Free Hypnotherapy Script – Ericksonian Confusion Technique
Here is an example of an hypnotherapy script. This particular script would be most effectively used for a client who is more intellectual or analytical. The reason for this is to disengage the client’s analysis, and help them to gear more of their attention towards their experience. Milton Erickson (the founder of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy) used confusion techniques quite frequently.
In my experience, confusion is very effective when used at the right time. In this particular script, the therapist is confusing the patterns of breathing with a visualization of ocean waves. The timing is very important for this script, watching the client’s breath and talking about it as it occurs, but using a vocabulary relating to the ocean.
“So allowing now a time to think, wonder, and feel…it might make you curious to be here and now in a place like this, as you sit just where you are listening carefully and closely to the words and phrases that vibrate from my voice.
Sometimes I might say something that gives you a feeling, other times it may help you to understand in a deep and relaxing way, and other times still it might make you wonder what do I really mean by all the things that I am saying, and that’s okay, as a trance is something easy, and simple, but genuinely comfortable…
I encourage you to breath, breath deeply and comfortably and feel the expansion of your consciousness and let it slow, and expand and slow again, and while you continue to expand and slow yourself down in a relaxing way you might want to begin to launch in your imagination to a time when you were near the ocean waves, and as you imagine the waves expanding to the shore, and slowing as they return to the sea, you can remember the soft sand between your toes, as the waves expand to the surface, and the sea smelling breeze is such a wonder, as the waves again and again move deeply inside the vast ocean surface, the waves continue to expand and return slowly and easily moving inside the ocean’s self, as it is sooo easy, and sooo natural for things to change and flow…
the water really can allow each wave to move deeper into the ocean, as the changes on the surface are telling a story of peace, calm, and relaxing changes. Smelling that thick flowing air as the waves expand, and continue to slowly enter the calm and deep ocean, each wave expands only to wonder what its like to let go, now… as the ocean takes itself on a journey into the waters of the mind and soul.”
