A phobia is an extreme, irrational fear of a situation or an object, that causes severe symptoms of anxiety or panic, for example, palpitations, dizziness, sweating, chest pain, shortness of breath, which can make the sufferer believe they are dying. There may have been an initial trigger for the phobia, something that caused you to feel anxious, but it is a learnt behaviour which can be ‘unlearnt’.
Some common phobias are:
- injections or having blood taken
- the dentist
- public speaking
- enclosed spaces
- thunder and lightening
Your unconscious mind causes severe anxiety, part of the fight or flight response, in an attempt to keep you safe, but it has gone into overdrive and needs to learn new habits; you can change the old ones by installing new, more helpful habits.
I use various techniques to help you but this is an issue that responds very well to hypnotherapy, in particular the ‘Rewind Technique’, usually in only one session.
How can I treat your Phobias?
I work in my peaceful therapy room, at my home in Norwich, Norfolk, where I hope you will feel safe and secure enough to be able to talk about issues that are distressing you, and feel at ease sharing your problems with me.
I use various techniques and approaches to help you, for example, counselling skills, NLP, deep relaxation, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, thought field therapy and the Human Givens. I prefer to use a solution-focused, rather than problem-focused approach, which builds on positive feelings rather than reinforcing negative ones. You will find more information about me and the techniques I use on other pages of my website.
