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.

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!

I found this helpful towards understanding how to ask clients questions for weight loss in addition to the weight loss certification course. It helped to understand the outline given in the courses of how to run sessions in full more with watching the case history.

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!

Really got a lot out of this class! It was great to see how Susie worked with a client’s resistance as well as sharing all her tools. My only suggestion is to maybe make a copy of her handwriting available for the online class as well. But this was a great class and I enjoyed watching it.

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.

Watching the first 6 sessions was very helpful and informative. The resistance Christina showed was a perfect example for a distance student to watch because it really helps when we face a similar situation. I can't wait to try the mama bear bread! Now people use their smart watches and phone apps to record steps so will there be an updated class recorded to show how you would incorporate updated tools? Now I am so curious how much weight Christina ended up losing and if she finally broke through all of that emotional resistance and got in touch with her feelings.

This was one of the best classes I have taken at HMI. Susie explains everything in detail and is very organized. I am already applying her methods working with a client for weight loss and so far it is working great. I love the performance agreement. Actually I have applied that method with another client with a different issue other than weight loss and it works great.

It's very informative to see through the sessions, not only one. What's even more helpful was Christina had a lot of resistance and how Susie worked patiently with unlimited positive regards processing all information with care. I learned a lot from her mentality and attitude besides hypnotic therapeutic techniques that I would like to apply to my own practice. Thank you!

I loved these sessions! It was great to watch how therapist/client rapport was built gradually, and how Christina slowly was letting down her guard. Susie's gentle approach to therapy leading to tangible results was so wonderful to watch and very inspiring! To watch the demonstration of utilizing the protective aura, and anchoring was very helpful! Thank you so much Susie.
