Using the Case of Janet, guidelines are provided for clinical hypnosis interventions with the presentation of anxiety. Various trance interventions are explained in detail vis-a-vis targeted skills teachings for clients including: strengthening of self-concept; worry tool-kit; and externalization of worry. Homework exercises are brainstormed in the context of post-hypnotic work for strengthening suggestions.
