Presenting issues

The client male 25year old, presenting a lack of self-confidence. Reporting a

common situation in life were whenever he offered an opinion or commented
on something being discussed, someone would disagree with him he would
take this as a personal rejection. Thus he stopped offered opinions .desired
outcome was to be able to let any disagreement be OK and be able to agree,
disagree and discuss the issues, without feeling bad or have this feeling of
As part of the counselling I asked about his parents, they had separated when
he was 15. He got on well with both parents and his two brothers. The client
was married, now divorced (very young for this I thought) It was eighteen
months since the end of his marriage, he said that his wife was consistently

CBT, hypnosis and self-hypnosis learning.

CBT handout the relaxation response practice. Also gave the CBT
questionnaire on emotions, asking about the frequency and intensity of anger,
fear/anxiety, sadness/depression/hurt, guilt/shame, and happiness. He

Used my version of the Elman induction, client responded well with a good

Creating a scene in which the client was watching another person, who he
saw as self-confident. I suggested that he was getting closer and closer from

bearing, I then had him imagine walking off, hearing and feeling his firm
steps, seeing and feeling his confident walk. Then suggested two brief
encounters. In the first he met someone, giving an opinion the person
disagreed, but this was fine and they were able to discuss the issue openly
and easily. Next, he encountered someone (similar to his X wife) who
attempted to belittle him, only this time he was fine and they were not able to
make him feel bad; he walked away still feeling confident and positive.

I saw this client for two more sessions each was to teach self-hypnosis
techniques. On the fourth week I called the client asking him to review. He


reported that in the weeks following the sessions he noticed more and more

decision making, quote, I feel like I am growing again, I wish I had done this
a long time ago.
