Have a Phobia?
Imagine living your life without fear.
Fear of flying, spiders, dentists, needles, driving, dogs or claustrophobia? The majority of us are frightened of something, but we can generally manage the fear successfully by avoiding the thing that bothers us.
You might be aware of how your phobias were created or perhaps you have no awareness of how or why you first learned to fear a particular object or situation. Some phobias begin with a single incident, usually as a child, but sometimes they develop over time as we respond to seeing a close family member with the same fear.
The way the brain works gives us clues as to why phobias develop. Experiencing a strong negative emotion, in the presence of some object or creature, leads to an unconscious learning that this is dangerous and to be avoided in the future.
When faced with that object again, or even something that looks remotely like it, your brain will trigger the fear response to motivate you to get away from danger. In the case of a phobia, your natural reactions are working perfectly normally but in response to the wrong triggers.
"You helped me with my fear of being in the car as a passenger and driver. You are so approachable and caring always keeping in touch. I would have no hesitation recommending you highly."
Can Hynotherapy for Phobias help you?
Working together, we will use a variety of Cognitive Hypnotherapy techniques,to help you:
- Reduce the effects of your fear or phobia, as well as remove the trigger that causes you such fear and anxiety. As a result, this will leave you free to enjoy your life!
- Help you prepare and rehearse for the next time you come into that situation or see that object.
- Learn self help techniques that you can use yourself to reduce any anxiety, hence allowing you to stay calm and in control.
- Your sessions will last 60 – 90 minutes and you will receive hypnosis mp3s, including a personalised mp3 usually after the second session.
Don’t think your fear or phobia is silly – fear is not rational. There is no need to let it carry on dictating your life. Your unconscious can be ‘reprogrammed’ and as a result you will not react in the same way.
And don’t worry you wont be completely without fear. We all need a certain amount of fear in our life as actually it enables us to stay safe. After all being totally fearless while doing day to day activities such as driving could have serious consequences!
Hypnotherapy for Phobias may help:
Many people suffer from phobias and the list of things that trigger them is endless. Some of the most common fears and phobias include heights, confined spaces, needles, public speaking, social phobia, fear of flying, and spiders.
Fear of Flying – Aerophobia
Did you know that flying is one of the safest modes of transport available? Fear of flying can often be driven by your imagination, and, as a result, could be reinforcing your belief by stopping you flying altogether.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy could help you and make the holiday you dream of a possibility.
Fear of the Dentist – Dentalphobia
You may not have visited for years and you know it’s irrational. However, your emotional response is much more powerful than mere thought, and so we have to look at another way to get rid of the fear.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a great way of overcoming dental phobia permanently.
Fear of Public Speaking - Glossophobia
Do you have discomfort or fear of public speaking? An intense fear of being judged by others? Suffer physical symptoms such as blushing, shaking or sweating? Building self-esteem whilst also learning to relax and to manage feelings of anxiety can help.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy will help you address your fear and, as a result you could be surprised at your response next time you see one!
