Perhaps the largest category in a therapist's client list is made up of those who want to overcome fears and phobias. They even outnumber those who want to quit smoking. This is not so surprising, because more than one in ten of us will develop a simple phobia at some time or another - and quite a few will experience complex or traumatic phobias, possibly associated with PTSD.
Our hypnosis scripts devoted to how to overcome fears and phobias is an extensive resource for therapists, addressing debilitating and limiting anxieties of every kind.
Our approach is based on the principle that the trigger - the fear-inducing object or situation - must be detached from the emotional arousal associated with it. Hypnosis is the ideal way to facilitate this detachment, and to teach individuals more helpful and effective ways to respond when they encounter such situations again.
