I "feel" that "pacing and leading" is a modality of utilization and a very powerful way to work woth clients, even as conversational trance. Lately I've realized that it comes from a time-factor, that is, symptom is time-frozen and therapy is re-installing fluidity, the possibility of time-flow, and most important, directed to the future. You start with the present (here) and move to the future (there), and one can even say, move away from the past (where the problem lies). Hypnosis and psychotherapy is essentially time-bonded...and I believe Korzybski said that language was time-bonding?
