Phobias & Fears

For as long as people have experienced the emotion of fear there have been phobias. Phobias create an intense and uncontrollable fear that produces physical and frequently, hysterical symptoms which overwhelm the sufferer.  Faced with these imagined or exaggerated threats, victims will go to great lengths to avoid the feared situations. This can severely disrupt their lives and have an adverse effect on their families.


The hypnotherapy treatment for phobias is gentle and does not force you to face your fear until you are ready and we aim only for the goals you set. The average treatment takes between two and four sessions, although it can take longer, and has been known to work in a single session. We primarily use techniques based in the behavioural school of psychotherapy, we also employ techniques from Neurolinguistics Programming (NLP) in addition to traditional hypnotherapeutic methods.

Hypnotherapy can help treat the following phobias:

  • Fear of flying

  • Fear of dentists

  • Fear of needles/ injections

  • Fear of heights

  • Fear of being sick (emetophobia)

  • Fear of spiders

  • Fear of the dark

  • Agoraphobia

  • Claustrophobia

  • Social phobia

  • Fear of blushing

  • Fear of birds, bees or wasps

  • Fear of cats, dogs or snakes

  • Fear of driving or motorways
