Fears & Phobias

Fear is an emotion induced by perceived danger or threat, which causes physiological changes and ultimately behavioral changes, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events. Fear in human beings may occur in response to a certain stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future threat perceived as a risk to oneself.

A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object. 

Types of fears & phobias

There are many different forms of fears and phobias that you can experience, such as:

  • Fear of flying

  • Fear of heights

  • Fear of spiders, bees, snakes, insects

  • Fear of confined spaces

  • Fear of public speaking and performing 

At some stage in our lives we all experience some form of fear. We can even become scared of expressing feelings and emotions. Fears & phobias can make life debilitating in some instances. It can stop you from doing things that you want to do, like prevent you from flying abroad, can stop you from going out and living the life you truly want to. 

How can I help?

The good news is that you were not born with these issues, what you are experiencing now is from conditioning that you have experienced at whatever stage in your life. All behaviours are learnt and the great news is this means they can be unlearnt and new behaviours can be made. 


I use a selection of techniques including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Clinical Hypnotherapist and life coaching. These techniques work directly with the sub-conscious mind so are very effective at behavioural changes. 

During hypnosis your mind is so relaxed that your subconscious is able to receive and welcome suggestions and changes to update the way in which you perceive yourself; subsequently being able to correct any negative thought patterns and beliefs you may have. 

As a result you will be able to begin to challenge these old belief systems to create new more positive affirmations about yourself.
