A technique used by hypnotists and NLP practitioners to establish and increase rapport with a client to obtain positive and stronger responses to suggestions. When a person is mirroring, he or she subtly matches the actions or another person using the opposite part of his or her body. Thus, if a person raises their right hand, the person who is mirroring might raise their left hand, arm, finger, wrist, or eyebrow, etc. It is as if they are looking in a mirror. This process must be done subtly, otherwise the person being mirrored may feel you are making fun of them and break the rapport.
