Looking for Help with Phobias?Hypnotherapy & Coaching Sessions in Stroud (Nailsworth), Bristol or Online
Experiencing a level of apprehension before doing something in some circumstances is very healthy. After all, fear is a necessary part of self-preservation.
Acting as a warning system, fear and anxiety make us aware of a threat or danger to our life or well-being. Indeed, for the person suffering from a phobia, their fear is a very real thing, which may in the moment feel uncontrollable.
However, the warning is not real, there is no actual impending danger, and this is what hypnotherapy for phobia can help with; to learn a measured and more desirable response pattern to things that are standing in your way.
Three stages of progress
The first part introduces you to the process of hypnosis and practicing positive habits, which include relaxation.
Next, we continue to a process called ‘Rewind’. This is where we help you to re-play an instance of the phobic episode in your mind, whilst you are in an extremely relaxed and detached state. The purpose of this is to activate the ‘problem area’, and repeat this imagined exposure until the mind is no longer sensitive to it. You could say that the mind gets bored of the issue.
