Russell, aged 57, was emotionally closed and non-communicative in many ways. After a proxy session, Russell began to be more open with his wife, discussing things that normally he would have avoided. He began thinking about her well-being more actively, and going out of his way to take her to somewhere he thought she would enjoy. He also began ringing up friends and family and chatting with them, instead of the previous usual “Hi, Bye” kind of phone call.
