Hypnotherapy for Phobias

Phobias, often deeply ingrained and overwhelming, can significantly restrict one’s life experiences. Our Hypnotherapy for Phobias service is designed to address and diminish these intense, irrational fears, enabling individuals to lead a more liberated and fulfilling life. Our expert guidance aims to transform how you interact with your worries, turning them from towering obstacles into manageable challenges.

At the core of our approach is the understanding that phobias are more than just fears; they are complex psychological responses embedded in the subconscious. Using Clinical Hypnotherapy, we gently guide you to confront these fears in a safe, controlled environment. This process helps to break down the fear response, reducing its intensity and impact.

How Phobia Hypnotherapy Eliminates These Issues

Hypnosis offers transformative solutions to address and resolve phobia-related issues effectively:

Reducing Irrational Fear

Our hypnotherapist works to reframe and diminish the intense fear associated with specific objects, situations, or activities, replacing it with a sense of calm and control.

Overcoming Avoidance Behaviours

It helps to gradually reduce the urge to avoid the feared subject, encouraging a more rational and manageable approach to facing these fears.

Alleviating Physical Symptoms

Through relaxation techniques and guided imagery, hypnosis eases the physical symptoms experienced during exposure, such as sweating, trembling, and heart palpitations.

Preventing Panic Attacks

It equips individuals with tools to manage and avoid panic attacks, reducing the extreme anxiety triggered by the phobia.

Restoring Daily Functionality

Hypnosis aids in breaking the cycle of fear avoidance, allowing for a return to normal daily activities and routines.

Regaining Control

By targeting the subconscious, hypnosis helps individuals overcome feelings of helplessness and restore control when faced with their phobia.

Facilitating Rational Understanding

Hypnosis assists in aligning rational understanding with emotional responses, helping to rationalise and diminish irrational fears.

Tailoring Treatments to Ease the Symptoms of Fear

In our treatment of phobias, we integrate Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, NLP, and Psychology to provide a comprehensive approach:

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We use hypnotherapy to access the subconscious mind, where phobias often reside. This technique helps reframe the perception of the feared object or situation, reducing its associated anxiety and fear.


This involves exploring the origins and triggers of the phobia. Understanding its root cause can effectively address and diminish its power over the individual.


Through counselling, we provide a supportive environment where clients can openly discuss their fears. This aids in understanding the impact of the phobia on their life and in developing coping strategies.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP techniques change negative thought patterns and behavioural responses associated with the phobia, fostering a more positive and rational approach to the feared subject.


Drawing on psychological principles, we apply cognitive-behavioural strategies to manage phobia symptoms effectively. This includes techniques for relaxation, stress reduction, and desensitisation to the phobic stimulus.

By combining these methodologies, we offer a holistic and effective treatment plan for phobias, empowering clients to face their fears and lead a more unrestricted life.

Understanding Fees and Session Requirements

Our Hypnotherapy for Phobias service offers a clear and straightforward fee structure to support your journey towards overcoming fears:

Fee Per Session: We charge £190 for each one-hour hypnotherapy session.

The number of sessions needed to address and overcome a phobia effectively can vary significantly from person to person. This variation depends on factors such as the intensity of the aversion, individual response to hypnotherapy, and the specific nature of the fear. Some clients may experience substantial progress within a few sessions, while others might require a more extended series of treatments to confront and manage their phobia fully.

Sessions are available either face to face at our clinic in Harley Street, London. Alteratively, we can also arrange sessions remotely online.
