All of us have unreasonable and unpleasant phobias or fears that we consciously realise are self limiting and stop us from fulfilling our full potential. Phobias that instil fear to a degree that impairs our functions and limits our abilities to achieve goals is not reasonable and is harmful and self defeating. Living with a phobia can be embarrassing and make us feel weak and dis-empowered.
Some people enjoy public speaking and others collapse at the thought of it. Some people are terrified by spiders, birds or many other seemingly ridiculous things or situations. Hypnotherapy allows direct access to the subconscious and allows these learned behavioural responses to be modified.
What we fear and how we fear are based on our past experiences as we grew up. These experiences have formed the unconscious belief structures that underpin our conscious actions. Hypnotherapy is a long term and extremely effective way to treat phobias and has a proven clinical track record of success.
Hypnotherapy is an effective, safe and simple process to modify the negative self limiting subconscious beliefs that dis-empower us and replace them with positive, self-empowering beliefs. Beliefs that will allow us to bring balance to unbalanced fear.
