Cross Over Mirroring | NLP World - Glossary.

Cross Over Mirroring

Cross Over Mirroring is when you match a person’s body language with a different type of movement, e.g. tapping your foot in time to their speech rhythm. Apparently, Milton Erikson was performing this when he couldn’t tap his foot (from his wheelchair) when a client was tapping theirs, so he started to tap his finger instead – gaining rapport!

It is different to mirroring or matching, in as much as you use different parts of your body to match what your client is doing.
