In this episode, Adam creates a hypnosis session designed to help someone with a bereavement or loss of a loved one. It uses elements of imagination to resolve unfinished business or loose ends and to say the words that couldn't or weren't said when the person was alive. This session uses an innovative metaphor for the pain and sorrow of loss, to reduce the impact and to introduce more positive and resourceful emotional states.
Adam is joined by hypnotherapist and trainer Sheila Granger who discusses how she responded to the tourism industry screeching to a halt by using hypnosis to enable people to travel to exotic locations while still in their own homes.

Florentina explains how she helps men to connect with their true identity.
