Fears and Phobias

Overcome Fears & Phobias

Panic Disorders including Fears and Phobias respond excellently to hypnopsychotherapy


Panic disorders including fears and phobias respond excellently to hypnopsychotherapy because all are learned behaviors, and come under the heading of cause and effect and once the cause is unearthed during hypno-regression, the emotional effects dissipate. The client learns to gain a sense of internal control over the fearful or anxiety-producing trigger.

The most common fears and phobias treated in Claire Russell Therapy Clinics are:

Blushing – Examinations – Flying – Driving/Driving tests – Spiders – Birds – Heights – Dentists – Open spaces – Social phobia – Dogs – Failure – Medical procedures (needles, anesthesia etc) – Water – Sexual performance anxiety – Losing control


Hypnotherapy can help

Phobias and the resulting panic are some of the most debilitating conditions that can affect the human population


They represent the ultimate panic attack. Once triggered, the heart races, the head spins, palms sweat, knees buckle and breathing becomes labored. The vision may blur and, in some cases, a fainting spell occurs. Some who are particularly hard hit say it feels as if they are going to have a heart attack.

Hypnotherapy helps sufferers in two ways: first, by desensitising you to your specific trigger (breaking the association); and second, by training you how to create the relaxation response on command.

Hypnotherapy helps you overcome phobias by reprogramming your mind’s reaction to the trigger. Techniques used by hypnotherapists may vary for each client, because individuals is different a good hypnotherapist should be comfortable with a large number of techniques and approaches.

Over 10% of the population will experience a phobia at some point in their lives. It can be helpful to understand that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.



You don’t need to live with panic


This can vary from two to three sessions for a simple phobia to 8 – 12 sessions where the panic is generalised and severe. I use a combination of hypno-cognitive therapy and hypnoanalysis to find the cause and thereby eliminate the emotional effects. There is no reason to live with something panicking you on the inside but outside your own control.  Hypnotherapy helps you overcome the phobia, and even alleviate it altogether.
