Jasmine, a 29-year-old , came to see me as a therapist due to feeling stressed, exhausted, having frequent headaches, and worrying persistently about her work situation. She had experienced anxiety in the past and had received counseling during college, which she found helpful. However, she had not received any further treatment for mental health difficulties until seeing me.
After an assessment, it was determined that Jasmine had generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), likely brought on by recent threats of redundancies in her workplace. Through our sessions, we explored different treatment options and decided to incorporate hypnosis and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to help her manage her anxiety and reduce her symptoms.
Over time, Jasmine responded positively to the therapy and reported feeling more relaxed, sleeping better, and experiencing fewer headaches. She also reported a decrease in her worrying and an improved ability to cope with everyday stressors. As a result of her progress, I referred Jasmine back to her GP for ongoing support and to explore the possibility of reducing her medication dosage.
It was rewarding to see Jasmine's progress and the positive impact that hypnosis and EFT had on her mental health. By working collaboratively and tailoring the treatment to her needs, we were able to achieve successful outcomes and improve her quality of life.
