Hypnotherapy for treating phobias
The magnitude of phobias these days is simply mind blowing. I find that 80% of the clients I see are there because they have either a fear of something or they have a phobia.
Not all fears are phobias. You can have an intense fear of something and not be phobic. The person with an intense fear can often be in the fearful situation whereas the true phobic could not. The phobic reaction would be too strong.
How are phobias caused?
True phobias are caused by events that have been locked into the subconscious mind.
A phobia is a type of anxiety response. It is an extreme form of fear or anxiety triggered by a particular situation (such as going outside) or object (such as spiders), even when there is no danger.
For example, you may know that it is safe to be out on a balcony in a high-rise block, but feel terrified to go out on it or even enjoy the view from behind the windows inside the building. Likewise, you may know that a spider isn’t poisonous or that it won’t bite you, but this still doesn’t reduce your anxiety.
Someone with a phobia may even feel this extreme anxiety just by thinking or talking about the particular situation or object.
How I help people with Phobias
If you have or are suffering from a phobia we now have effective treatments that can help. You can come to see me personally or via an online video conference such as Skype. Phobias in some cases need only 1 session but in some cases it takes 2 for successful resolution with further reinforcing of the therapy on the clients part.
I treat Phobias the following way:
- Thought Retraining. I teach the client how to stop the thoughts that cause their phobic response.
- Hypnosis. Using hypnosis we can remove the fear of panic response and replace the fear with the response they would prefer in the future.
- Testing. If possible we test the work we have done and compare the new feelings and responses compared to how they felt before. Providing we have the necessary resources to do that.
