Clinical Case History - Six Session Series Description

Christina wants to lose weight and maintain her weight loss. She has lost weight in the past only to gain it back.

In these six sessions, Susie Kappas builds great rapport with Christina to help guide, motivate and educate her about permanent healthy weight loss. Even though Christina consciously wants nothing more than to lose weight, it’s hard for her decide what weight she wants to be, and we begin to notice that Christina has a lot of subconscious resistance and many fears about losing weight.

With finesse, Susie works with Christina cognitively and in hypnosis to increase her confidence, motivation, self-love and care, and guides her in building a healthy new self-image at her ideal size. Susie discovers and reinforces all the personal reasons and positive emotions for Christina to lose and maintain her weight loss, and as well helps Christina with her diet. She teaches her to stabilize her blood sugar and strengthen her metabolism through diet and exercise while reinforcing these new healthy eating habits and behaviors in hypnosis.

While building her up and strengthening her mind and body, Susie then begins to gently uncover Christina’s blocks and subconscious resistance to losing and maintaining her weight loss. We find that Christina has lost weight numerous times in the past, 100 pounds, only to gain it back because of her fear of attention from others. Susie guides Christina through her subconscious resistance each week and as Christina begins to become more consciously aware of her resistance, she begins to break free.

Some of the tools Susie uses with Christina to successfully break through her fears and resistance are EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), imagery journeys, venting dreams and using an Aura of Protection and Self-Love all around her. As Christina begins to lose weight and inches, she realizes that she has never lost weight like this before, and she likes it!

It is inspiring to watch Susie create a safe and fun environment for Christina, introducing new tools for her each week, and to see first-hand how she demonstrates the many hypnotic sessions to aid Christina in permanent healthy weight loss. She makes the journey fun, compassionate, easy and doable.

The chance to see the variety of tools being employed to help this client with her weight loss goal. I particularly liked the delicately used Inner Child work in session 4. It was great to see how sessions were adjusted from the plan to accommodate the resistance issues she had, and I could see how the end response was probably much more effective, because Christina was allowed to take things at her own pace.

It was very useful watching this case history after attending the weight loss weekend workshop, to see how everything works together. The parts where Susie discussed her thoughts and plans with the class when Christina wasn't there were also helpful. The client came in with what seemed to be a lifelong attitude of "I'm going to do it my own way just because," which made it an especially valuable case for students to watch (as I think a student in one of the classes pointed out).

This is definitely the perfect supplement to the Weight Loss and Hypnosis two-day seminar. Here, Susie very methodically and gracefully creates rapport with Christine who during the first sessions showed resistance. At the end of the sixth session, Christine was happy to see results that encouraged her to continue working with Susie on consecutive private sessions. Great class!

Susie's thorough, nonjudgemental, and caring manner was as valuable to see modeled as all the other gems she shared. I'm so happy I was able to watch these six visits in their entirety and also have the benefit of the discussions prior to the hypnosis session. This method incorporates multiple opportunities for learning. Thank you Susie!

Seeing these sessions was a really helpful complement to the Hypnosis and Weight Loss course. Seeing Susie work through each session with the client really helped to clarify how the process works. It was also great to see a client that was very positive about some aspects and resistant in others, and how Susie helped her work through that resistance.
