Hypnosis Induction Scripts
There are numerous ways of 'inducing' a trance state in a client. They can be permissive ("I wonder if you would like to notice how...") or authoritarian ("You can feel your arms relaxing...") - these are also known as direct and indirect methods of induction.
Which method you use will depend on your own preference - many therapists feel uncomfortable using a direct induction whilst others will use nothing else. The hypnotic subject's expectations will probably also determine which method you use. Some people expect to be hypnotized instantly and you may find a long, drawn out progressive relaxation script will create resistance in your subject.
Included are a few variations, please practice using different methods so that you have the right one at hand for when you need it.
