Overcoming Fears and Phobias Atwell | Does Hypnosis Really Work?

Overcoming Fears & Phobias

Are you letting fears or phobias stop you from enjoying your life fully? Perhaps you don’t travel because you’re afraid of flying, can’t give blood because you’re scared of needles or have never tried something new because you have a fear of failure. Hypnosis therapy in Atwell by Trina Blum can help.

Most of us have or have had a fear at one time or another during our life, but when it gets in the way of doing something you’d like to do, or becomes a phobia, then it goes from being an inconvenience to being a real problem. Hypnosis and the other techniques I’m trained in can be used to address these challenges and make life a lot easier for you and those around you who may be inconvenienced by the fear or phobia YOU have.

A teenage client, brought by her mum who was still having to drive her around everywhere, came to me with general anxiety and a fear of driving. The client had her learners permit but would not drive and was therefore not getting her hours up to be able to take her practical driving test. This client came to me for two sessions of hypnosis, and as a result, her fear of driving was eliminated and she had the confidence to complete her required driving hours.

What’s the difference between a fear and phobia? Fear can be a short-term reaction to a situation as a result of our fight or flight instinct, whereas a phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.

Fears and Phobias can include numerous situations or things such as these:

  • Heights
  • Needles
  • Snakes
  • Various insects including spiders
  • Failure
  • Flying
  • Success or rejection
  • Thunderstorms
  • Planes and cars
  • Vomiting
  • The dark
  • Germs
  • Panic attacks
  • Dogs

In our world today there are many fears and phobias; too many to list them all. If your life is being ruled by these or others, and you’d like to free yourself from them, then book with me now. Let’s get started on reducing or eliminating the fears that have been holding you back!
