Is Hypnotherapy safe to treat Phobia’s?

We all have fears. We all have things that scare us and force us to act a certain way. For some, these fears can turn into something much more, causing us to retreat from the world and reducing our quality of life. For those battling with fears and phobias, getting help is vital. Hypnotherapy or hypnosis used with psychotherapy can safely and effectively treat fears and phobias.

What is hypnotherapy and psychotherapy?

Hypnotherapy can be the use of hypnosis within psychotherapy; or hypnosis can be used in specialised ways as a stand-alone modality to treat fears and phobias. Hypnosis is a completely natural state of focused attention which provides access to your subconscious mind. This access can be used to allow positive suggestions to be more readily accepted. It also can enable you and I to discover the root cause of the problem so that it can be resolved.

How can it help?

The first step is to establish whether the problem is a Specific Phobia or whether the fear is part of a broader anxiety issue. If it is Specific Phobia, it can be easily treated using techniques unique to hypnotherapy; and you can be free from the phobia in just a few sessions. If the fear is part of a broader anxiety issue, then hypnosis is used as a tool in a more comprehensive and deeper psychotherapy process. In both cases you will be able to be free from your fear. I help you to manage the symptoms of your fear using a range of hypnotic techniques, including self-hypnosis. I also help you to discover and resolve the root cause of the problem using hypnosis and psychotherapy.
