Pausing in Hypnosis

The act of pausing while speaking is highly vital to a hypnotist. It can make a subject … anticipate ... each and every ... word.

Here is a list of occasions when you will want to use pausing:

  1. When you wish to maintain a subject in anticipation of your words.
  2. When you want to make a point of a certain word or phrase.
  3. When you're utilizing punctuation ambiguity.

Get a tape recorder and record yourself practicing scripts. Listen to how you use pausing during a hypnosis session. See if there are ways to improve your pausing techniques.
