Phobias and Fears

Fear is a healthy, vital response to legitimate threat.  When we learn to fear situations that are far from life threatening, for example, fear of house spiders, fear of public transport, social anxiety etc., we tend to avoid or let someone else take control therefore reinforcing the response.  The language we use in describing our experiences or imagined experiences is of vital importance.  For example, a person who say they feel 'sheer terror' at the prospect of forgetting their words in a presentation or speech could perhaps be persuaded to reframe that description to 'really concerned'.
Clinical Hypnotherapy can help with many phobias and fears by desensitisation of the situation in a safe and controlled way alongside bringing personal strengths and resources further into awareness.
