???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 6.3 million Americans have a diagnosed phobia.[1]

Have you ever felt the fear of flying on an airplane? The fear of public speaking? The fear of being enclosed in an elevator? What about the fear of a spider, snake, or another animal? There is no need to let those fears dictate how you live your life.

Hypnosis works very well with fears, accessing the underlying cause, or initial sensitizing event; and eliminating the conditioned fear response. A meta-analysis of the literature found that “clients who had received cognitive-behavioral treatment with hypnosis showed a 70% greater improvement than clients who had received cognitive-behavioral treatment without hypnosis.”[2]

In my hypnosis practice, I have helped clients overcome the fears listed above, and so many others: fear of birthing, fear of driving on highways, fear of driving over bridges, fear of stepping on an escalator, fear of cephalopods, fear of having a ceiling collapse on you while sleeping, and many more.

Read what some of my other clients have to say about my fear release services here and here.
