Conversational Postulate in Hypnosis

At this months NLP & Hypnosis Practice Group, The Trance Cafe the topic of exploration was the Milton Model. Specifically the use and understanding of the Conversational Postulate.

First we inquired into the meanings of the terms. Postulate means a assumption of some reality. But a Conversational Postulate is basically a question form where irrespective of the verbal answer will tend to invoke some kind of action in reality; be this a physical one and/or operating withing cognitive capacity.

Conversational Postulate Hypnosis Newcastle

The verbal answer is most commonly a YES/NO or less commonly I DON’T KNOW or MAYBE. The importance is what happens in actuality, an action or thought that is the subtle or indirect response that is usually inferred by the recipient of the Conversational Postulate question.

For instance:

  • Could you tell me the way to the station?
  • Won’t you sit down?
  • Might it be a good idea to talk about it?
  • Can I ask you to stand up please?
  • Will you show me that again?
  • Is there any more toilet paper?
  • Should you wait before ordering that book?

The basic form will take a MODAL OPERATOR such as Could, Can, Will, Might followed by a personal or group referential index such as YOU or YOUSE’ALL and then a request ( question ) which can be acted upon either physically or psychologically.

So a basic set up for an induction into trance could be:

Could you sit down please? … And can you take two or three deep breaths? … And might you relax your shoulders a little more? … And will you close your eyes momentarily or in just a little while?

So we now have the structure of :

[ C.P. ] [ Suggestion ]

eg [ Could you ] [ Sit Down ]

Following on from this we can use what I call a Conversational Softener or just a Softener that is spoken before the Conversation Postulate [ C.P. ]. For instance:

I wonder … Could you Sit Down? or OK Robert, Could you Sit Down?

Where a Softener is of the form : I wonder, OK Robert,  I’m wondering, Now etc.

If you are ready … Could you sit down please? … And Robert … can you take two or three deep breaths? … And now … might you relax your shoulders a little more? … And I’m wondering will you close your eyes momentarily or in just a little while?

[ Softener ] [ C.P. ] [ Suggestion ]

One of the most useful ( and indeed a social nicety ) words is please. There is one video I saw online of Erickson working with a client who would not at first close their eyes. Erickson used the work ‘please’ several times to affect this. Usually clients are not resistful or not wanting to co-operate so the use of ‘please’ has several uses.

The word ‘please’ in this developing structure can be used in a variety of places. It was found during the practice group that excessive use of ‘please’ felt somewhat unnatural. I leave you to explore this in your own ways. ‘Please’ will fit in any one ( or more ) of the structure sequence marker shown after the ‘Please’ modified ‘induction’ below.

If you are ready … Please could you sit down ? … And Robert … can you Please take two or three deep breaths? … And now … might you relax your shoulders a little more Please? … And I’m wondering will you Please close your eyes momentarily or in just a little while?

[ Softener ] [ -Please- ] [ C.P. ] [ -Please- ] [ Suggestion ] [ -Please- ]

You may have noticed that the last structure phrase in this basic induction is a double bind. The Conversation Postulate may be actualised immediately, or momentarily or in a little while as per the verbal question. So extending the ‘Suggestion’ part of the mini-structure, yes that can be a double ( or single bind ) bind.

[ Softener ] [ C.P. ] [ Please ] [ Suggestion ( Bind Form) ]

Now, as with all structures ( or process ) I wonder, can you thoroughly learn this with plenty of effortful practice or enhanced repetition and then please consciously forget them?

Negation and Negative Effect Postulates

I will leave this post with a little taster of what followed on from this exploration at the practice group; as in putting into a alternative mode of practice within the presented structure.

Assuming your practice partner is sitting down and their name is Mary.

Ok Mary … I see that you are not standing up … Please … I don’t know … can’t you stand up? … and go deeper into trance?

Or assuming Mary has her eyes open.

Mary … I notice your eyes are open … I don’t know … can you not close your eyes? … while you develop more of an altered state?

Clueless about English language and scraping grade ‘c’ made it more easy to become a hypnotic language expert.

Learning English language, spelling and something called ‘grammar’ at school never actually made much sense to me. I was hopeless at spelling and didn’t care that I was hopeless at spelling. I never saw the point of getting all excited or angry ( as some of my teachers did ) that my spelling wasn’t so good.

I really didn’t know what nouns, adjective or verbs were until those terms were used on a training course I was attending in 2002. So I asked for clarification of those terms. I saw some people stare in surprise that a 30 year old was asking about basic English.

Even if you don’t know the what terms like verb, pronoun or cleft sentence actually are you are using them every day in normal conversations or you are reading about them even now.

The secret is inside the structure of how to talk hypnotically. What the real secret really is you already, as a speaker of English, know how to do this.

There are a set of common every day words that form the ‘glue’ in the same way that glial cells form the glue that makes the neurons in our brains work the way they do functionally. Using these cards you will very rapidly and experientially learn how to construct, use and maximise you hypnotic language skills.

Conscious Unconscious in Hypnotherapy – Nigel Hetherington

When I am working as the Newcastle Hypnotherapist or in delivering NLP and Hypnotherapy training I often use the terms conscious and unconscious. Neither of these terms refers to any tangible objects; they are both after all just concepts. How these terms are framed or explained will tend to induce very different meanings and so, very different potential effects.

Conscious can simply mean that which we are aware of in any given moment or experience. Unconscious can mean all and everything that that we are not currently aware of and is currently unknown or permanently transcendent of perception; yet is a veritable store house of resources and knowledge with a universal ability to include, differentiate and expand.

World famous Hypnotherapist Milton Erickson is said to have introduced the terms conscious and unconscious ( mind ) into the very general language of the hypnotherapist. The terms unconscious and conscious were made popular in the last century first by Freud then Freud’s student Carl Jung. All three of these people had very different meanings and understandings of their respective terminology. These terms today refer to both the psychological and physiological and to a very great extent integrate the old idea of a differentiated mind and body.

From a psychological perspective the conscious and unconscious may be explained as declarative and non-declarative memory. Declarative memory is our explicit or known memory that we have the abilities to access. This kind of memory is made up of our experiences and our factual / conceptual memory. Process or non-declarative memory is our unconscious ‘how to’ do, routines like motor skills for walking, eating or moving our hands to manipulate an object. This kind of ‘unconscious memory’ may also explain how the excessively drunken socialite somehow manages to get home well after they lose the power to talk coherently and often even walk. Some would liken this to the part of the brain that we all share with the common Newcastle homing pigeon.

In hypnotherapy or any change process, we can decide what we want to change consciously, for example some problem behaviour like over eating, and go into utilise unconscious resources, experience and process to attend to the how without knowing specifically how. So this is making use of the skills, coping mechanisms, resources and learned behaviours available to an individual at an other than conscious level to accomplish some movement towards change. This may be a point of consternations for some because if the ‘how’ is unconscious then how can it be utilised?

Tens of thousands of years ago in the Bronze age and later in the Iron age, the skilled craftsmen who created weapons, tools and artefacts from Bronze and Iron did not understand consciously the metallurgical properties of the material they moulded, hardened and crafter yet they did make and create. Similarly it is not necessary to know how the body heals or how we learn to affect and augment these natural processes. Similarly consciously you can choose to pick up an apple, it is your unconscious sensory-motor system that co-ordinates the movement. In hypnosis arm levitation is an unconscious process just the same as at home or the cinema your arm might stop mid-task as the screen and story temporarily capture all your attention. It is an honest unconscious response when your sense of humour activates and you laugh out loud.

A neuro-physiological perspective of the term unconscious can refer to the ‘how’ all of the biological, neurological and electrochemical processes of the body operate. The processes of neuronal firing, digesting food, healing an ailment or beating our heart are processes that are unconscious. Using both attention and intention certain unconscious processes can be influenced. For example breathing is largely an unconscious response yet we can breathe in consciously too.

Our life is an accumulation of experience both our own and our vicarious collections. We can’t always know what we are learning never mind how we are learning in any given experience. It is likely that over time, looking back we will gain deeper and broader understandings of our experiences, changing and expanding the meanings and uncovering more of our knowledge as conscious access or even personal revelations based on our ongoing unconscious processes.

What I can consider more important than too specific definitions is the functional ways in which these terms may be employed. These terms can be used to invite attentional splits, to offer ways to focus attentions and so open and develop new mental and neurological maps. To offer certain hope and possibilities of self directed change. To frame workable and intelligible experiences that can establish new experiences and promote well-being.

Finally as a commencement remark, there really is no requirement to get caught up in some tight, overly intellectualised debate of the terminology and what it means and simply experiencing the utility of the terms and … can be enough to notice your clients making up their own mind and bodily experiences as you can too. And to encourage the invitation of the creation of distinctions and associations and the … After all it can be and it is useful to say ‘you have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind, you have conscious body process and unconscious body process … in psychological understanding the mind … outside the body the body … outside the mind in physiological understanding … ’.

Newcastle Hypnosis Practice Group | December 1st | Mastering Hypnotic Language

This month, Wednesday 1st December, The Trance Cafe in Newcastle upon Tyne is Mastering Hypnotic Language with Clinical Newcastle Hypnotherapist Nigel Hetherington.

The topic is the STRUCTURE of hypnotic or influential communications with our selves and others. This is an opportunity to expand and equally condense our skills in HOW to ethically motivate and actualise all people towards a more complete authenticity in their life, relationships and business.

Specifically we will be using language as a way to powerfully influence and direct us towards our goals and objectives in a person to person, person to culture and person to society way, specifically with the language we use.

The structure of hypnotic and influential communications basically has two parts. Firstly the integral intention that drives us and secondly in how we as members of our culture and society use our words and values to share and hopefully influence each and everyone we communicate with.

Master Hypnotic Language Rapidly with Hypnosis Language Structure Mastery Cards ©






Before I share a very exciting and highly effective way you can both master and further develop your hypnotic language skills I want to share a short story of how this all came about.

I also would like to orientate your attention to a new and completely innovative product for learning and mastering the structure of hypnotic communications :

Hypnosis EditionLanguage Structure Mastery Cards ©

First a testimonial from Bill O Hanlon

When I teach people hypnosis, they often ask me for some script to use until they become more confident. I am opposed to scripts since each individual and hypnotic situation is unique.

Nigel Hetherington has come up with a perfectly entrancing solution-combinable cards that help generate unique hypnotic phrasing and language and helps you learn and master the patterns of hypnosis without being formulaic.

How I wish I had these when I was learning hypnosis.

Bill O’Hanlon, student of Milton H. Erickson and author of Taproots, An Uncommon Casebook, Solution-Oriented Hypnosis and A Guide to Trance Land

Now here is the story of how the Hypnosis Language Structure Mastery Cards © came about …

Five years ago in early 2005 I created a set of Hypnosis Language Cards that were designed to help students on my Clinical Hypnotherapy Trainings obtain a rapid and deeper understanding of the Structure of Hypnotic communications. Over the past five years these cards have undergone substantial development and testing and have received more massively positive feedback that you can see below.  

The Hypnosis Language Structure Mastery Cards developed by Nigel Hetherington exemplify the essence of NLP & Ericksonian Hypnotherapy; that there is indeed structure to the language of influence!

Integrating his background as a mathematician / computer programmer / Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Trainer with his deep love for the “words that change”, Nigel invites us to integrate the left and right hemispheres of our own experience with specific exercises that challenge and entertain. The genius of it all is the manner in which we, as learners, are encouraged to co-create hypnotic language patterns of our own, such that every time you play these learning games, the experience is as new and different as the first time you open up the set! Enjoy!

Michael DeMolina, MS, LPC, Psychotherapist, NLP/Hypnotherapy Trainer ( Alaska )

In 2001 I literally devoted all of my spare time to learning hypnosis yet specifically, working as a software designer and mathematician ( who hates formulas ) I was really drawn to the structure or the foundational principles that glued hypnotic communications together. I read every book and script I could get my hands on. I wrote thousands of pages of Hypnosis Language Patterns. I listened to tapes, CD’s and watched hundreds of hours of video and DVD’s.  Hypnosis and NLP honestly became my life and passion. It literally spoke to me.

I recall in October 2003 being on holiday in Spain having recently enrolled on an NLP Practitioner course. I had already enjoyed two years of NLP Introductions and other personal development courses and products. And at that time, in Xavia, I was reading the Structure Of Magic ( Bandler and Grinder ) and was in love with the Meta Model. The labels meant nothing yet at the same time the structure and deep structure touched me in ways that literally opened up new and different ways to Communicate with myself and with others. This was also the time I was reading ‘Patterns One; The ‘Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton Erickson’ ( Bandler and Grinder ) and I was seeing life and new possibilities opening up in a very different way. I recall my then partner saying to me “You love Hypnosis and NLP more than me!”

Having trained with Nigel and then with Christina Hall I believed I had a very clear understanding and fluency of hypnotic language…..that was until I received and played with the Hypnosis Language Structure Mastery Cards.

Since training in both NLP and Hypnosis I’ve been recording relaxation audios with a favourable response and once I played with the cards I created a few more. I’m overwhelmed by the response of my new recordings and the difference is without doubt the deep embedment of language through the use of these cards.

Furthermore it’s opened up new ways of coaching clients that have expanded my fluency with precision. The shifts my clients are making are immediate and highly sustainable. And the ‘piece de resistance’ is that it all comes at a time when I’m writing my first book – I’ll let your imagination guide you to how that will transpire. I have no doubt it will be a best-seller in its field and all because…..

With a background in NLP or Hypnosis these cards is a must to expand your resources without effort. And if you have a background in any kind of therapy they are essential should you want to cut straight through the ‘story’ of the client and get deep within minutes. As a rapport tool this second to none.

Paula McCormack – The UK’s Social Leader Coach

This was very true and I realised then I was following my bliss.

A testimonial from Andy Smith – Emotional Intelligence Guru

Brilliant, and an entirely original idea

It’s not often that an entirely new idea comes along in the field of NLP training aids, but this is one.

Unlike most NLP card sets, the Hypnosis Language Structure Mastery Cards don’t bother with trying to double as playing cards. This is a relief – as both a trainer and a participant, I always found that trying to play a card game (as recommended by, for example, Zebu and Salad cards) just got in the way of learning language patterns.

Instead, the Language Structure cards (as I’ll call them from now on) consist of hypnotic phrases, connecting words, and various kinds of qualifying, intensifying and time denoting phrases. The student uses the cards by first laying them out in patterns which are structured, but random as regards content. These patterns are simple to start with, but can become increasingly complex as more categories of phrases are added in.

The learning takes place as the student reads the cards aloud, in a hypnotic tonality – backwards! If the cards are laid out in a matrix structure, they can be read forwards, backwards, up, or down. In this way the student picks up the structure of hypnotic language – essentially phrases linked by conjunctions and qualifiers – without getting bogged down in choosing what to say for the content.

Another nice thing about these cards is that on the (surprisingly rare) occasions where the resulting sentences don’t make sense on the page (as it were), the student gains practice in pacing and pausing the vocal delivery to make it sound as the language patterns make sense.

The analogy that springs to mind is of a musician practicing scales. It’s not the finished work, but the practice is familiarising the performer with the structure of music, and getting skills into the muscle, unconsciously, to free up the conscious mind to concentrate on the meaning and emotional content of the finished performance.

These cards are a great idea (one I wish I’d had) and should be in the toolkit of every trainer teaching Ericksonian hypnosis and the Milton Model.

Andy Smith – Manchester Emotional Intelligence

So … following on … I resigned from my software developer job in 2005 and launched my company Communicating Excellence. I was then and am now following my calling in facilitating the totally positive and life enhancing art and science of NLP and Clinical Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. One of the major aspects of this kind of change work and facilitation is very naturally language, and this is of course Hypnotic Language – The Language of Influence and Change.

What I have created with the help and assistance of all my students and peers over this last five years is different to anything else out there and is a very simple and particularly easy way to rapidly master and use hypnotic communications. It is designed to totally condense and rapidly accelerate your learning and your ongoing mastery process of hypnotic language.

I want to say, deepest thanks and gratitude to all my students, friends and peers who have greatly assisted in the development and thorough testing of the Communicating Excellence :

Hypnotherapy to Relieve Stress and Worry

Mel Gibson's mugshot from his 28 July 2006 arr...Image via Wikipedia

Film icon Mel Gibson has very recently had a 10 day hypnotherapy session to help him cope with all of the worry and stress in his life.

Pressure in our life is very real and also necessary. Pressure makes people perform, strive to be better and very often is actually a motivating force. When there is more pressure than a person perceives they can cope with, this is the beginnings of stress.

If you imagine a buffer, a container, then the container’s capacity can be thought of as the amount of pressure an individual can cope with. When circumstances and situations fill the pressure container past its limit, everything over and above the pressure limit is called stress.

The vast majority of people regularly exceed their pressure limit and experience stress for a short period of time and then get back to a healthy life balance living within their coping limits of pressure. Sometimes the excess pressure or stress is way too much and can go on for a long time. This is what really is know as serious stress. When life’s challenges and problems are much to much for you to cope with so you experience high levels of stress for most of the time.

Long term stress exposure is particularly bad for both physical and emotional health. It affects performance, can damage relationships and can lead to depression.

One really effective solution to relieve stress is hypnosis and hypnotherapy. This psychological method will initially reduce and alleviate the stress emotions and good therapy afterwards will help you formulate new strategies and actions that are made to stop you getting deep into the stress state in the first place, that is they will deal with the causes from a psychological perspective.

Changing Your Perception of Reality

This is both a self hypnosis exercise and equally a way to evolve how you perceive your worlds.

There is one very important sentiment I want to briefly explore before offering you a self-hypnosis exercise.

Firstly a quote

“Perception is Projection, what we see is the state of our mind projected outwards”

Once there was a wise woman. A seer if you like. A wondering man came to her village and asked “I am looking for a new village to live in and I want to know what this village is like

The seer replied “What was you last village like?

The wondering man replied “Oh it was awful, full of thieves, robbers and adulterers. The most frightful sort of people you can imagine.”

The seer replied “My friend this village is much like you last one full of the most frightful people you can imagine.

The wondering man left and went on to look for another village.

A day or two later another wondering man came to the village and asked the seer “I am looking for a new village to live in and I want to know what this village is like.

The seer replied “What was you last village like?

The wondering man replied “Oh it was wonderful, full of friendly and helpful loving people to say the least.”

The seer replied “My friend this village is much like you last one full of the most loving people you can imagine.

The wondering man decided to stay and made a home for himself.

Another way of saying this is what the mind expects tends to be found. Hypnosis is a way of purposefully altering our own perceptions in powerful ways.

Here is the exercise. This comes from one of Carlos Castaneda books describing his relationship with his mentor Don Juan. Its about purposefully altering perceptions, this is just one way hypnosis, an altered state of perception can be attained.

This exercise takes 15 minutes to do it properly. Practice once per day for just one week.


  1. Find a bush or shrub that you can see, that is both in shade and in the light.
  2. Concentrate your visual attention on just one specific spot that is in the shade. Focus on it entirely.
  3. For the next 15 minutes focus just on that one spot in the shade – until you begin to see a bush that is entirely made out of shadow. Notice that the shadow is at least 50% of the bush.

You need to do this in the form of an exercise. A ‘theoretical’ knowledge of this is not enough.

If you want to learn to alter your perceptions and reality – DO THE EXERCISE!

When you do this you will experience massive changes in your perception. This exercise is actually doing a huge amount of things – you will only notice what these are by doing the exercises …

Trauma Resolution Workshop For Counsellors and Therapists – October 16-17 Newcastle upon Tyne

Arizona Monsoon Rainbow with Low CloudsImage by kretyen via Flickr

This workshop by Nigel Hetherington is based on Solution Focused Brief Therapy, NLP and Eye Movement Integration ( Created and developed by Steve and Connirae Andreas ). It is taking place in Newcastle upon Tyne and includes generative elements of ‘hypnosis.’

Eye Movement Integration is a very brief and content free process for resolving psychological traumas such as PTSD, intrusive memories, shame, guilt and other kinds undesirable emotional and identity imprints.

All Coaches, Therapist and Change Professionals will naturally deal with client trauma, blocks and problematic emotional states. EMI – Eye Movement Integration is a virtually content free process that again and again successfully deals with such issues. EMI can also be used to generate resource states which can be coupled to attaining client outcomes.

Once the Trauma imprint is dissolved where does you client want to go? Successful therapy and coaching is essentially two part. Eliminating blocks, stuck states and problematic emotional imprints and then assisting your client to generate the resources, deep desire and motivation to move towards their goals. This Newcastle based training by Nigel Hetherington in NLP, Hypnosis, EMI and Generative Change will deliver a full change process to do just this.

This two day weekend workshop is designed for Clinicians, Therapists, Counsellors,  Hypnotherapists, Social Workers, Doctors, Nurses, Police and all People Helpers who can then use these process based neurological methods to assist their clients neutralise traumatic memories and move into much more resourceful states.

Trauma Hypnotherapist Specialist Framing – Newcastle upon Tyne

Before a home is built the foundations are created. Everything rests on the foundations. Framing is like preparing the foundation for more effective hypnotherapy.

When working with clients successful neurolinguists and clinical hypnotherapists alike will use some kind of framing to assist clients in making changes easier. Framing also explains the hypnotherapeutic process to your client before they actually experience it.

This is recorded for the Newcastle upon Tyne workshop for therapists, counsellors and hypnotherapists on Trauma Resolution using Eye Movement Integration and Generative Change Methods by Nigel Hetherington.
