Fear of Heights

A fear of heights is a useful thing; it helps us to stay safe

What if I fall?

If you’re standing too close to the edge of a cliff, your natural fear of heights will kick in and your subconscious mind will make you move away from the edge to a safer place. This is your ‘fight or flight’ response working correctly to keep you safe.

If you’re climbing a ladder or walking across a footbridge, logically, you know that as long as you’re careful, you’ll be reasonably safe. However, sometimes your natural fear response becomes exaggerated and your subconscious mind sends messages to the rest of your body to respond to the situation as if you were facing a real imminent danger or threat. Because fear is a response which we learn through experience, the good news is that it can be unlearned.

Therapy for Fear of Heights

The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found Hypnotherapy helpful for addressing a fear of heights and talking with someone who is impartial and non-jugdmental can help you to overcome your fears. Working with your subconscious mind, relaxation and anxiety release techniques can be taught which will enable you to learn a new calmer way of responding and leave your fear of heights in the past.

Your First Session

At your first session, either at the clinic or online, we will talk about your situation in more detail, including your past experiences and goals, along with your role in the therapy process. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and then we will move on to the therapy part of your session which may involve a combination of therapies such as Hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP combined with other talking therapies as appropriate.
