PERSON: mature woman.
DESCRIPTION: nervous hunger; feelings of guilt; fear to die; terror for accidents; both parents died because of a cancer; colitis; psychosomatic problems; several surgical interventions, but in vain.
APPROACH: general hypnosis for the entire personality; discovery of an unconscious association between food and death (father unable to eat because of the cancer, therefore the unconscious mind learned that to eat means to keep the cancer away); discovery of an association between misted car glasses and fear (repressed traumatic event).
RESULT: sound decrease of the nervous hunger after the 1st session; psychosomatic headaches decreased; very calm after the 3rd session.
UPDATE (5 months): improvements still present, but limited.
