63. Intense anxiety

PERSON: woman.
DESCRIPTION: serious anxiety, 10 useless sessions with a psychologist, usage of anxiolytic drugs; overwhelming symptoms.
APPROACH: conversational focus on a more real and less emotional point of view; strategic setting up of a plan to handle daily problems; gradual extension of that plan also to personal issues; hypnotic induction through the idea of moderate, yellow alarms instead of excessive, red alarms; conditioning against her shyness, with suggestions like: "able to look people into their eyes", "look until you discover that you have been caught while looking, so it is too late to retreat".
RESULT: immediate; feeling of freedom from her block; great joy.
UPDATE (1 year): good improvements day after day; more personal strength.
