Hypnotherapy for Phobias
Suffer With A Phobia?
Fear of flying, driving, spiders, small spaces, dentists, needles, dogs - the list is endless. Most people are scared or anxious about certain things or situations, and usually try and manage their fear by avoiding whatever it is that bothers them.
You could be aware of how your phobia was created or may have no awareness of why or how you first learnt it. Sometimes phobias begin with a single incident, often when we are young, but they can gradually develop over time. We also learn fears by seeing other people respond to their 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 what it perceives as danger. In the case of a phobia, your natural reactions are working perfectly normally but in response to the wrong triggers.
Are you ready to live your life without fear?
Hynotherapy For Phobias
Working together, we will use a variety of Cognitive Hypnotherapy techniques to help you:
Learn self help techniques that you can use yourself to reduce any anxiety, hence allowing you to stay calm and in control.
Reduce the effects of your fear or phobia, as well as change the reaction to 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.
You will also receive hypnosis mp3s to listen to at home to reinforce your new learnings.
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!
So glad I went to see Jo. Have had a phobia of bees and wasps for years. Her technique in person and recording that I’ve listened too since, have been very effective. I feel so much calmer and have managed to deal with bee situations without freaking out! I’m feeling really hopeful that I’ve got this under control now. Would highly recommend Jo!
I booked a session with Jo because my claustrophobia was getting worse and giving me a 'knot' of anxiety in my stomach that I struggled with on a daily basis. After my initial session with her, I felt so much better and that knot disappeared. On a motorbike trip, the next week I had a panic attack on the motorway - something that had never happened before. I used the techniques that Jo taught me and was able to manage my anxiety and get through the journey. In preparation for my return journey on the motorbike, I had another session with Jo specifically focusing on my journey home. It was superb. I was able to truly enjoy the 5 hour journey with no hint of anxiety and i'm excited about future travels on the bike. Highly recommend.
I recently had a session with Jo via zoom to address my anxiety about going to the dentist. I thought that if hypnobirthing techniques work for childbirth, then they'll surely help me cope with the dentist's drill (lol). The techniques Jo shared along with listening to her MP3s really made a BIG difference to my mental state. Her calm, soothing and pragmatic voice really helped to alleviate my stress. While I doubt I'll ever be a fan of going to the dentist, at least now I don't fear it! 🙌✨
Jo was great at helping me establish coping mechanisms to get over my fear of needles. The session was at the start of lockdown so over Zoom but really helped even without being face to face. Super tangible techniques to help you cope with the fear.
I went to Jo for driving anxiety and I found the experience and advice so helpful. I definitely have a different perspective and feel more confident
Thank you so much for the session Jo, it really helped me prepare for my flight and enjoy my holiday. I listened to the mp3 on the way to the airport and felt really good on the plane. On the way back I didn’t listen to anything but throughout the flight felt in control. Highly recommend- thanks again! LS
