Mixed Methods induction for hypnotherapy
The Hypnosis Spark Induction is a specialized induction design for use in clinical hypnotherapy. This kind of induction introduces elements of the visualization metaphor that are later used in the main therapy session.
In this induction the client is asked to imagine a spark of light and lets that spark lead them down a corridor that takes them deeper and deeper. In the corridor the spark then becomes the main element that leads to the place where the client will make the emotional changes they need.
The induction is multilayered and uses Kinesthetic suggestion, visual suggestions, auditory suggestions and metaphor imagery to put the listener into trance.
