Phobias

Hypnotherapy could help you to overcome fears and phobias

Fears or phobias can make us feel miserable, frightened and out of control. Phobias are by definition irrational, but can be very ingrained, and may feel impossible to overcome through logic or willpower alone.

However, because these fears exist in the unconscious part of our minds, hypnotherapy can be a very effective way of overcoming them. Often just a few sessions of hypnotherapy can help to reduce or remove phobias and unhelpful fears permanently, leaving you free to enjoy you life to its fullest.

What is a phobia?

Fear is a natural emotion that helps to keep us safe when faced with things that could harm us.

However, a phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of something that poses no real threat, and that most people would not fear. The fear may persist in spite of any logical reasoning.

An estimated 10 million people in the UK have some form of phobia.

Particularly if your phobia has been adversely affecting your ability to live life in the ways you choose, perhaps now is the time to allow hypnotherapy to help you to overcome this.

How can hypnotherapy help you to overcome your phobia?

Conscious reasoning, however logical, often fails to tackle phobias, because they are stored deep in your subconscious mind. However, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome them, by changing the way your subconscious mind works:

  • Learning deep relaxation techniques such as Calm Breathing offers a useful starting point for approaching situations that have caused you anxiety in a more calm and confident way.
  • Hypnotherapy can help you to remove irrational and unhelpful links between particular objects or situations and excessive fear
  • You can use time when you are relaxed in hypnosis to envisage how you would really like to react to the focus of your phobia, and learn how to work towards this – all in the safety of the therapist's chair. 
Choice Hypnotherapy provide tailor-made therapy for every client

As with all hypnotherapy I provide, help to overcome phobias is designed on an individual basis for each client. Some simple phobias may be alleviated in just two or three hypnotherapy sessions; others may require a few more.

In all cases, the first step is to arrange a free consultation, so we can discuss how hypnotherapy can help you and you can decide whether you wish to proceed.

Please note: you will not suddenly be face-to-face with the object you fear!

I would like to reassure you that my clients are never unexpectedly exposed to the object of their fears during therapy. Every effort is made to make your hypnotherapy experience feel as comfortable and safe as possible - I am here to help you, not to frighten you! If you have any concerns, please give me a call or discuss them with me during your consultation.

Client testimonial: "I felt completely at ease from the initial consultation and that continued throughout my visits. Although very professional, your warm and friendly manner helped me enormously. I'm now moving forward thanks to you" - May 2015
