Phobias and Fears
Phobias are created in the mind. People aren’t born with them. In fact, babies are born with only two fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Phobias and fears are not something we are born with, but something we have learnt to do very well. With NLP we discover the very first event that taught us to have the phobia (it could be from child hood). We then use a number of NLP techniques such as the Fast Phobia Model, and Time Line Therapy to change the learnings from that event, so that you learn there is no need to have that Fear or Phobia.
Phobias and Fear can limit your life. Would it be amazing to be rid of them?

What happens with Phobias and Fears?
A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. If you have a phobia, you probably realize that your fear is unreasonable, yet you still can’t control your feelings. Just thinking about the feared object or situation may make you anxious. And when you’re actually exposed to the thing you fear, the terror is automatic and overwhelming.
The experience is so nerve-wracking that you may go to great lengths to avoid it — inconveniencing yourself or even changing your lifestyle. If you have claustrophobia, for example, you might turn down a lucrative job offer if you have to ride the elevator to get to the office. If you have a fear of heights, you might drive an extra twenty miles in order to avoid a tall bridge.
Understanding your phobia is the first step to overcoming it. It’s important to know that phobias are common. Having a phobia doesn’t mean you’re crazy! Phobias affect us physically and emotionally. Some of the signs are:
Physical signs and symptoms of a phobia
- Difficulty breathing
- Racing or pounding heart
- Chest pain or tightness
- Trembling or shaking
- Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
- A churning stomach
- Hot or cold flashes; tingling sensations
Emotional signs and symptoms of a phobia
- Feeling of overwhelming anxiety or panic
- Feeling an intense need to escape
- Feeling “unreal” or detached from yourself
- Fear of losing control or going crazy
- Feeling like you’re going to die or pass out
- Knowing that you’re overreacting, but feeling powerless to control your fear
We use a number of techniques to remove the phobia or fears such as Time Line Therapy™, and the Fast Phobia Model. These are very effective and quick methods of removing the phobia and fears. They are also content free, meaning that you don’t need to discuss in detail your phobia or fear with us. The Fast Phobia model can be used for really big fears, when just thinking about the issue will bring on a state of observable state of fear or panic. The client works in a disassociated state, what I mean by this well it’s like watching themselves as if in a movie. Some Phobias and fears (depending how deep root the cause is) can be removed in one session.
Most therapies use the conscious mind, talking through the event that occurred. We use the unconscious mind, where memories, values and beliefs and senses associated to memories are stored. We deal with these senses associated to the event rather than talk through the actual event that happened. NLP deals with the root cause, and is content free. What do I mean by content free? We don’t discuss the actual issues or content, which in the case of very traumatic events it will be the last thing that you want to do. Each significant event in your life has emotions and senses associated to it, sights, (Visual) sounds, (Auditory) feelings (Kinaesthetic) we work with the emotions, values and beliefs that you hold, to change your behaviour and get the results that you want. During the sessions you will learn which tools you need in your tool kit to help you make the long term changes to your behaviour and life
One session to be able to live your life without a Phobia or Fear that would be amazing.
We don’t use any emersion therapies, what do I mean by that. This a method that I do not believe in it is where the client is but in a position where they have to face their fear face on. Mindfulness often uses this technique.
You could get rid of your phobia or fear in just one session? That would be amazing wouldn’t- it? You no longer had to worry of your phobia or fear ruling you and taking over.
You could go one holiday to foreign shores without having to worry about the flight. You could go to the dentist without worrying and get that smile you have always wanted.

Do you come out in sweats when you are on a plane? If you are shown a photo of a plan do you panic? Then you might have a Fear or Phobia of flying.

Do you suffer with dental phobia? You are not alone. One in four of us dreads a visit to the dentist,
Do you dream of a smile and teeth to be proud of? Do you cover your mouth so people cannot see your teeth? Does this affect your self-confidence?
Being afraid of the dentist means different things to different people. Maybe it’s the thought that treatment will hurt, or that the sounds and smells bring back memories of bad experiences as a child.
Dental fear (also called dental phobia, odontophobia, dentophobia, dentist phobia, and dental anxiety) is the fear of dentistry and of receiving dental care. However, it has been suggested that use of the term dental phobia should not be used for people who do not feel that their fears are excessive or unreasonable, and instead resemble individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder, caused by previous traumatic dental experiences.
Your dream smile really is possible. We work with you to overcome your phobia using a number of NLP techniques such as Time Line Therapy, and hypnosis.
