Phobias hypnotherapy*

The Mindset Clinic in Watford, Hertfordshire uses hypnosis and NLP to treat phobias.

A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. It is an extreme form of fear or anxiety, triggered by a particular situation or object. Whether you are afraid of flying, spiders, public speaking, dogs, lifts, water, clowns, heights  or anything else The Mindset Clinic can help you.

Phobias are very common. Having a phobia doesn’t mean you’re crazy despite what other people may think! It’s also helpful to know that phobias are highly treatable. It is possible to overcome anxiety and fear, no matter how out of control it feels.*

Types of Phobias

There are many different types of phobias. Some people have spider phobia, dentist phobia, needle phobia, fear of enclosed spaces or fear of being sick. The list of possible phobias tends to fall into four areas; Medical, Social, Animal and Environmental. However, as far as treatment of phobias is concerned it doesn’t matter which type you have.

Is your fear holding you back?

For some people the fear they experience can be debilitating. It can prevent them from getting on with their everyday life or cause anxiety, heart palpations or to break out in a sweat. It can cause severe emotional outbursts such as anger or tears.

Perhaps when faced with your fear it has caused you to get angry or even violent? Or maybe you have taken great lengths to avoid whatever you are afraid of? Avoidance doesn’t really help. If you are afraid of heights and you can’t accept a job in tall building because you are afraid of the lift or the view from your office then you can be missing out potentially on promotions and career opportunities.

Maybe you have children and you are worried that your fear will be passed onto them?  There is a high likelihood that your children could be influenced by your response to fear. It is thought that we only have two fears when we are born, that of loud noises and the fear of falling, the rest is learnt behaviour.

Are you fed up with feeling restricted by your particular phobia? Maybe you are embarrassed by the way you react when faced with your fear and are starting to think it’s time now to do something about it?

Effective Phobia Treatment

Well the good news is that you have come to the right place. The Mindset Clinic specialises in the treatment of anxiety and a phobias are an extreme form of anxiety, they are just triggered by something in particular. So whatever the specific fear or phobia it doesn’t really effect the approach to treatment.

We understand how restricting and upsetting phobias can be. We also understand that the fear you experience can seem irrational to others who may get frustrated with you. But because the fear is generated within the unconscious part of your brain you are unable to control the reaction you experience.

But how would you like to be in control? How would it be to feel calm and unbothered by whatever it is that is causing you to feel fearful? Take a moment to imagine what your life could be like once you have lost your phobia for good. What would you be able to do if you were free of your fears?

How does Hypnotherapy and NLP help overcome Phobias?*

The Mindset Clinic uses hypnosis and NLP techniques to access the unconscious part of the mind where the source of the phobia is stored to reprocess the anxious thoughts with more positive emotions such as feeling confident and calm instead.

A phobia is a learned response to a particular trigger so we can teach your brain to break the circuitry and create a more helpful response to the trigger instead. We also:

  • Use techniques that very quickly desensitise you to the particular stimulus that is the triggering your reaction.
  • Work with you to find the initial cause so that you are unlikely to experience re-traumatisation.
  • Deal with both the cause and the effect.
  • Make the session fun so that you are relaxed and enjoy the experience.
