This paper discusses the therapeutic use of experiential analogies with clients in a hypnotic trance. The argument that experiential analogies can facilitate powerful therapeutic outcomes, especially when they are paired with multi-sensory suggestions, is developed. Two case histories are elaborated on to exemplify the creative use of experiential analogies with multi-sensory suggestions.
