Lana and Confidence

One of Marisa’s clients, Lana, was a millionaire but constantly worried about money.
She shopped in charity shops and always saved more and more. During RTT
session, she remembered how she heard her father saying to his older son (her
father was around 65 years old): “You need to help me paying for Lana’s school, if I
will keep working like this, it will kill me!”. Lana’s first thought was that she needed to
pay her own school fees, but then she realized she was just 10 years old and felt
tremendous guilt. So her self-esteem was linked to how much money she had
because as a child she felt guilty that she couldn’t pay her own school fees.
