Leaving aside, for the moment, your repeated demands to the contrary, (and mostly because Lee has asked me to), I can provide you with summary information from the last 10 years of my State-mandated (and regulated) records. In the last 10 years, I have used the FP/TC with 123 formal clients, and informally with 5 (non-client) friends. Of the 128, one (one of the 5) was not completed, due to outside interruptions. ALL of the remaining 127 experienced complete relief of relevant symptoms at that time, and at the time of a 2-4 week followup, being able to directly deal with the ``feared object'' (as you put it) without noticable discomfort. 104 of them reported a complete absense of such symptoms as of a 1-year followup, and of the remainder, 14 were treated less than a year ago, two died (one in a car crash, the other in a sporting mishap), and the remaining 7 did not contact the office and were not at their previous address as of the one-year anniversary. Of the 63 cases treated before January, 1992, 51 reported a complete absense of symptoms as of their 5 year followup, 2 had died before 5 years, and the remaining 10 were lost to contact. Informal contact with two people treated in 1989 indicates that they are still completely without relevant symptoms.
In every one of those 127 cases, the process took less than one half hour. In most cases, far less.
