The Hypnotic Strategies Underlying Ericksonian Hypnosis


  • Capture conscious attention
  • Disable critical factor which may lead to resistance
  • Influence subconscious process in the absence of conscious critical thought

Within these categories, you can employ various techniques to induce and deepen the trance, and covertly influence the subconscious mind.

You can capture your client’s attention by asking questions, telling a fascinating story, making a statement that provokes and instant reaction, and a variety of other measures.

Storytelling is probably the most powerful hypnosis technique for influence. The story needs to have a character the client identifies with, a problem that maps the client’s problem, and a solution the client recognizes as their own.

The story must contain symbolism that is inherent to the client, and must be told in a language that maps the way the client thinks.

Within this framework, we employ powerful language patterns, confusion inducing techniques, and multiple other strategic and moves, such as timeline switches.
