Hypnotherapy for Fears & Phobias
Overcome Fears with Hypnotherapy in Fife
Most people have an irrational fear or two. Perhaps the thought of needles makes your knees go wobbly, heights may make you feel dizzy, and mice may leave you jumping for the nearest chair. For the most part, these fears are minimal, and have no long term effect on day-to-day living. For some however, the effects of such fears can be devastating, causing tremendous anxiety and preventing the individual from living a happy existence.
If a fear has become irrational and disabling, it has become a phobia. A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. Common phobias and fears include closed-in places, heights, motorway driving, flying, snakes, needles, the list goes on…
Phobias are irrational and unfounded fears which simply bypass your conscious rational thinking process, leading to panic and/or avoidance of the feared thing. They can happen to anyone and have a crippling effect on our freedom to enjoy life to the full. They say nothing about your strength of character, your intelligence or your willpower.
Rationalising, or trying to remove the fear through logic alone, often makes the problem even worse. It’s almost as if you are fighting with yourself and, although the solution feels as if it should be very simple, it rarely is.
Why is it Hard to Remove Fears Logically?
Phobias are by definition not rational and so can’t possibly be removed through logical thinking alone. You need to be able to ‘feel’ safe without the phobia. After all, phobias really are just a protection mechanism and, strange as it may seem, are actually there to help you!
Because these fears exist in the subconscious part of our minds, hypnosis can be an effective way of overcoming them. Often just a few sessions of hypnotherapy can remove phobias or unhelpful fears permanently, leaving you free to enjoy your life to its fullest.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help Overcome Fears
Hypnotherapy can help you get control of your fear and start enjoying your life again. During Hypnotherapy, you can learn to overcome your fears by adjusting the way that they affect you and diminishing the fear response. I will teach you how to relax and release tension from your body so that you are able to put yourself in a less anxious state and use this relaxed state for future situations.
Using both hypnosis and NLP techniques I will help you to explore and eliminate the root cause of your fears. Through creating a permanent change in your emotional responses, hypnotherapy will help to rid you of your irrational fears and thought patterns. In a hypnotherapy session, the body and mind are relaxed enabling irrational thoughts about a situation or issue to be replaced with logical thinking and a healthier emotional response.
- You will learn to be calmer and deal with your own fear in a controlled and rational way.
- You will effectively learn to desensitise those fears and replace them with more natural and rational feelings.
- Furthermore, you will be able to imagine yourself engaging in situations in a calm and comfortable way
