Powerful Essays
Choosing one of the case studies that you developed within your group during the class. Explain the cause of the person’s symptoms and construct a hypnoanalysis treatment plan and required outcome. Mr A presented with relationship problems. He feels he would really like to work on this issue now because all of his friends are now in committed relationships and feels as though he is the odd one out. During the initial consultation Mr A, aged 25 disclosed that he has few girlfriends and was lacking in confidence. He works part-time in a bakery/restaurant as a shop assistant. He has been working at the bakery for the last seven years since he left school and says even though he has worked full-time hours in the past, full time opportunities regularly arise but has never put himself forward to a full-time position. He admits he can be quite lazy at times and isn’t sure how much a full-time position would disrupt his life. He feels his grades were not good upon leaving school, went on to do a college course of which he didn’t complete. Further discussions revealed that Mr A fails at most things because he doesn’t push himself. When asked about his family he said that he lives with his parents and gets on with them fairly well but feels like they are moaning at him all the time about his untidy room and the fact he is still working part-time; he feels they do not have a positive word to say about him.

In this essay I will identify and explain Mr. A’s symptoms and devise a course of treatment for him which is grounded in recognised techniques and theory. I will attach a screed suitable for the client which will include relevant questions that the therapist would ask Mr A during the session.

The Initial Consultation

The initial consultation gives the therapist an opportunity to assess the suitability of Mr A for hypnotherapy and to decide whether the therapist is competent and has the skills and experience to help him.
