Close your eyes and inhale deeply and hold it for three seconds…. and then exhale slowly … (Pause as subject responds)

Again, breathe in deeply and exhale slowly …holding for 3 seconds…and releasing… keep doing that 5 or 6 more times…

As you inhale, you are bringing in calming and positive energy into your body… and as you exhale it causes your entire body to relax more and more… each time sinking further into the surface beneath you… as all the negative and nervous energy is being completely expelled from your body… (Pause and observe)

Now… as you gently allow your breathing to return to a rate that is comfortable for you…. You begin to feel more relaxed and more comfortable as you sink further into the chair… you might even feel this energy tingling throughout your body…and you will notice how relaxed your whole body has become…From the top of your head…To the tips of your toes…notice the eyelids how they have become very heavy…they may even twitch at this moment… you are showing signs that you are moving into a very deep, very peaceful state of relaxation … and as I continue talking to you… you can keep relaxing more peacefully … not caring about how deeply you must relax…just happy to continue becoming more calm and at ease …continuing to breathe easily and freely… always knowing that you are safe here in this room….

And as the outside world fades more into the background… You continue to let go of any negative thoughts or feelings… any sounds around you or in the distance will only make you relax further…The only sound that will matter to you…will be the sound of my voice…which will continue to take you deeper and deeper…Into a wonderful state of relaxation…you may find that your mind begins to wander…it doesn’t matter where you drift…where you go…my voice will travel with you at all times…

In a few moments time…You will hear me say the word…”Nowwww”…And when you hear me say the word…”Nowwww”…you will relax 10 times deeper…as you continue to sink down into the surface beneath you and journey further into your subconscious mind…becoming more and more limp nowww …More and more relaxed…and comfortable too…Just feel yourself sinking down nowww… relaxing deeper and deeper now…becoming even more comfortable now…now feeling completely at peace now… calm and now content…. as you continue to drift down now…Really enjoying this wonderful feeling now of complete relaxation…And there may be times now when you will not be aware of the body…You wont be aware of the body at all…this only relaxes you further… now as you continue to go deeper.. and deeper relaxed…

In a moment I’m going to count from 10 down to 1… and when I reach the number 1… you will relax even deeper into this feeling… and you will be even more comfortable… ready to delve deeper into your subconscious mind… to that part of you that stores lots of information and influences your every day life…. Your subconscious mind will always be aware of what I’m saying to you…so it keeps becoming less and less important for you to consciously listen to my voice…your subconscious mind, and all levels of your inner mind can hear and receive everything I tell you…and will be able to respond… your conscious mind can relax completely… knowing that we are journeying here for the purpose of healing…

10…9…8…going down now….7..6…5…now further down into your subconscious mind….5…4…3..2..1 be there now
