Most of us have phobias or are frightened of something, but we can generally manage the fear successfully by simply avoiding the thing that bothers us.
But sometimes we can’t avoid the thing we fear – and the phobias begin to take over our lives. Then it affects our family, our social life, careers, and holidays and makes us anxious or even depressed.
With Cognitive Hypnotherapy I can help you let go of your fear or phobias. It doesn’t matter how your fear began or even if it is something you have lived with for many years. Often it only takes 2 or 3 sessions to make permanent changes.
Brenda helped me with a long-standing phobia. After 3 sessions with Brenda, I no longer feel panicky at the mere mention of a spider! I just wish I had met Brenda, with her calm and very understanding nature, years ago. I highly recommend the experience
I offer an initial consultation at my office or via phone or Skype. This allows you to ask any questions you might have and we can both agree if my approach is right for you. Contact me via my online form or Tel: 07895 290528 to book.
Fear is a “normal” response
Fear is a natural response to real danger. You may have heard of the “Fight or Flight Response”. This is where our bodies prepare us to run away from the danger or stay and fight it. This automatic chemical response leads to those feelings you are familiar with. Your pulse races, your breathing becomes more rapid, you feel butterflies in your tummy and that irresistible urge to get out of the room.
But if you are experiencing this reaction to something and everyone else around you is calm and getting on with life, then you know your fear is irrational and it is something that can be safely stopped.
There are many common phobias – spiders, flying, snakes etc as well as the more unusual ones such as knives and clowns. It is estimated that 10% of us will be affected by a phobia at some time during our lives.
Some phobias begin with a single incident (often as a child). But sometimes they develop over time as we get used to seeing a close family member with the same fear.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can Help
It doesn’t matter what your own particular fear or phobia is or how it began. The important thing is that it can be changed using Cognitive Hypnotherapy usually in just a few sessions. And because everyone is unique I have many techniques to help you take back control of your life.
