We often think of phobias of being scared of spiders, heights or maybe flying. But anyone can develop a phobia to more or less anything, buttons, needles, failure, public speaking, vomiting.
They say everyone’s phobia is funny, except our own and they can sound funny but they’re often anything but. Phobias are different from ordinary fears in that they cause distressing symptoms and can be embarrassing, frightening, demoralising and limit your life.
Tackling a phobia can make all the difference.
Imagine if you overcome a fear of flying, for example. Instead of a drunken, drug fuelled, anxiety ridden, seemingly endless journey you could have a relaxed flight to a wonderful holiday. Or instead of vomiting in the toilet you could stand up and do that presentation at work that you know will get your that bonus or promotion.
How do you overcome phobias or fears?
Phobias and irrational fears are learned responses to something in your past, that you may or may not remember learning – that’s why my combination of Coaching, NLP and Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help you unlearn past, unhelpful lessons – for good. Phobias can have their basis in anxiety or past trauma, but it doesn’t matter where it originated, we can tackle it and free you of it forever.
Here’s what Danny Clark had to say about working with me:
I was becoming increasingly affected by vertigo, especially on chair lifts when skiing, but also climbing quite low step ladders and even on chairs to change a bulb. In only two sessions of cognitive hypnotherapy, Hazel helped me completely change how I feel about heights and allowed me to analyse exactly how I felt in certain situations. She then prepared a 10-minute personalised recording for me to listen to each day – which I did for about 10 days before going on a skiing holiday at Christmas. Result – not one feeling of vertigo – even on the famous Peak to Peak gondola in Whistler and I have been able to climb ladders and walk around a build site on scaffolding without even thinking of the height. I can thoroughly recommend Hazel to anyone who has something similar – it really does seem to have helped me.
