Fears and Phobias

Fears and phobias can be extremely debilitating and restricting in many areas of our lives at least 12% of the adult population suffer from a phobic response at some point in our lives.

The origin of a fear or phobia is a primitive subconscious response which is often 'symbolically attached' to an object, situation or event which causes little or no real danger. You may experience strong avoidance behaviour connected with your fear/phobia, along with intense feelings of anxiety, loss of control and panic. Fears and phobias can be triggered and/or exacerbated during times of high anxiety.

Using Solution Focused hypnotherapy and proven NLP techniques fears and minor phobias such as fear of flying, spiders, water, birds, heights etc. can be resolved quickly, generally in three to four sessions.

PTSD/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, painful memories and traumatic experiences can often be dealt with in the same way.

The process enables you to disassociate from the fear/phobia, using proven techniques that enable the emotion to be taken out of the experience. The unwanted patterns of behaviour are replaced with more realistic behaviour allowing you to respond how you actually want to, calm and in control.
