NLP Milton Model


The following articles are based upon my notes taken during McKenna Breens Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses. Milton's language patterns are the basis of most covert hypnosis and persuasion techniques. These patterns provide the foundation for all your hypnotic language skills.

Richard Bandlers method of teaching these language patterns is a mixture of installation and writing out pages of examples. The more you work with these patterns, the more you will surprise yourself as you discover the patterns begin to naturally appear in your language.

Inverse Meta-Model Patterns

The Milton Model is often considered to be the opposite of the meta-model. This is because the meta-model is designed to take a clients vague language and ask questions to move to a more concrete description and move the client towards a solution, whereas the milton model is based around using vague language to enhance the hypnotic process.

Additional Milton Model Patterns
