Progressive Dissociation

Being able to associate and dissociate is a skill. This video introduces its importance in NLP.

This progressive dissociation technique will enable most of your clients to dissociate from pain, in this example, from a headache.

Progressive dissociation using a headache as an example.

  1. Ask your client where the discomfort or pain is.
  2. Ask them to hold your wrist, then ask a sequence of questions:
  • What does your [client’s] head feel about the pain in your [client’s] head?
  • What does your neck feel about the pain in your head?
  • What does your shoulder feel about your head?
  • What does your elbow feel about your head?
  • What does your hand feel about your head?
  • What do your fingers feel about your head?
  • What do my fingers feel about your head?
  • What does my hand feel about your head?
  • What does my elbow feel about your head?
  • What does my shoulder feel about your head?
  • What does my head feel about the your head?

And then reverse through every step, all the way back to the client’s head, the last question being:

  • And how does your head now feel about your head?

Many clients find, to their surprise, that their head will be pain free. Give it a try!

 

The next NLP technique we will look at is Self compassion.
