Well-formed outcome


The importance of a well-formed outcome in hypnotherapy with Hypnobalancing™.

What is a well-formed outcome?


If an outcome is poorly formed in your mind or you cannot see it then it is very unlikely that you will achieve it. A well-formed outcome is a term originating in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) for an outcome someone is willing to achieve.

A well-formed outcome is individually designed to get you to think about what you do want in a general way that you can do something about, rather than just wishful thinking. It meets certain conditions designed to avoid unintended costs or consequences and resistance to achieving the goal resulting from internal conflicting thoughts or feelings about the outcome. It is stated in positive, initiated and maintained by an individual, sensory-based, testable, and it is ecological.




Test your goal


An outcome is well-formed, if:

  • You know clearly what you want and it is specific enough that if you gave it to someone else they would immediately understand what you wanted.
  • Achieving it is totally within your control.
  • You are motivated by the benefits that this outcome will get for you.
  • You are congruent with the consequences to other people.
  • You know what the first step is and you are willing to take it.

These pages are intended to provide information for those interested in psychotherapy using hypnotherapy. It is not intended to replace psychotherapy or personal consultation, examination or diagnosis by a licensed medical practitioner. I am not a medical doctor. I specialize in helping people with anxiety and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official license to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from that of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medication prescribed. Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric intervention where this is required.

If you have any questions about psychotherapy with hypnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to inform you.
