My client, “Bruce” came to me full of anger and frustration over being cheated out of a large sum of money by a contractor. He had been unable to sleep, would think about it during the night, and it was in the back of his mind all the time.
Bruce felt that it was eating him up and keeping him from enjoying his work and his life. His level of intensity was 9-10 on a scale of 0 to 10. I asked whether this reminded him of another time in his life. He could not think of any connection. So we started.
