Tutorial: Writing a Hypnosis Script - Outline

 < How to Hypnotize Directory

The previous section described how I designed an original Nail Biting hypnosis script for a client. On the telephone he told me we wanted to deal with a Nail Biting problem. He also hinted at other issues but these were unspecified.

Block outline for a hypnosis script

Before he arrived I blocked out a script outline for the nail biting script, this defines the sections to be covered, each aimed at one particular aspect of the problem. (These are shown below in boxes).

Hypnosis Script Block Outline

 

The outline above is a general purpose solution to a generic problem. Once I actually met the client I explored how he experienced his problem and I made a note of any resources he had and any beliefs he expressed about his problem. I then used the script outline as the basis for the therapy, talking to the client without reading anything, but following the outline structure and adding specific wordings to match the client's particular experience and resources.

 

Read the transcript of the session

The session was recorded and transcribed for teaching purposes. The whole script is listed in step 5, with comments explaining what each section and each sentence is doing.
