Fears and Phobias

One of the most common uses of hypnosis is to treat fears and phobias. 

Whether it’s a fear of spiders, heights, crowds, flying, thunderstorms, public speaking or anything else at all… Hypnotherapy can help you overcome your fears.

Even when we rationally know that there is nothing to fear, we can be unable to overcome our fears and phobic responses to situations. These occurrences are more widespread than you might know.

The great news is that there is relief available through hypnotherapy that will change your experience of life.

The reason hypnotherapy is so successful in treating fears, phobias and trauma is that with these conditions, the mind goes into overdrive, in a negative way. In other words, the person is hypnotising themselves without realising it, by focusing deeply on the thing they are fearful of. Hypnotherapy is using the state of hypnosis, which is a state of abstraction and narrowed focus of attention, and directing the mind to go into overdrive, in a positive way.

When we experience a traumatic event we naturally focus very deeply, becoming highly suggestible, and then we unconsciously learn to be terrified of any post-hypnotic trigger in the future that reminds us, even vaguely, of the original incident.

The Rewind Technique

I use the Rewind Technique, which is a tried and tested approach to treating PTSD and phobias. For many years, severe anxiety-based conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or phobias were considered treatable only through long, painful exposure therapy, and in some cases, not at all.

Now, thankfully, we have access to comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce and even remove, traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly, without you having to re-live the trauma. The Rewind does not need you to experience your fear or phobia or traumatic incident(s) again. Many people with trauma, fears or phobias have been treated using approaches which drag them back through the experience again; a highly unpleasant thing to have to do.

This does not happen with The Rewind and I do not in fact even need to know the details of what happened to you.
