Free yourself from fears and phobias with the help of hypnosis. A few sessions can lift even the most extreme phobias.
Why choose hypnosis?
A phobia is an irrational or exaggerated fear of something that may have little or no real danger or threat. Most people that have a phobia are aware of the irrational nature of the fear but have almost no control over their anxiety.
Hypnotherapy accesses the underlying cause of the phobia or fear and helps to release the associated feelings or emotions so that you can learn a new response to the trigger. Rehearsing and visualising in hypnosis will help you to desensitize and enable you to take the first steps in getting more empowered to overcome the phobia.
Fight and Flight Response
Phobias are irrational fears that cause can be very extreme – just thinking about the trigger might cause a high level of anxiety including a racing heart, blood rushing into your legs, sweaty palms, fear of dying, fear of fainting and shortness of breath. The body goes into fight or flight response when faced with the perceived danger. Most phobias are rooted in an early childhood experience or in adolescence.
If the anxiety causes you to avoid certain situations, interferes with your everyday life and makes you extremely anxious you might want to consider treatment.
Some common phobias or fears are:
- Fear of snakes
- Fears of spiders
- Fear of heights
- Fear of dogs/animals
- Fear of germs
- Fear of needles
- Fear of flying
- Fear of closed spaces
- Fear of public speaking
- Fear of social settings
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy works on a subconscious level where the phobia needs to be released. Most people feel empowered and more in control after only one session. When the brain has learned to respond differently to the perceived danger the fear or phobia quite often disappears and loses its power.
My approach is gentle and client-centred. I will not make you “face“ something that you fear or expose you to something that you are afraid of.
