  1. 1. 6 Core Hypnotic Therapeutic Techniques Main Message Examples of How These Messages May Be Conveyed 1 Help is available • I have seen this type of problem before and, with just a little help, the person recovered nicely. • People suffer most when they suffer in isolation. But this time, you do not have to face the problem alone. • Call me anytime you have trouble. 2 Change is imminent • Are you ready for this change? • Once we do _____ , you will no longer have problems with ________ . • Before we change anything in therapy, we should determine if any of the negative behaviors serve a positive function. • I do not think the symptoms will disappear entirely yet, but you should carefully observe any decrease that occurs because it will be important for me to know about. 3 The resources you need are inside you • Tell me about a time, in the past, when you were not bothered by the problem. • After a lifetime of learning, there are going to be some valuable insights, gained from similar situations, which apply to this problem. • Have you asked your wise inner guide? 4 Change can be effortless • You do not need to consciously remember our discussions in therapy. • Your progress will go more smoothly if you allow it to happen without trying to force it. 5 Progress is evident • I am sorry that the therapy has not removed all the symptoms. • You are talking and acting different (during therapy). Can you feel it? 6 Reality has changed • After you learn how to overcome ________ , that problem will never again be able to get the same hold on you. • Based on the progress we've seen, I believe that you no longer have the disorder.
