FEARS & PHOBIAS

Conquering Fear by Retraining Response

Fear is a natural response to perceived danger.  It is part of the fight, flight, or freeze instinct we all possess.  But when a fear is overblown, such as when there is no actual danger, or when a fear becomes irrational or debilitating, then it may be time to seek help to overcome it.

Phobias can feel so overwhelming because your memory is connected to your body's physical responses.  If your mind associates a specific thought or object with a fear response, your body responds with instant, physical fight or flight reactions that can feel uncomfortable and overwhelming. 

 

I use hypnosis to help train your mind to respond in a neutral or calm way to the same benign input that once triggered fear.  We may explore how you learned the irrational fear in the first place in order to diffuse the old, conditioned response and replace it with a more appropriate one.
