  1. Does Hypnosis help to end phobias that you have had for years?

    Posted on

    As a hypnotherapist, I have had the opportunity to help countless individuals overcome their fears and phobias. Whether it be a fear of flying, public speaking, or even a fear of spiders, hypnotherapy can be a highly effective treatment option.

    First, it's important to understand that fears and phobias are often rooted in past experiences or traumatic events. These experiences can create a psychological association between the feared object or situation and a feeling of danger or anxiety. For example, an individual who had a traumatic experience on a plane may develop a fear of flying.

    Hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious mind, where these associations are stored. By utilizing techniques such as visualization and suggestion, a hypnotherapist can help an individual to change their perception of the feared object or situation. Instead of viewing it as dangerous or anxiety-provoking, the individual can learn to associate it with feelings of calm and safety.

    One of the key benefits of hypnotherapy for fears and phobias is that it can be done in a relatively short period of time. Unlike traditional talk therapy, which can take months to address a fear or phobia, hypnotherapy can often provide significant improvement in just a few sessions.

    Another benefit of hypnotherapy is that it is a non-invasive and safe treatment option. Unlike exposure therapy, which may involve gradually exposing an individual to the feared object or situation, hypnotherapy does not require any physical contact with the feared object or situation. This can be particularly helpful for individuals who have extreme or debilitating fears or phobias.

    Hypnotherapy can help an individual to understand the origins of their fear or phobia and to release the emotional charge associated with the traumatic event.

    During hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist guides the client into a relaxed, trance-like state. This state is characterized by heightened suggestibility and an increased ability to focus on the present moment. Once the client is in this state, the hypnotherapist can begin to introduce positive suggestions and visualization exercises designed to help the client overcome their fear or phobia.

    In addition to helping individuals to overcome their specific fears or phobias, hypnotherapy can also improve overall mental and emotional well-being. By addressing the underlying psychological issues that contribute to fears and phobias, hypnotherapy can help individuals to develop greater self-confidence, self-esteem, and resilience.

    Hypnotherapy is often recommended to be combined with other therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or EFT and EMDR for better results. All of these are techniques that I have a great deal of experience with.

    In conclusion, hypnotherapy is a highly effective and efficient treatment option for individuals who are looking to overcome their fears and phobias. By utilizing techniques such as visualization and suggestion, a hypnotherapist can help an individual to change their perception of the feared object or situation and replace it with feelings of calm and safety. It's a non-invasive and safe treatment option that can provide significant improvement in a short period of time, and can also improve overall mental and emotional well-being.

    Are you worried about having an injection for the Coronavirus Vaccine? Perhaps a fear of needles has been something you have been able to live with for a long time. Now, though you need to have an injection and are looking for a way to make it easier.

    As the Covid mass vaccination programme rolls out throughout the UK more and more people are breathing a sigh of relief. The injection of Coronavirus vaccine is helping people to see that even if this is not the end, it’s at least the beginning of the end.

    Millions of people have already had their injections and seeing the pictures on TV of people being vaccinated against Covid it is easy to think that if you have a fear of needles you are alone.

    So many people aren’t worried about the safety of the vaccine, after all it has been fully tested and approved, they’re frightened of the needle it comes in. It may have been easy to live for years without any problems from this, especially if you declined the yearly flu vaccine, but right now things are different and it is in the interests of you, your family and the whole world to get that injection of Covid Vaccine when you are offered the chance.

    This short video explains all about fears and phobias and the good news about how you can let them go forever....

    Are Adults or Children the most scared of needles? and How does it happen?

    Being scared of injections and needles is fairly common in children, and generally with more experience of how they benefit us, this slowly decreases with age.

    It’s generally thought that about 10 per cent of people have some level of anxiety about getting a blood test or receiving an injection. Even so most people carry on through this and they have that needle in their arm to help them overcome whatever the injection is designed to do.

    What do you call a fear of needles and injections?

    However for many this fear can be much worse. It is known as Trypanophobia, or a severe phobia of injections. When things are this bad they can have a very debilitating impact on the sufferers’ life.

    Sometimes people may be so fearful of needles that they faint, which further increases their fear of future events. There are some people who have a medical condition which can cause this, but that doesn’t affect so many people. That fainting can come from the fear and the physical reaction it causes.

    We tend to find that often one bad experience colours our feelings around needles and how we react to injections. Often this is a single bad experience in childhood, perhaps during routine vaccinations or a dental appointment. If the dentist said to you: "just a little scratch" you are likely to be more relaxed than if they said: "this is going to hurt!"

    Can our parents teach us a fear of injections?

    Yes! Often and without even realising it the reaction of your parents if something didn’t go as planned can cause you to be the one with the fear.  This can mean a lack of sleep through worry even days before you are due to have an injection. As children we can pick up on worries that our parents have and they do not always even realise how much we see and hear.

    I often see people who now have their own children and want to make sure that they do not pass on their own fear to their children in the future.

    Whatever your reasons, it is never too late to finally deal with your fear of injections. The issues surrounding Covid and how the Coronavirus has affected the entire world have only brought this into sharper focus for everyone.

    If you would like to let go of your fear of injections then simply drop me a line and I can tell you more about how I can help you to relax and let go of that feeling on a permanent basis.

    Can I have Hypnosis for needle fears online?

    Yes of course. I have been working online with Skype for nearly ten years so I have lots of experience in helping people with fears and phobias to overcome them. Whilst Zoom therapy is now becoming more and more known, you can rest assured that this isn’t something I only started during the covid pandemic.

    Remember, any fear is something that we learn. If you learn it you can unlearn it!
