In dealing with clients, we must secure their cooperation and trust to make certain that they respond as well as they can. Without their full cooperation, therapeutic results are delayed, distorted or even prevented. Once you have created an atmosphere of trust, confidence and an expectation of success, you can stimulate the client into action using his natural sources of motivation as the trigger.
The hypnotic state creates a rapport which can be used to enhance the subject’s response. As the subject develops trust and confidence in the hypnotist, increased responsiveness develops. Increased response to the ideas presented by the hypnotist is most desirable because it is what enables the hypnotist to guide the subject’s use of memories and unused capacities in ways that create the hypnotic experiences desired.
