Case Study 1*

Ms J, 38, was an accountant with a large international firm. After 12 years with the company, she had suddenly developed panic attacks, when she made presentations to clients or internal staff. She was therefore adopting avoidance techniques so that other people would make the presentations.

She was embarrassed by this situation and didn’t want to let her employer know, but knew that this was affecting her chance of promotion, within the business.

In addition, she suffered from emetophobia (a fear of sickness) and this was getting worse, as she was avoiding going anywhere that there was any chance of sickness, eg, visiting friends with children or being in a room with other colleagues and clients who didn’t feel well.

Ms J attended weekly sessions and noticed improvement even after the initial consultation, where she then understood what was actually happening. She attended 8 sessions in total and was delighted with the outcome.

She no longer had the fear associated with the presentations and in fact started to enjoy the interaction again with the audience. Her fear of sickness had disappeared and she was able to deal with this in a more normal way. She was also able to take back control of other areas and had an increased motivation for change in her personal life too.

Case Study 2*

Mr D, 43, was a partner in a small chain of shops. He was finding it difficult to deal with staff issues and also was insecure about other professional and personal relationships. He felt that the business was not meeting its full potential.

Mr D attended 12 weekly sessions and again noticed improvement in relationships with both his business partner and staff fairly quickly. In particular, we used behavioural styles to identify the various types within his immediate vicinity and used visualisation techniques to rehearse how he would like to deal with them, in a calm and relaxed way.

In addition, increasing confidence levels was a key element in our sessions, in order to identify what changes he would like to make, using his professional experience, to increase customers and income for the businesses.

Case Study 3*

Mrs H, 35, was an administrator for a law firm and was a yo-yo dieter. She had been to many weight loss classes, but couldn’t keep to one particular weight. She was reasonably happy with her current weight and size but didn’t want to put any more on. She was also feeling stressed at work and was angry with various colleagues within the business. This often resulted in shouting matches and upset within the office environment and caused her boss to have many meetings with her and other colleagues to try to resolve their issues.

It was clear that she felt passionate about her work and was a perfectionist and didn’t understand why others did not meet the same standards as her.

In her home life, she was often angry and had constant fights with her family. She was a smoker and binge alcohol drinker when out with friends.

Mrs H attended for 12 weekly sessions and after losing weight initially, she stayed at a constant weight over the rest of the sessions. She noticed a difference in the work environment fairly quickly and found that she was able to control her temper and to deal with others in a more effective way. Her home life started to improve and again she found that she was able to deal with her family more effectively.

She stopped smoking and reduced her alcohol intake – this was difficult, due to her social group, but she realised that changing her behaviour was the only way to stabilise her weight and meet the goals that she wanted to achieve, in her professional and personal life.
