The list of phobias is almost endless and can stretch from the mundane (Spiders) to the seemingly absurd (the colour black). One can become phobic about literally almost anything in the world.
However, to suffer from any sort of phobia can quickly become an unpleasant and life-diminishing experience. The dictionary defines a phobia as "a fear, hatred or aversion-especially irrational". Because a phobia seems to be so irrational people will often live with their phobia "secretly" afraid others will find out.
It may well intrude into ones' life so much that things that would normally be taken for granted can become major obstacles to overcome and will be avoided altogether. This in turn can lead to avoidance of even more situations and also depression.
The amazing thing is that a lot of phobias are easily treated (many in as little as one session) and there is every possibility that even the most ingrained and difficult phobic response can be cleared with the appropriate treatment.
Hypnotherapy is a very powerful treatment for the removal of phobic responses. It also has the unquestionable advantage of the client being able to work on their problem in the safe environment of the consulting room. Most of the work is done in a state of relaxation, so minimising as much as possible any need for immediate exposure to the distressing situation.
We use tried and tested techniques that are safe and comfortable, all designed to help you get your life back to normal as quickly as possible. Why spend any more time than you need to in a state of apprehension and fear when you can get immediate relief and a lifetime of freedom from this otherwise distressing response?
