Hypnotic Language

I could tell you that …, but …

I could tell you that stopping smoking is easy once you choose to, but you already know that to be true.

I could tell you that you can be confident whenever you want to be, but you will discover that yourself.


I could tell you that your clients will believe just about anything you say but your likely to realise that anyway as you use this pattern. The implication is that I’m not going to tell you (although I already have) and I’m going to overcome any resistance by giving you a reason for not telling your what I’ve just told you.
