Fears and Phobias

Life-limited fears or phobias

Fear limits our ability to cope with life. It limits our potential for happiness. A phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of something. Sometimes this irrational fear is over something you can easily avoid. However, if you have a fear that is less avoidable, or is limiting your ability to enjoy life, you may want to find a solution.

Perhaps you urgently need some dental work but you have a fear of dentists or needles. Maybe you want to visit family in America but you’re scared of flying. Or you have a new job in central London, but you have a fear of using the Underground.


How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help fears and phobias?

There are over 2,000 named phobias, and hypnotherapy can help you with most of them if they have been a problem for you. Phobias and fears are created by negative templates or patterns stored in the subconscious mind. Maybe we learnt that fear response from others or we had an unpleasant experience which sparked the phobia.

Hypnotherapy works by helping you remove that unhelpful template and replacing it with a more helpful response, using simple Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques. You’ll be empowering yourself to cope beautifully in four sessions. Many of my clients find that their day-to-day stress levels reduce, their sleep improves and a number of other changes also occur whilst creating a more helpful response. Do contact me now to discuss your fear or phobia.

“I initially went for a fear of dogs, which Clare helped instantly with… but I was amazed to see the knock-on effects of the treatment, which helped me through the birth of my second child, to lose three stone in weight and have a general more positive outlook on life.” – Kate

“I came to Clare with a real phobia of flying and general anxiety and she changed so much for me. I sleep much better, I value life with a new found focus and I’ve booked a flight to Italy for a fantastic holiday – I can’t wait” – Ella
