Note: This article was originally published in January 2015, but was significantly expanded in February 2017 to include more in-depth information on building rapport to enhance your conversational hypnosis practice. Additionally, so you can enjoy this expanded content offline, as it has been converted into a downloadable eBook and MP3 Audiobook.
Has this ever happened to you?
You meet someone, and after just a few moments… you click. And not just in your usual run of the mill, “I grew up in the same town and like Cornflakes, too” kinda way, either.
It runs much deeper than that. You could talk for hours on end and never get bored. Sharing your thoughts and ideas seems easy and natural. And although you’ve just met this person, you feel an instant bond.
Deep down you know this is the beginning of a long and mutually rewarding friendship.
You experienced instant rapport. You see yourself mirrored in the other person. You communicate effortlessly and want to spend as much time as possible in each other’s company.
But then, there’s the other side of the coin. Sometimes you meet people and, despite your best efforts, you can’t find any common ground.
The things you enjoy, they don’t. It’s a struggle to make conversation on any level. You feel embarrassed, wishing there was some way you could break through the barrier that’s keeping you from getting to know them.
There is. It’s called Building Rapport.
And not only is rapport building invaluable when it comes to effective communication – your ability to build it will either make or break your hypnosis practice.
The absence of rapport is telling your subject’s mind that you’re a person that they can’t trust yet.
The problem with this is – without trust, there’s no way to push forward.
Meaning as a hypnotist, it’s your job to make your subject feel safe so you can quickly get down to doing what you do best: using hypnosis to improve their life.
Because when someone feels that their physical safety, social status and their ideas aren’t at risk… then you have most of the ingredients for rapport to flow like a river.
Interested to find out how you can open up these floodgates so rapport flows effortlessly and becomes second nature when you’re working with a subject?
If your response to this question has left you all bright eyed and bushy tailed, then you’re in for a treat.
As we’re about to share our top rapport building secrets to help you further boost your conversational hypnosis practice.
