Hypnotherapy and fears & phobias

Phobias are extreme fears. They're irrational and you don’t feel the slightest in control of the feeling of panic and dread that takes hold of you when confronted with or even imagining the situation or object of your phobia.

Needless to say, this can be debilitating and dent your self-confidence. You may make elaborate plans to avoid your fear, wasting precious time and energy, and getting annoyed with yourself in the process. Your rational mind knows that this is ridiculous but you can’t seem to help yourself.

The fear often starts when you anticipate what's going to happen. Whatever it is that you are frightened of hasn’t happened yet, but your mind is already imagining, your body tenses, your heart races, you may start sweating and feel faint and nauseous.

How Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy can stop your fears and phobias

CB hypnotherapy can help you free yourself from your fear or phobia, the treatment used is effective and has been used for many years to cure people.

 

We work together installing coping mechanisms of intense mental and physical relaxation and then use a treatment called hypnotic desensitization.

 

Within the safe and understanding context of the therapy session and in hypnosis, you gradually face and overcome your fear while remaining intensely relaxed.

 

3 - 6 sessions are all that is generally needed to free yourself from your fear.

Just imagine the freedom self-confidence you gain by overcoming the situation or object that made you afraid!

What my clients say

Injection and vein phobia

I was initially sceptical – particularly because it all took place remotely. But Morag was amazing! She quickly put me at ease, listened carefully to my problems, asked intelligent questions & gently but firmly pushed me to think more logically about my fears. The practise recordings in between sessions – the homework – were great! Not only have I now overcome my phobia, but I’m sleeping much better & I feel generally more relaxed & confident. So a big thank you!
