Are you worried about flying? Has your fear of spiders got out of proportion? Do you dread having to do that presentation at work? Hypnotherapy can be a very effective way to help you to overcome fears and phobias


Phobias are actually examples of the mind connecting two unassociated things together, creating an association between the object (spider, snake) and the feeling (the fear reaction). We usually realise that the fear is not logical and that the object is not inherently dangerous or frightening. After all a spider in the UK is unlikely to harm us, and the risks associated with flying are much lower than other forms of transport – like cars or trains. However, once you are exposed to the situation/object you do not feel that you have control over the extreme fear reaction. This lack of control may even lead to a fear of feeling the fear itself, and this can become more limiting than the original fear of the object!


The most common indication of a phobia is a feeling of extreme fear or anxiety when exposed to the situation or object. You may experience an accelerated heartbeat and any one of the following symptoms: nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, hot/cold flushes, numbness or tingling sensation, trembling, fear of fainting or losing control of oneself. This is the result of the ‘fight-or-flight reaction’, which occurs in your brain and is there to protect you when faced with real danger and threats.


If you’ve had enough of a fears or phobia holding you back, get in touch now.


How Can I Help?

Hypnotherapy is particularly affective with fears/phobias and works in two ways: first, by helping to desensitise you to your specific trigger (breaking the association); and second, by helping you to feel relaxed and confident when in the trigger situation – using visualisation techniques whilst you are in a highly relaxed state.


If you are suffering from high levels of stress and anxiety, it will be helpful for us to address these areas first, before focusing on the specific fear or phobia. So, we will use whatever combination of therapies works best for you. Get in touch if you’re ready to change and book a FREE strategy session focused on your issue.
