Hypnotherapy for Phobias and Fears

Hypnotherapy for Phobias and Fears
"The enemy is fear, we think it is hate but it is fear."

- Gandhi 

Fear is an emotional state in the presence, or anticipation, or imagination of danger.

It is usually accompanied by feelings of extreme agitation and dread, a desire to flee or attack and a variety of other unpleasant feelings both emotional and physical.  Some fear is necessary to keep us safe from harm, after all we are both prey and predators.  But too much fear is a terrible thing, it can disrupt our professional and personal lives. It can  dictate what we do and how we do it. 

Phobias are a persistent, intense and irrational fear accompanied by a compelling need to flee or avoid the phobic object or situation.   And the more that we flee or avoid, the worse it gets. 

There are several different classifications of phobia but all are characterised by the above description.  We may be afraid of an object, animal, social situation, doctors, dentists, heights, flying, confined or open spaces or any number of things. 

I had a phobic fear of frogs which I saw everywhere.  When it got to the point that I was terrified of a black bin bag (because it was a frog – obviously!) I decided to take action and a professional colleague treated me with hypnotherapy.  After three treatments I had identified the cause of the fear (known as the seeding event) and completely recovered from it.

Hypnosis is one of the few therapies which can tackle fears and phobias successfully.  We start with a detailed history seeking for that seeding event and talk about your fear.  We discuss the physiology involved so that you understand what is happening to you and why.  And then we use hypnotherapy so that you can explore your fear in a calm, rational, relaxed way.  As your body and mind relax I address your unconscious mind where the deepest, darkest fears lurk and begin to release them.

Fear is an emotion.  And you can change your emotions.  The mind is a wonderful, powerful thing and you can control it!

How amazing is that?
