Hypnotherapy for Phobias

“A phobia is a real FEAR. It is irrational, persistent and unreasonable!”

Clammy hands, heart palpitations, jelly legs; many people experience discomfort around a phobia. But when it disrupts your enjoyment of life and you start to feel out of control, it needs to be addressed. Hypnotherapy for phobias is highly successful.

Success in treating phobias with hypnosis

The key to successful treatment is to understand the root of your phobia, the events that triggered it and what your physical or emotional response is. Once I understand this I can tailor the hypnosis session to you as an individual. Read about the incredible success I’ve had using hypnotherapy to treat phobias.

How many hypnotherapy sessions will it take to get rid of my phobia?

Effective treatment usually takes three sessions, depending on the complexity of your phobia.

Session 1 – Understanding your phobia (2 hours)
Your first session will focus on getting to the root cause of your phobia. We’ll talk in detail about your experiences. When did it start, how long have you had it, how does it restrict your life, how does it make you feel? All this information will help me to tailor the hypnotherapy session to you as an individual.

Session 2 – Rewind (1 hour)
I will teach you about anchor points, breathing strategies and other techniques to help you stay in control of your phobia.

Session 3 – Brainworking (1 hour)
This is a dynamic session focused on re-patterning your thoughts and memories around your phobia. It will give you a more rational, manageable response to your phobia in future and help you eliminate it forever. Your final task will be to put yourself in a situation where you might experience your phobia. You will put into practice everything you’ve learnt. This is the final step in being free of your phobia.

Hypnotherapy for Phobias – A Case Study

Rachel came to me to her conquer her claustrophobia. She had signed up for a ‘Tough Mudder’ challenge that required her to crawl through tunnels. Her phobia of enclosed spaces had become so severe she couldn’t even venture under the bed to retrieve a lost sock. It was starting to control her life and limit the activities she could enjoy with her family. Rachel wanted to beat her phobia once and for all and chose hypnotherapy to help her do it.

“If anyone ever doubts what you can help them overcome, please show them these photos. I was totally overcome with emotion when I realised I’d done it! Thank you so much.”



I believe my fear of flying was fuelled by 9/11 and it gradually got worse. This year I decided it was getting out of control and needed to do something about it. I heard from one of my friends that Hypnosis helped her, so I thought I would give it a go given that I was due to fly in little over a week’s time and my stomach had already begun to take the turn. Sally was able to fit in two sessions at very short notice; even after the sessions I was a little sceptical about actually getting on the plane but already felt a little more at ease with the whole idea. My flight was great…! From the moment I stepped foot into the airport I felt I could really begin my holiday – and I hadn’t felt that in years. We even experienced turbulence, which previously would have totally freaked me out, but I didn’t even bat an eyelid.’ - Gina

I went to see Sally as a last resort for help for a ever-growing needle phobia I had due to a childhood experience that had worsened over the years. Sally helped me to overcome this so I can go on to have blood tests to be able to start a family. When I met Sally it was a relief to finally have someone who understood me and listened to me. Sally also helped me overcome the stress anxiety and sleep issues I had been having in the last year that seemed to be escalating in my head and I felt low and hopeless and not myself. Sally saw this in me and offered me help with feeling better more in control and confident in all other areas. This was an added bonus. I started hypnotherapy unable to recognise myself and I left ‘being me’ again. Sally gave me back my hope, confidence and control in just a few sessions and I began sleeping better and smiling again… a real smile not the one I had perfected to the outside world. I was lost when I met Sally and now I’m happy, hopeful and looking forward to the rest of my life without being crippled by fears and phobias!’ - Emma
