Freedom from your fears, night terrors and phobias with hypnotherapy

Our logical brain knows many things. For instance it knows that flying is the safest form of travel, it knows that lifts are completely safe, and that spiders can't cause us any harm.

Yet knowing that doesn't really help, because if you feel your heart pounding and your stomach churning, then for you it's a very real fear, and it's probably holding you back from enjoying your life as you want.

Common phobias include fear of lifts, frogs, going over bridges, dogs, snakes, spiders, needles, flying and heights. In the case of a severe phobia, you may have changed how you live your life and even may go to extreme lengths to avoid the thing you fear. Unfortunately, because of the way the brain works, avoidance only strengthens the phobia.

Phobias affect many people having a massive impact on their lives, and are usually caused by a single stressful or traumatic event, or can be learnt from a family member. A typical example of this would be a child seeing a parents fearful and over-reaction to a spider or mouse, this event then becomes locked into the child's brain becoming an automatic response for them. Yet if you were to ask the person how the phobia started, they generally can't remember, and comment that they've always had it.
