“Just to let you know that Laura's appointment was a success today and she had the tooth out under sedation. She was nervous before she went in but she used her breathing and counting techniques and it was over before she realised what was happening. I would like to thank you for helping Laura with hypnotherapy as it looks like it has done some good and given her some tools to use in these situations that she finds very difficult.”

At Inscape Hypnotherapy we offer highly successful hypnotherapy treatment for fears and phobias that get fantastic results, fast*. Fears and phobias have many different origins; they can be unrelated and seem to appear out of no-where. They can be rational or irrational. Phobias can affect anyone, without discrimination. Its estimated 10 million people in the UK have a phobia.

*Results may vary from person to person

A fear or phobia is a strong physical and emotional response triggered by things such as a thought, smell, taste, sound, situation, object, person or animal. A fear is when something affects you and you experience extremely uncomfortable anxiety and panic symptoms, but can still engage with whatever it is you're fearful of if under pressure. A phobia is when you can’t engage with whatsoever whatever it is you’re fearful of, you avoid it altogether or enter into Fight, Flight or Freeze mode (Our body’s normal response to extreme danger and threat) and possibly experience panic attacks.

There are many different fears and phobias such as flying, injections, buttons, driving, snakes, darkness, enclosed spaces, clowns, spiders, being alone, heights, water/sea, bridges, social situations, exams, tests, certain objects, animals, situations and many more.

Most people are very aware that their response isn’t helpful to them but they just can’t change seem to change the physiological response. Symptoms may include rapid pulse, palpitations, shallow breath or unable to breathe, compression or tightness in your chest, shaking/sweating hands, headaches, wobbly legs, tingling, blurred vision, shaking, nausea, stuttering, obsessive thinking etc.

These symptoms can feel incredibly scary, even terrifying, you can get that awful feeling that something bad is going to happen or even feel like you're going mad or you're going to pass out; this can then lead you to developing a fear of your fear.

There are many causes of fears and phobias; in general they can be the result of something traumatic or on-going stress, they can be learnt or you can even have a possible genetic pre-disposition.

Your fear or phobia can be successfully treated with hypnosis, generally in 3 – 5 sessions. How you have been conditioned, you can be de-conditioned. Hypnosis is very effective for fears and phobias with rapid results, no need for long talking therapies or medication. Hypnotherapy is very safe and most people find the process quite enjoyable!

The amount of sessions and results are dependent upon each person but our success rate is high and we aim to get results in as few sessions as possible whilst ensuring any underlying concerns are taken care of.

How does it Work?

Hypnotherapy works by first understanding your phobia or fear response, by re-conditioning your mind around your fear, desensitising, neutralising and changing the initial phobia or fear response; allowing you your freedom!

Following an extensive review of the existing literature on hypnotherapy, the British Medical Association concluded that hypnotherapy was not only effective but may be ‘the treatment of choice’ in dealing with anxiety and stress-related disorders: ‘The Subcommittee is satisfied after consideration of the available evidence that hypnotism is of value and may be the treatment of choice in some cases of so-called psycho-somatic disorder and psychoneurosis. It may also be of value for revealing unrecognised motives and conflicts in such conditions. As a treatment, in the opinion of the Subcommittee it has proved its ability to remove symptoms and to alter morbid habits of thought and behaviour. (BMA, ‘Medical use of hypnotism’, BMJ, 1955, vol. I, 190-193)

A recent ‘Clinical Review’ of hypnosis and relaxation therapies published in the BMJ looked at the existing research on hypnosis and concluded: ‘There is good evidence from randomised controlled trials that both hypnosis and relaxation techniques can reduce anxiety [...]‘, the same report also concluded that hypnosis was proven to be effective in treating panic attacks and phobia. (Vickers & Zollman, ‘Hypnosis and relaxation therapies,’ BMJ 1999; 319: 1346-1349)
