Fears & Phobias
Therapy can help with a variety of fears and phobias
Fear is actually a useful thing. It helps to keep us safe and away from danger by prompting us to take action and this is known as the ‘fight or flight’ response.
Below are some of the common fears and phobias. If your fear isn’t listed here, get in touch to find out whether therapy sessions could help you too.
Fears & Phobias
Although fear can sometimes be useful, we can also have fears which are not always helpful to us. Fears of objects or situations which, realistically, we know are unlikely to harm us, yet they cause intense feelings of fear and can often lead to a panic attack, or if left to develop, sometimes a phobia. Heights, spiders, flying, injections, visiting the dentist and confined spaces are some of the common fears and phobias and there are many others too.
The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people find hypnotherapy helpful for addressing fears and phobias 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 develop a new calmer way of thinking and reacting, so that you can leave your 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’s 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.
