chose to study psychology for her own survival.
Like many other leading lights in todays science and art, Susie Rotch
is the child of Holocaust survivors. Susie was drawn to psychology and self-responsibility
to cope with intimate experience of what is politely termed the failure
of civilization. We are all subtly drawn towards what we most need -
to find a balance, to seek peace or to find an understanding about who we
The business of self discovery.
Somewhat overshadowed by the constant technological advances in everyday life,
the topic of understanding the world and ourselves is an ever-increasing,
worldwide inquiry that was just about nonexistent 50 years ago. And while
we can only work at understanding the ways of the world Susie believes we
can take steps to positively change our attitudes and reactions to that world.
Breaking chains that were never there.
We voluntarily or involuntarily construct our view of the world and our place
in that world. The role of psychology is to help reveal the choices we have
made and then the choices we can make to better enjoy our lives. Psychotherapy
is not a medical treatment handed out and controlled by strangers. It is a
very personal, self-controlled, existential process that aims to change for
the better our understanding of ourselves and the world.
The Living Skills Library is a distillation of Susie's 3 decades of
practical psychotherapy experience into a series of professional self-education
and universal self-hypnosis courses.

which make available to the general public a guided path to self exploration
and voluntary behavior change. While both 'Leadership' and the HypnoBooks
address different issues they are both driven by Susie's desire to teach the
processes of self empowerment - an experience missing from her own early life.
The inspiration of the Self Help Cinema HypnoBooks:
or an astounding leap forward into the blindingly obvious.
Hypnosis has been successfully used therapeutically for many years as has
self-hypnosis. This less common behaviour-changing technique requires some
self knowledge and the ability to focus attention. Movies have become a universal
means of inducing very narrowly focussed attention. So why not combine the
two? Susie did just that with the Self Help Cinema Hypnobook series.
The HypnoBooks. Each HypnoBook title has its
own 60 minute DVD that integrates Susie's commentary with enthralling multilayered
images gently flowing with natural rhythms. The spoken word and the screen
images synchronize with a slow natural heartbeat, a picture and sound combination
that produces a very powerful, calming effect to help unlock the power of
