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.
Your initial consultation is an opportunity for us to meet, discuss your situation, answer any questions you may have and decide on the best therapy options for you. It is about building a good overview of your situation and what you would like to change. The appointment also includes your first therapy session, to familiarise you with therapy and begin your journey towards where you want to be.
