    Hi Truman,

    Thank you for your message.

    Good question. In my experience, once all aspects of a problem have been FULLY resolved, it is extremely unlikely for it to come back. Even at that, for many people, this does not have to be a drawn-out process. Sometimes one or two plays of the CT will resolve the problem for good, and the associated beliefs and emotions will be neutralised.

    We are dynamic beings and have the capacity to experience the full emotional gamut. We also do not know what the future holds and life can throw up an interesting array of “pattern interrupts” and I believe these are intended to help us learn and grow.

    However, it largely depends on the problems that are being worked on and how we filter our experiences. If someone was working on an anxiety pattern, for instance, it is possible that they could experience anxiety in a future context. This would likely be a context that had not been considered previously – and would just be something else to clear as, when or if it comes up.

    I would contend, however, that the actual problem does not come back – in that, the emotion would invariably not be experienced in the same way or in the same context. It is kind of like finding out that Santa Claus isn't real (allegedly!). Once you accept the new suggestions of change, they stick. Your mind model will then conceive of yourself in a different way.

    Now, here's the tasty bit:

    If you are worried that your problem will come back, imagine that it does and CT that worry away.

    I hope this clarifies the matter for you, Truman. If not, please let me know.
