Phobias

Phobias

freedomFor people who don’t have a phobia, it can be hard to understand the potentially crippling fear experienced by sufferers. Sometimes simply naming the source of the fear is enough to generate the response in some people. Doing things and going places that most people take for granted can seem overwhelming.  But it doesn’t have to be that way…

If you want to have a chat about how  we can help you, we offer a free consultation so you can ask any the questions that aren’t answered below, before you decide to book.

You were born with only two fears “built-in”… fear of falling and sudden, loud noises. All the rest are learned, and they tend to have been learned quickly, in many cases, a “one time” learning. They can either be learned through personal experience or through witnessing the behaviour of a parent or other significant influence in your life, but either way they are learned quickly. That means…

If you can learn to do one thing quickly, you can learn to do something else, just as quickly.

Your phobia can be triggered by specific things (snakes, spiders, needles, flying, heights, etc) or by social situations (meeting new people, public speaking, talking to members of the opposite sex, etc), and can mean that your life was arranged to avoid these.

How many sessions will I need?

The breadth and depth of our experience is such that we are confident you will experience a significant shift within one session, that’s right… JUST ONE SESSION!

What's the difference between a fear and a phobia?

With a fear, the response is generally in proportion with the perceived threat, and is usually only experienced when confronted with the thing which causes the fear.

A phobia is typically a response greatly exaggerated in proportion to the perceived threat, and can usually be experienced even when the threat is not present, simply talking or thinking about it can cause the ‘phobic’ response.

When will I feel the difference?

You will experience immediate results, setting yourself free from fear and knowing you don’t feel the same way any more. This realisation is sometimes accompanied by a feeling of euphoria. In the days following the session your confidence in your ability will continue to grow stronger as your unconscious continues to make change.

Will I need to confront the source of my phobia?

Only if you choose to do so, and only if practical, however, this is the best way to understand how much you have changed.

What will happen during the session?

Through a relaxed chat, the patterns of behaviour that triggered the ‘phobic’ response will be identified, before being neutralised. This will be done differently for everyone as the process of creating fear is different for everyone. There is generally no need to go back and explore the source of the problem. Understanding how you created the fear is more useful than knowing why.

We use a combination of hypnosis, rapid induction therapy, EFT/TFT & NLP to make the transition both quick and effortless for you.
