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).

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

PUBLIC SPEAKING: “I cannot thank you enough for your help. I feel like a different person! The event went well and I actually added a lot to the occasion. By being calm and focused, I actually enjoyed the experience of presenting, and had many compliments for my work. Some people asked if I did it regularly and others thought I was a professional! I could have got you a lot of business as the majority of speakers were staggeringly ill prepared and nervous as anything. I now feel so happy, calm and confident and would relish the opportunity to do it again!” Heather G
