Richard Nongard and I join forces today to share four language patterns that hypnotists should eliminate from their vocabulary. We discuss the various phrases that become a bad habit in your hypnosis and why you should avoid using filler and permissive phrases. We reveals why suggestions that are unrealistic and too bold are problematic and how suggestions of incremental success will result in a more consistent outcome. We also discuss tonality’s role in hypnotic suggestions and debunk the myth that the deepest level of trance is the best state for hypnosis work.
