What is a phobia?

A phobia is recognised as an anxiety disorder; it is far more debilitating than fears and causes individuals to feel in intense danger around a particular object or scenario. Phobias can have an immense impact on daily life and come alongside many symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea, sweating and shaking. In more severe situations, a phobia can cause heart palpitations and an upset stomach.

How does hypnotherapy for phobias work?

As phobias work on a subconscious level, hypnotherapy is perfect for helping you overcome your fears for good. In the past, regardless of how much you would have told yourself a situation/object isn’t life-threatening, believing it would have felt impossible. However, through hypnotherapy for phobias, you will target these triggers on a deeper level. It will allow you to retrain your brain to alter how you think and behave, so your phobia will no longer be seen as a danger.

Testimonial from my previous client

I had an online session with Victoria for travel sickness, and I am so glad I did. Her voice is so soothing, and I felt really comfortable with her like I could tell her anything. I really felt the session was personalised to me based on what I had told her, and that made all the difference for me, I felt like she genuinely cared. Victoria is so good that I have booked future sessions with her, and I will be recommending her to friends and family.
