Dr Brian Roet was in general practice in Melbourne, Australia, for fifteen years before he came to England in 1980. During this time, he noticed a great deficiency in his ability to treat the high proportion of patients visiting him for emotionally related illnesses.
Using techniques such as self-hypnosis and creative visualization, he spent years in his London practice learning about the ability of the mind to create or resolve disease. He believes strongly in the need to educate people about the role played in their minds in their emotional or physical ill health.
In the course of his work he has written two books - Hypnosis - A Gateway to Better Health and All in the Mind? - Think Yourself Better. This is his third book.

"To live a healthy and enriched life, our past emtotional wounds-like bodily infections-must be cleansed and allowed to heal. Source Completion Therapy is designed to do just that." Dr. Bleck, Chapter 1
Incorporating all the effective, significant psychological theories widely in use today, SCT takes us on a journey of personal exploration and emotional healing built on the theory that we can only break free of the disabling effects of our hurts if we (first) become fully aware of their true origins, (next) re-experience the trauma, and (finally) complete the healing process by confronting the source of the pain.
The text is completed by an easy-to-use self-hypnosis script designed to bring on the state of relaxation necessary for reliving and re-experiencing the events that created our symptoms. Options for giving the pain back to its source (completing) are also offered.
The book provides a comprehensive review of the basic literature on cognition and emotion – it describes the historical background and philosophy of emotion, reviews the main theories of normal emotions and emotional disorders, and the research on the five basic emotions of fear, anger, sadness, anger, disgust and happiness. The authors provide a unique integration of two areas which are often treated separately: the main theories of normal emotions rarely address the issue of disordered emotions, and theories of emotional disorders (e.g. depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and phobias) rarely discuss normal emotions. The book draws these separate strands together, introducing a theoretical framework that can be applied to both normal and disordered emotions.
Cognition and Emotionprovides both an advanced textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in addition to a novel approach with a range of implications for clinical practice for work with the emotional disorders.
