Text Box: Hypnotherapy treatment for Phobias and Fears

Don’t  accept simple ways such as just hypnotic suggestion or the NLP fast phobia cure as ways to conquer fears and phobias. These methods whilst appearing sometimes to have some initial success, do not appear to be effective in the longer term.
We have seen many patients who saw other therapist’s first and were disappointed with the results.
At Release Hypnotherapy we believe the only way to truly conquer fears and phobias is to find the original cause or trigger.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural therapy that can be extremely beneficial in areas such as fears and phobias. We have extensive experience in this area with the majority of people coming to us recommended by former patients or local GP's. Whilst there are no cast iron guarantees, the success rate is extremely high.   

Don’t wait, call today and take those first steps in taking control to live a happier more fulfilling life.

What is a Phobia? 
A phobia is an abnormal fear invoked by a particular object or situation where the fear:
Is out of proportion to the demands of a situation (ie. Is irrational). 
Cannot be explained away.
Is beyond voluntary control.
Leads to avoidance of the feared situation.
There are numerous fears and phobia’s some common and some very rare. Common phobias and fears include: Fear of public speaking, claustrophobia, agoraphobia, social phobia, animal or creature phobias, fear of death and also situation fears such as of flying, driving, heights etc.

Causes of Phobias
There are man causes of phobias, however they do tend to fall into five broad reasons.
The phobia may be a product of severe stress.

The Phobia may result from a series of experiences occurring over a period of years, which have built up into an excessive anxiety.

The phobia may be the product of a fear of fear (or panic in a specific situation).

The phobia may be learned from another person.

The phobia may be the result of a severe past trauma.

The progressive development of a Phobia
First stage: The fear only appears in the actual presence of the traumatising stimulus, e.g. When faced with a spider.
Second stage: The fear also occurs prior to the situation, for example becoming fearful when approaching an area where they may be a spider present.
Third stage: The phobic response occurs in neutral situations such as looking at a picture of a spider in a book.

Very low level and simple fears and phobias can usually be treated with a combination of direct hypnotic suggestion and hypnodensensitisation, possibly augmented with NLP techniques such as the ‘Fast Phobia Cure’ and ‘Forward Rehearsal’ scenarios. In our experience the NLP Fast Phobia Cure alone rarely cures a fear or phobia in the longer term.

Hypnotherapy can be used alongside behavioural or cognitive approaches which views the presenting symptom(s) as a maladapted habit which is capable of being ‘unlearned’.

The most successful hypnotherapy treatment for fears and phobias (in our opinion) is a combination of the above approaches in conjunction with hypno psychodynamic or analytical work. This approach seeks to establish a link between the phobic symptom(s) and some early unresolved conflict or trauma. Resolving this issue and then augmenting the treatment with direct suggestion and NLP.
