Treating Phobias

Phobias are an excessive or irrational fear of a specific object, situation or activity. Unlike fear, which is a natural response to real danger, phobias can significantly impact a person’s life and prevent them from reaching their full potential. They can be debilitating and can feel out of control, like trying to drive a car with the handbrake on.

Phobias can be difficult to overcome through conscious reasoning. For example, understanding that flying is the safest mode of transportation may not alleviate a fear of flying.

Some phobias are understandable, others seem to other as silly, but whether it is a fear of spiders, fear of flying or fear of shirt buttons, they all can be debilitating for the sufferer.

How can hypnosis help?

Hypnosis is nothing new. It has been used for centuries under different names. It is being used by millions of people worldwide to address issues varying from smoking, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD, pain management, removing phobias and many more psychological conditions.

Hypnosis can be an effective tool in addressing phobias. It uses the power of imagination and suggestion to help identify and address the root cause of the problem. The hypnotherapist works with the client under trance to alleviate negative feelings, change reactions, and create new strategies for living a life free from fear.

Why does it work so well?

Hypnosis is a safe and relaxing approach that does not rely on medication and does not have negative side effects. It empowers the client to deal with their fear and makes changes at a subconscious and emotional level, resulting in fast and long-lasting changes. In most cases, just one session is enough.

Conquering your fears might require some specialist help, but it doesn’t have to be hard or painful. Most people enjoy the process and benefit from the relaxing positive side-effects.

Here is the feedback of some of my clients:

Fear of travelling:

“Hi Christophe. Just letting you know I managed to go to Tenerife for the stag do. I had a great time so thank you so much for all your help, I couldn’t have done without the help you gave me. It’s something that has changed my way of thinking about things for ever now.
I never thought I’d ever step foot on a plane again and out of all the holidays I’ve been on, that’s the furthest I’ve travelled!! Thank you again”


“I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment I walked in the door. After my session I came home and thought ok, let’s see what happens. Well I am truly amazed, I have NOT had any anxiety attacks since, this is such a strange feeling I do things and it’s after I have done it I realise that it didn’t bother me, I feel so much calmer and feel so unafraid of places that have been a nightmare for me for years. I really can’t express how good it feels. Thank you so much.”

Fear of blood:

“I did it! Finally got the form from the doctor, and went down to the hospital this morning, a very kind nurse took a blood sample from me, it was a lot less painful and much quicker than the tooth repair I had last week! And hopefully next time it will be just as easy.
Thank you so much for your help.”
