Phobia Hypnotherapy in Wakefield

Phobias, however bizarre they appear to others, can be a real problem for many people. You are not alone. Through hypnosis and discussion, the aim is to help you to pinpoint the time in your life when you developed the phobia and why, if you don’t already know this of course. It can be that we don’t actually ‘own’ the phobia and have been influenced by others. Phobias quite often start in childhood and persist into adulthood. Sometimes phobias can become more problematic when we are are going though periods of stress in our lives.

What will happen in a hypnosis session?

I will help you feel at ease during your session. The session includes guiding you into a trance, where your mind and body can completely relax and let go of any tension. Clients report feeling calm, light, focused, sleepy, and pain-free. You are not asleep during the session.

How does Hypnosis work?

During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion.

There are several stages of hypnosis:

  • Reframing the problem
  • Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
  • Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
  • Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
  • Returning to usual awareness
