About Self Help Audio: Books, CDs, DVDs, MP3s...
"Listen to my voice... I shall say this only once!!"...
Seriously, self help not only comes in books from stores like Amazon and websites like SelfHelpCollective.com - it also comes as MP3, CD, DVD and even on tape! But then you probably knew that!
In some cases the self-help message has simply been converted from one medium (e.g. books) to another (e.g. audiobooks). Other times, though, self help CDs or DVDs are created specifically for that medium (e.g. hypnosis downloads as mp3s, or brainwave entrainment as CDs or...)
- Anyway, this page is only an introduction
to such audio. On it, you'll find some general audio categories listed,
some example self help stores to purchase the audio from, as well as some thoughts about subliminal self help from Dave Sprooth and myself.

Self Help Audio
What I say...
Well the first thing I'm going to say about this is that I have limited experience of self help CDs and the like.
Yes, I have listened to some self hypnosis from HypnosisDownloads.com and found them to be most helpful, and do intend to use more soon, and I've experimented with subliminal audio of one form or another.
But, generally, I prefer my self help to be read. What I do know, though, is that self help audio is very popular online, and the self-help changes that can result can be powerful indeed.
Broadly speaking, such audio can be grouped thus:
- Self help audio books
- Self help DVDs
- Self help
(See the recommended resources link at the bottom for relevant websites or products/services.)
Many famous self-help books can be found on the above medium. But generally, you'll find specific products aimed at solving a particular self-help problem; e.g. self confidence, weight loss, stress, insomnia, fear of success, divorce etc.
And, as you'll see below, you can also get subliminal audio - i.e. audio where you don't actually know what you're listening to. And that can be difficult to determine whether or not the product is working. (In fact Quackwatch(TM) doesn't believe in much of what it calls 'questionable self help products'.)
I am very much no expert here, so I welcome your experiences if you have any - thanks.
Now it's time for Dave Asprooth to whisper quietly into your ear about what to look for in subliminal audio...
