Clients tend to pick and run with an idea or suggestion that matches their unique lives and needs. If we talk all of the time, then they have no time for processing these new ideas. Generally, novice therapists and hypnotherapists talk too much! It is important to put many pauses in what you are saying so that the client can explore and expand upon particular nuggets that they are hearing.
In addition to "pauses," in the audio presentation below Rubin discusses poetry and passion and their relation to pyschotherapy. This was a much loved and much enjoyed presentation from one of our past conferences on Ericksonian approaches. We hope you enjoy it!
