Phobias, Fear, and Panic

I am a qualified hypno-psychotherapist and I specialise in the treatment of anxiety related conditions such as fear, phobias and panic attacks.

Hypnotherapy is effective in reducing, releasing and overcoming phobias and anxiety issues, whilst giving you techniques to manage better every day.

Fear

Fear is a natural response to threat and it is part of our primal survival instinct. Early humans survived by knowing to be afraid of dangerous predators, but for modern humans with threats to jobs, finances, relationships etc being less immediate or physical, we often have plenty of time to imagine the worse case scenario. Unfortuantely, our unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference betweeen a real or imagined threat and the physical effects are exactly the same.

Fear can sometimes become attached or anchored to anything that reminds us of the negative experience. Frightening experiences in the past (e.g. dog attacks) can become fears for life if not defused.

Hypnotherapy is helpful in resolving traumatic experiences and overcoming  fears.

Phobias

A phobia is an irrational fear where an intense fear response has become attached to a seemingly  unrelated trigger where there is no real threat present, be it a situation or an object.

A phobia is an extreme fear that may seem irrational to others but is very real to the person who has the fear. In extreme situations a phobia may have a negative impact upon an individual and their family. Counselling can help you explore why you have the phobia and hypnotherapy is help you  take control of your feelings and reactions to the fear by removing triggers to the fear response.

Panic & Anxiety Attacks

Anxiety attacks show as feelings of fear and apprehension, some people may feel their heart racing or feel short of breath, but it’s very short lived, and when the stressor goes away, so does the anxiety attack.

Panic attack can seem to come out of nowhere and for no reason with feelings of being out of control, and even fearing for onces life. It is unprovoked and unpredictable. Some people develop a seperate fear of the possibility of having a panic attack, especially in public.
