A fear of heights can be a useful thing.
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.
Fear of Heights
If you’re climbing a ladder or maybe walking across a footbridge, realistically, you know that as long as you’re careful, you’ll be reasonably safe. However, sometimes your natural fear response can become 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.
The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found hypnotherapy helpful for addressing fear of heights and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental 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 the fear in the past.
What to expect
The first step is to book an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your situation in more detail, as well as answering any questions you may have and deciding on the best options for you. The appointment usually takes around 60 to 90 minutes and includes your first therapy session. Further sessions are 50 minutes and are usually booked between 1 to 3 weeks apart, depending on your situation.

Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
