Overcoming Fears and Phobias

Dog PHOBIAIn earlier posts I talked about The Religion of Fear (ROF). And it might as well be a religion; it seems like everywhere you go, you find believers!

But it’s a serious matter. People can become incapacitated by mysterious fears and phobias, even though they may believe their fears are silly.

“Why should I be afraid to step into a perfectly reliable elevator?” Sherrie thinks. Yet even when she’s late and doesn’t have time to walk up three flights of stairs to her doctor’s office, she takes the stairwell anyway.

There’s also a prevailing belief that it can take months or even years of therapy to get free of unreasonable fears or phobias. It’s big business treating these fears as full-blown diseases (which only solidifies them in the mind). But as outlandish as it may sound, with proper hypnotherapeutic technique such fears can be released in as little as three to five minutes—even if you’ve been afflicted with the fear or phobia for 20 years or more! I know this is true because I watch it happen all the time —  in my office, and in my public programs.

People often spend thousands of dollars on “traditional” methods, just to get free of a fear or phobia. But just because a problem is usually tackled in a certain way by most people, that doesn’t mean it’s going to work! In my work with hundreds of clients, both in person and over the phone, I have facilitated their quick and lasting freedom from fear with the Fast Phobia Cure.

My method, Transpersonal Hypnotherapy/NLP, saves you time and money because it helps you easily release the fear that has been controlling your life and decisions. We can do a private hypnotherapy session to help you overcome your fears or phobias, either in person or by phone/Skype. For over 20 years I’ve been helping people overcome all manner of fears, including:

Fear of Public Speaking (Stage Fright)
Fear of Flying
Fear of Heights
Fear of Spiders & Insects
Fear of Dogs, Animals
Claustrophobia
Agoraphobia

This CNN article surveys different methods of hypnotherapy for overcoming the  phobia or fear of flying and/or claustrophobia. These methods address only the “surface level,” however. The  method I use in private sessions, and which I describe in the book, Finding True Magic, eradicates the problem at the root so it doesn’t come back.

In Finding True Magic: Transpersonal Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy/NLP, I describe in detail the Fast Phobia Cure that has helped so many people overcome their fears in a matter of minutes.

Here’s a short clip from a talk I gave recently on understanding the hypnotic power of language, at Nalanda West Center for American Buddhism, founded by the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. If you like this first clip you’ll want to watch the 2nd and 3rd in this series of excerpts: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLhc5AOrZ4A[/youtube]

May we all prosper with enhanced compassion and wisdom!
