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

EXAM CONFIDENCE: "I thought you'd like to know that the exam went swimmingly yesterday! The session with you not only kept me calm before the exam but on the day itself no butterflies at all. The ability to remain calm facing the prospect of the exam made my revision much more efficient and focused as my mind was able to take on board and retain the information."
