Hypnotherapy for fear and phobias.

Hypnotherapy can be a very effective tool in the treatment of fear related conditions. Fear is a natural emotion, designed to protect us from danger, but when this is attached to illogical or irrational triggers, the effect can be very disruptive to your life.

It is important that we remember what makes us frightened, since if we were still living in the wild, our immediate response to any sign of danger could be the difference between life and death (standing around trying to remember if you should find a lion a threat would not be a good idea.)

Any memory embedded with fear is recalled faster and with more strength to ensure we react to the trigger and if these memories are created as a small child, a child will react to how they ‘feel’ without question. For example, a child may not like the look of a clown, if that clown then comes up to the child and shouts BOO!!, causing them to jump, you have the seeding of a clown phobia. The child will now feel fear every time they see a clown and this neurological pathway becomes embedded  The adult realises that the fear is irrational, but since this response has grown over time in the subconscious mind, they are not able to simply stop the immediate fear reaction.

Hypnosis works by allowing the mind to reevaluate the response on all levels, freeing the person from the conditioned response and breaking the pattern of behaviour.

This process is successful for any fear related condition, such as fear embedded through watching a scary film at a young age,  fear related panic attacks, or any phobic response.

The treatment takes around 4 sessions depending on the individual and appointments are available week days, evenings and weekends.
