Some hypnotherapists use stories to communicate with their client’s subconscious mind.
Stories are a good way to communicate with a person as it is indirect and is non-intrusive. As you know, sometime people do not like to be told to do things, they just want to have their own way of thinking.
The “tortoise and the hare” is a story that can bring across the messages of being confident with oneself, perseverance and focus. It is good for people who are not determined or lack direction in life or lack self confidence.
