As the pandemic continues to be ever present in our lives, it may even have reached a point where fears and phobias may in fact be ruling our lives.
Quick links to what's on this fears and phobias page:
This pandemic has many repercussions beyond the actual virus and many of us have been living in a climate of fear for months now. In fact some people have been tested in ways we could never have imagined. Consequently in our therapy practice, as we emerge from lockdown, we are seeing more and more clients (both adults and children) who are now suffering from fears and phobias such as fear of loss, fear of being ill, lack of security, fear of the future etc.
Some of the fears and phobias we can help you with:
Fear of Needles/injections • Heights • Bridges
The future • Dying • Germs • Loss • Dogs • Dentists
Frogs • Flying • Blood • Buttons • Feathers
Hospitals and Doctors (commonly known as white coat syndrome)
Vomiting (Emetophobia) and many more ...
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
We are also able to successfully treat people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which has in many cases been worsened by the recent lockdown as a result of the increased anxiety we have all felt. We have much experience in OCD, which for many people stops them from enjoying life to the full and often creates social barriers. Our special techniques and treatments can help you to manage or overcome this condition.
We offer our clients a blend of hypnotherapy and other treatments to help with a range of fears & phobias. Our treatments include:
Hypnotherapy – which promotes a positive attitude and overwrites negative unwanted and outdated habits.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) – To help with emotional issues surrounding problems or issues.
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) – To create a focus on what you do want – eliminating what you don’t want.
HCBT (Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy) – This changes negative thoughts into positive ones.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) – This technique helps the brain to process information which has been caused by a sensitising event. In effect it is a comprehensive psychotherapeutic approach that reduces the emotional aspect of the memory.
These treatments can help you with challenging issues that are getting in the way of a normal life. Significantly, our methods can help you to change outdated and unwanted fears.
So how do we help you?
We provide you with an experienced, fully qualified, professional Clinical Therapist. You have a choice of either a male or female therapist. We will provide discrete and confidential therapy to help you to overcome your problems or issues very quickly.
During our one to one sessions with clients we will first take a full history of the fear or phobia. After that we will explain exactly how Hypnotherapy and other treatments will work for you. All clients are different and therefore our treatments are tailored to the individual. Following the initial consultation we will be able to tailor make a treatment plan just for you. We will also be able to tell you how many sessions you will need.
After the one to one sessions our clients will receive a Dropbox link for an MP3 download to their computer. We ask our clients to listen to these recordings between sessions. Listening to an MP3 download reinforces the suggestions, making them stronger and more lasting.
What to do next
If you would like help to overcome any fears or phobias we can help you via face to face sessions at our therapy rooms in Nottinghamshire or by Zoom video link Worldwide.
