You are not alone! “Phobias are extremely common and around 10% of adults have some type of phobia.”

Many of us have situations or elements that make us uncomfortable. For some people this can be an overwhelming source of stress and may even lead us to avoiding situations. This can affect the way people normally live their lives.

Phobias can be split into specific and non-specific:

Specific phobias are where every other aspect of a person’s life is normal. People with a specific phobia have a one particular element that creates a fear response. e.g spiders, flying, and needles. We can help those with a specific problem by using  a combination of NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and Trance. These can be dealt with in 4 sessions.

Non-Specific phobias are where a fear response has crept further into a person’s life. for example, agoraphobia and emetophobia, and these phobias may require 8-10 sessions.

How the process works

  1. INITIAL CONSULTATION  Explanation of what is happening in our brain when we suffer from a specific phobia. The process of trance and its effects are explained.
  2. PRE-REWIND SESSION  A relaxing session of hypnosis. The familiarisation of the process and how it feels encourages the trance state and aids its efficiency.
  3. REWIND  In a safe and controlled hypnotic state, the memory of the traumatic event is explored. This process desensitises the event and vastly reduces the inappropriate response.
  4. REFRAME  This is when we introduce a new and appropriate response pattern. We are going to introduce a new calm and controlled frame of reference.

Call CATHY today and book in for your initial consultation and remove that unwanted phobia from your life.
