Phobias

"Between the stimulus and the response there is a pause, and in that pause lies our power and our freedom" Viktor Frankl

Kingston Hypnotherapy's treatment for phobias is one of the most requested interventions. The most common phobias are fear of spiders and fear of flying and hypnotherapy can be very effective in reprogramming the subconscious automatic fear response. 

Phobias often start with a childhood misunderstanding when the child overestimates the danger associated with a particular situation eg. their mother screaming at a daddy longlegs. They are likely to conclude that the insect is dangerous.

Phobias such as agoraphobia or social phobia may need a deeper look at underlying issues to resolve them (see Anxiety page).

Techniques used:

Updating the part of the subconscious that is producing this exaggerated response.

Regression where appropriate to the time when the phobia was formed.

Relaxation, visualisation and EMDR computer software when needed to help desensitise the response.

       

 

 

 

Dental Phobias:  I work with local dentist, Dr Haj Barlow, who is particularly good with anxious patients. http://www.brunswickdentalrooms.co.uk/nervous-patients.html

CHRONIC PAIN "I've had chronic pain in my lower spine for thirty years which has often been debilitating and greatly affected my life. No treatment of any sort has ever helped even a tiny bit. But after just one session of hypnotherapy with Nicola it was gone. Its still hard to believe, but it has.

It would appear that the pain signals were being sent long after my body had recovered from the incident(s) which first caused them - they were no longer necessary and Nicola was able to work with my subconscious to switch them off. I would absolutely recommend Nicola to anyone with a similar seemingly untreatable pain - the change was instant and total. " Tim G (1 session)
