bill Henderson, Santa Monica, CA​

"Loved the book and am living the process. My life improves every hour of every day since I started." Ronnie Blair, San Francisco, CA​

“I saw Alan in person at Hypnotherapy Marin, and followed along in the IBS book. At first I was skeptical having had I.B.S. for over four years, suffering immensely. I had tried everything from bowel cleansing, diet changes, new exercise regimes, vitamin supplements, and meditation. I took two baths a day to help the tension I felt. After four or five sessions, my attitude changed and the I.B.S. slowly disappeared. It has been a couple months since our first visit and nowadays I rarely have any relapses. Thank you! You've given me a new lease on life.

Bria Habin, San Francisco, CA​

• "Found Quantum Focusing to be very powerful. I use its principles every day."
