ROBERTS, Innerchange Counseling, 757 Sand Lake Rd., Onalaska, WI 54650, USA,, has written about hypnotherapy and Haiku. Abstract: This article illustrates how effective hypnotic communication closely resembles the Haiku form. Working with the Haiku form is an approach that encourages the therapists to keep their awareness sharpened and observation astute. Haiku is not just a type of poetry; it is a way of looking at the world with a heightened level of attentiveness. Crafting effective and evocative hypnotic suggestions requires that the therapist become immersed in the world of passion, images, sounds, sights, opposites, humour, creativity, and perceptive consciousness. Enhancing our skills of observation is an important aspect of the continuing experience of the hypnotherapist. The Haiku method can help us use what we observe in developing evocative hypnotic suggestions that help the client access their internal representational systems to stimulate their healing response. A method for learning to write Haiku is presented.
