Hypnotherapy to Cure Fears and Phobias

A phobia is where the natural process that addressed fear is interrupted. This leads to each new exposure increasing the experience of fear. A phobia can more accurately be described as a fear of a fear. With hypnotherapy our intention is to restart this natural process that addresses the fear.

Your therapist, Stephen Rigby, has helped hundreds of people people like you with fears and phobias using hypnotherapy since he started his practice in 2002.

Many Doctors, Dentists and Medical Consultants have referred their patients to Stephen Rigby and he is privileged to assist the medical profession.

I look forward to welcoming you to Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy Surrey to either my Guildford, Surrey main practice or to my practice in Woking, Surrey.  

Hypnotherapy to Cure Fears and Phobias

Cure Fears and Phobias with Hypnotherapy

If a fear becomes uncontrollable or irrational it can be described as a phobia. Hypnotherapy, using hypnosis and techniques like Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), can be an effective treatment to cure fears and phobias.

How Do You Get A Phobia?

Fear is derived from a protection mechanism. The protection mechanism that results in a phobia can be triggered by:

If a phobia is initiated by observing someone else’s fear the phobia can be described as being “inherited”. Some phobias like a phobia of thunder and lightning are frequently “inherited”.

How Do You Treat a Phobia?

Addressing a fear or phobia is a process of reducing the sensation of fear.  Ideally, in the process of addressing a fear or phobia using hypnotherapy one should not feel fear. You are learning control so you have to feel in control – you will not be given surprises!  That means, for example, your hypnotherapist will not plant spiders round you if you have a spider phobia nor will he be making you sick if you have Emetophobia (a fear of being sick).

You have a fear of what?!

To complicate matters it is possible for fear to become misdirected.  A logical example of this would be the lady who has a fear of being sick (Emetophobia) becoming frightened of becoming pregnant because of the possibility of morning sickness. The connections are not always that obvious and this phenomenon is explored in the Strange Phobia and Phobia Creep pages.
