Fears & Phobias

Are you scared of spiders… Does the sight of one leave you trembling and sweating…with overwhelming feelings of losing control. You know this is irrational, but somehow you cannot control your fear.

Does the thought of planning your next holiday fill you with so much dread because you have to get on that flight… Does your heart pound, leave you sweating and your throat feel like it is closing in on you.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is one of the longest words in the dictionary — and, in an ironic twist, is the name for a fear of long words. Sesquipedalophobia is another term for the phobia.

If you have a phobia that is interfering with your normal social or working life then it’s time to get help.

Hypnosis & NLP has been found to be very effective in helping people of any age and gender overcome even the most ingrained phobias, including, but not limited to phobias like; fear of spiders, snakes, heights, public speaking, death and flying.

At the heart of a phobia there is anxiety. There are three main types of phobias:

  • Specific phobia, a persistent, irrational fear of particular objects or situations, such as snakes, spiders, heights, blood, flying, or elevators.
  • Social phobia, or social anxiety disorder, a persistent, irrational fear of situations where you may be scrutinized or criticized or embarrassed by other people.
  • Agorophobia, a fear of leaving home, being alone, or being away from home in a situation where you feel trapped or helpless.

Many people find it hard to believe that they can overcome their fears so easily. If you have a phobia that you are ready to get rid of now, contact me to discuss how I can help you.

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind; people are often surprised that they hear every word and could get up and walk out of the room at any moment. Unless you enter a deeper state, you may not seem any different, just very relaxed. Most people are surprised at just how relaxing it is.

Hypnosis  is very safe and depends upon your willingness to be receptive and responsive to suggestions given to you. Hypnosis will not make you do anything that you do not want to do. You are always in control. Hypnosis is a means of enhancing mind and body control.


During hypnosis you are in complete control of what you choose to reveal or conceal. Therefore you will not reveal to the hypnotherapist any secrets that you do not wish to share.

Many phobias exist in our subconscious and are learned responses. This makes them particularly vulnerable to hypnotherapyHypnotherapy can help you unlearn the fear response, build up your exposure to the phobia and in time ease the associated anxiety.
