On her third session, Chris asked me a question I hear quite frequently, “How do I know the fear will not return?”
I asked her a question that only four weeks earlier would have sent her into a panic, “Imagine the worse – you walk into your doctors surgery tomorrow and they say ‘I am sorry but you have cancer!’ how do you feel?”
Chris looked away and replied, “No, I do not want to think of that!” but of course I had seen that she had thought of it and experienced exactly how she would feel.
I pressed her further, “but you did feel didn’t you?”
“Yes, I did,” Chris replied, “I immediately thought ‘I will deal with it!’ I cannot believe this has been so easy. Why didn’t I address this years ago!”
Chris’s immediate response had not come from her conscious mind but her deeper subconscious mind – the place where the fear had resided. I knew, and then so did she, that her cancer phobia and the reasons why it had occurred had gone – for good!
A year later Chris wrote me the following email.
"Can you believe it's been a year since I first contacted you regarding my cancer phobia and I wanted to let you know how things were going.
"I havent [sic] written before because I didnt [sic] want to jinx things but, having been phobia free for a year I felt it was safe to now say THANK YOU.
"I cant believe how differently I have approached things over the last year. I think my biggest achievement was losing over 30lbs in weight which I really needed to do but always avoided before because it would trigger symptoms and I would convince myself that the weight loss was due to something terminal.
"Through our sessions i was also able to see that there were some issues that I needed to put to bed with my mum and that went well.
"Both my husband and daughter have noticed how much more relaxed I am, which obviously makes for a harmonious family life.
"so, thank you very much for your help. As you may recall the hypnotherapy approach was a last resort for me and one that I am very glad I took.
"I hope you and your family are well.
"Kind regards "Chris"
