Hypnotherapy for Phobias
Together we can tackle phobias at their core.
I have met a great number of people that have used hypnotherapy for phobias. I have also watched those television programmes that cure a spider phobia by the end of the hour.
It does happen. Some people can get on top of a phobia quickly. However, some are more complex than you think.
Often, people will say to me that they have had their phobia forever, they don't remember a time when they were not scared of spiders, snakes, heights etc. They believe that they will be scared for the rest of their lives because they do not know how to be calm when they are in the phobic situation. Some, can pin point the exact time, place and feeling that came over them when they experienced their phobia for the first time.
So what happened and how do we tackle it?
Well, sometimes we can learn to be phobic of a situation or thing. Yep that's right, your phobia can be learned!
This is great news because you can unlearn, regulate and change your responses in any situation that causes anxiety. This is particularly the case with phobias and this is why hypnotherapy is so good at unravelling them.
Now, as I explained before, some phobias are much more deep seated and relate to a much deeper anxiety. There are many clients who have used hypnotherapy or other methods to try to get over their particular phobia but it has failed because the technique that was used did not get down to the core issue that underpinned the anxiety in the first place.
It is vital that the root cause of the issue is completely dealt with otherwise the phobia just re-emerges or it is reinvented into another anxiety that affects the client later on down the line.
I know that the feeling and the fear can be seriously intense. You may have started to avoid places, situations, holidays and a whole host of other things that you could be doing.
Alongside other forms of anxiety, phobias can be extremely debilitating. Some clients lives have got an awful lot smaller as a result and most of the time their family is affected too.
I knew a client who had not seen her daughter in 15 years because she could not fly to Australia to see her. Her daughter was eternally greatful when her mother finally left the phobia behind and met her in arrivals to spend some much needed quality time with each other.
I truly love to work with phobias and I love to see my clients live more fulfilling lives as a result of leaving their fears behind. You can do it too.
