Presented By: John Melton
Hypnotherapist: John Melton, CHt
Client: Mallory - Session 6 of 6
Presenting Issues: Anxiety and Lying
Description: Mallory has been improving with assertive communication, having negotiated more pay with her employer. She recognizes that she deserves the peace of mind that comes with speaking up for herself. Her anxiety is now “little to none.” She continues to get a little anxious when she runs behind schedule. John explains that dealing with anxiety triggers is not so much a “battle.” Rather, developing awareness of anxiety in the moment allows it to lose its power. Mallory has not been feeling the urge to lie or be passive aggressive. Furthermore, her anxiety and feelings of anger have diminished. Her inner voice has also been kinder. John reinforces that she has terrific attributes, which are “okay to accept.”
Techniques Used: John guides Mallory through a comforting place and a progressive relaxation. He suggests that the calm starts as a decision. He reinforces that she is bringing together the child, adolescent, and adult within her. He leads her through the arm rigidity technique, where the adolescent within places resentment and anger in the arm and releases these feelings. He repeats this technique three times. After releasing these feelings, the adolescent has newfound space and freedom to connect with herself. He provides suggestions for accepting herself as valuable, calm, and assertive. He reinforces the unity between the child, adolescent, and adult self within Mallory’s heart. The child and adolescent are safer and free in the adult self’s loving presence. He suggests that she continues to heal, feel lighter and empowered, continues to use breathing, but, most importantly, remembers that she deserves to be loved. He counts her up, 0 to 5, and out of hypnosis.
