ONLINE HYPNOTHERAPY FOR FEARS AND PHOBIAS
The NHS estimates that around 10 million people in the UK suffer from phobias or fears. Yes, you read that figure correctly – TEN MILLION. A phobia isn’t just a dislike of something – it takes over your life when the object of fear arises. It can cause an increased in heart rate, breathing difficulties, tightness of the chest and an inability to think rationally. This is the ‘fight, flight, freeze’ mechanism going into overdrive. Some people pass out through the extreme reaction to their phobia. It can control your life, changing behaviours, decisions and lifestyle – all in order to avoid the object of your fear.
And there are many more fears and phobias too – far too many to list in a short webpage like this. But I have helped people with many different phobias in the past. Help with fears and phobias comes in many different shapes and forms.
But looking at the root cause of the fear or phobia can be the most effective way of managing this. And online hypnotherapy is proven to help people manage their fears and move on with their life.
Some of the most common phobias include -
Fear of flying (Aviophobia)
Fear of Spiders (Arachnophobia)
Fear of heights (Acrophobia)
A fear of snakes (Ophidiophobia)
Fear of needles (Trypanophobia)
Getting Help for Fears and Phobias
Fears and phobias are classed as either simple or complex. Simple phobias are about specific situations, activities, objects or animals, such as a fear of dogs or a fear of dentists. Complex phobias are about more deep-rooted fears. Think about agoraphobia, which is a fear of being in a situation where escape might be difficult. This can affect your life in multiple ways. You may fear travelling on public transport, visiting a shopping centre or sometimes even leaving home at all. There is an underlying issue that causes all of these issues.
But you don’t have to accept a life of fears and phobias. When you overcome your fears and phobias, you get to live a life where…
You don’t have to plan your whole life around fear.
Situations don’t phase you.
You don’t feel like you can’t go out or do something unplanned.
You feel better about yourself and more relaxed in the world.
If you’re looking for a life without fears and phobias, then online hypnotherapy could be the answer. You can see the results in a very short space of time, allowing you some freedom in your life. But help with fears and phobias is more effective and long-lasting when you spend more time getting to the root cause.

A Client Success Story in Overcoming a Phobia
Since being a child I have been frightened of spiders. So much so that if I saw a spider or even a picture of one I would have to say, 'Don't dream about spiders, don't dream about spiders. 'I signed up to Clinical hypnotherapy online hoping to 'cure' me of this fear. Well! It did! And it wasn't at all threatening. I talked to the therapist in the first session and he put me completely at ease. The relaxation bit, the hypnotherapy was great. I was able to totally relax. The nights I had a session I slept like a baby! (I often have difficulty getting a good night's sleep). After a few sessions, with Brendan's help, I have rid myself of my fear. I can now think of spiders, even at close quarters, without getting upset. I haven't had an 'encounter' with a spider since my sessions. However, I did have a daddy longlegs, I always lumped these in with spiders, in my kitchen and was quite happy with it. A typical reaction, prior to my treatment, would have been to scream and get someone to get rid of it. I also had a beetle land in my hair, similarly I felt no fear at all. I have every confidence in this therapist and would certainly seek treatment again if I felt the need. A thoroughly enjoyable, non threatening and successful experience!
