One of the most frequent reasons why people seek hypnosis is to help them deal with their fears and phobias. Many irrational fears and phobias can develop in childhood and can continue into adulthood.
Fears can be caused by a traumatic experience, but most prove to have originated in early, impressionable years. Through behavioral change and positive visualization hypnosis can help reduce these fears. Powerful positive suggestions can be given to the persons subconscious mind, reprogramming them to positively respond to situations that cause the fear. I also use the ‘Fast Phobia Cure’ an NLP technique, which can help a person’s phobia within a matter of minutes.
Most of us at one point suffered from one kind of fear or another, from fear of flying, fear of snakes to fear of dogs. Fears are common, for example, studies have shown that about four percent of the adult American population has arachnophobia – a fear of spiders.
