What videos would be useful?

Thanks, folks. That's all really useful.

I think I'll start with Leisure, then maybe fractionation or fake. And we'll take it from there.

John/Roy, I'll drop you an email. There's no point me putting out material that you could do much better.

Cheers.

Translating Hypnotic Language

Just think about how you can talk about having headlice and the person you're talking to starts to scratch their head.

If you can do that, you can use hypnotic language conversationally.

Another obvious example would be discussing a memory in such a way that someone starts to relive it.

Hi folks,

I'm thinking of producing some short videos to demonstrate some of the inductions on howtodoinductions.com. Which do you think would be most useful?

I'm thinking that there are plenty of Bandler, 8-word and Elman videos out there, but any others that you think would be worthwhile?

Translating Hypnotic Language

I find it's possible. However, the key seems to be BEING hypnotic, rather than sounding NLPy.

So, "And I wonder just how easily..." is out. But good rapport followed by a tale about my nan's chiropodist is in.

It's easier in the clinic, even when it's conversational, as people expect some weird.

Online addiction treatment ?

Have you considered directing them to Stanton Peele's online treatment program?

New Induction (Floating Candle)
Dave_I:
I think of the See/Hear/Feel bit as an outline, while the actual vocalization is the experience. But yes, making it interactive, and noticing what you see, where it is, the colors, making it vivid, the sounds, where they are coming from, the volume, tone, what you feel, where you feel it, where it moves to or it you can enhance it, make it more real, etc., etc. Not to mention eliciting and using their own words and experience. The difference to me between those two is pretty profound, and I find it is a great way to not just tell them, but to experience it right along with them.

Most of the time, I use something like, "Just notice whatever you notice..." and then provide some possible examples. Given timing issues, I might ask them to tell me what they are noticing. Otherwise, I like to keep it fairly open-ended.
Dave_I: It seems clever and inviting.

Well, that's my nickname! ;)

New Induction (Floating Candle)
Simon Tebbenham:
1: Client to hold the candle (extra catalepsy - and a little bit spiritual, some people may join the the neural dots to weird and spooky phenomena already held in their memory banks - I sort of picture Derren Brown doing something like this in a dark spook room!)

Very nice, Simon. Given the speed with which hallucination is achieved, I don't doubt that this would be effective.
Simon Tebbenham:2: see, hear, feel bit - since I saw Overdurf having a go at that phrase, I tend to want to avoid it now - so more interaction possibilities with feedback. Also, I'd wager for many, olfactory counts too with a candle for an extra sensory dimension

I'll check out Overdurf. Unfortunately, it has become something of a bad habit for me. Evenso, when it works, it is great terminology. Yet, when it is used 'on' someone who has heard it before, it just sounds awful.
I agree on the other interactive possibilities. However, this was initially an impromptu induction and I was caught off-guard by how quickly the client was responding.
Re: olfactory - excellent! With candles that is just spot-on. Cheers.
Simon Tebbenham:3: I really liked the 'You may not have noticed bit' - defo gonna use that in all sorts of inductions from now, I like that, it's cheeky. Sometimes I get stale and too focussed/repeaty - nice switch Thanks for sharing.   

Cheers - and you're welcome.

New Induction (Floating Candle)
Dave_I:
Nice induction.If you will allow a bit of a tangent...it occurred to me that this kind of works like (or maybe in fact, is) a leverage induction.

I think that is exactly right, Dave.
Dave_I:Anyway, being as this a very visual-based induction, I am wondering if this might be particularly useful either in capitalizing on the strength of visual types, or in priming the pump for doing visual phenomena.

In this case - and this is a transcript of an actual induction, rather than a script - I had already decided to do an eye-fixation. Then in the few minutes before I got started, it became obvious that the client was very visual. As you see, they achieved a visual hallucination in seconds. My takeaway from that is how many more people could do that given the chance?
Dave_I:Short version, I like it. Especially the permissive nature that invites them to add motion, and the different senses. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers. It is always important to me to go with whatever the client brings. And the imagery involved her seemed to provide plenty of opportunities.
