Hypnotherapy for fears and phobias

Information about hypnotherapy for fears and phobias.

If you can think of something, very likely someone will have a fear or a phobia to it. Most likely you know someone who is scared of something.

Sometimes we have a fear response for very good reasons and it is to keep us safe. As an example if we were near a cliff edge and start to feel anxious, it is to keep us safe and to give us a warning not to go to near the edge.

Fears and phobias can sometimes be created from a particular incident in the past or it can be something learnt from a care giver. An example of that could be a parent showing anxious signs to something and the child learning from that behaviour and takes on that response too.

Fears and phobias can be very disabling at times and causing less progression in our lives. It may cause us to avoid situations or it may stop us from taking opportunities or it may cause us to react in other ways. As a personal example I used to feel incredibly nervous at public speaking in my previous career of being a photographer. Before my first networking experience I spent 3 hours rehearsing a 40 second pitch. That is a lot of time.

A phobia tends to be a more stronger reaction to something specific. Sometimes people can’t even say the word that creates the response.

If you would like to feel more at ease, to have a more neutral response and to see if hypnotherapy for fears and phobias is right for you, please get in touch via a free discovery call.

I met David with some initial scepticism about Hypnotherapy. But was put at ease very quickly. Within minutes I felt... momentum and were working on my flying phobia and social anxiety issues.His voice is perfect for Hypnotherapy and I really enjoy listening back to the audio's of our sessions.After visiting previous counsellors with very limited progress, we have made significant progress in such a short period. So much so, I have now flown and witnessed many improvements with my social anxieties also. Thanks to David, I feel my world has opened up again. He is also willing to go the extra mile to provide help with any other issues you might have.I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!Bottom line, I wish I had met David 30 years ago!read more

I had a hypnotherapy session with David as I was struggling with motivation. I was finding it difficult to study and to get motivated to go out to the gym and get active again! David really helped before we started the hypno he did a consultation to find out exactly what I wanted from it. He explained the whole process and answered any questions I had. The hypnotherapy really worked! I’ve been more motivated to go to the gym and study and passed an exam by 84%! Really would recommend David, he’s very professional and really wants to help with what you want to achieve! I’m already checking my calendar to see when I can see him next.

David massively helped me out, he explained everything step by step and listened to what I wanted. I had insomnia that had been steadily getting worse for 6 years, after 1 session I started sleeping better than I had in a long time. It took 3 sessions overall but now it’s been a month and I’ve slept every single night. 5/5 recommendation

David has a soft voice that makes you relax instantly. He talked me through what we were going to do and how that even though it was hypnotherapy there was no way that he could make me do anything that I wouldn’t be comfortable doing. David then got me to close my eyes and we started the hypnotherapy session. His was so relaxing and easy to follow. I felt as though I had been under for longer than I thought, it was that relaxing! I weaned myself off my medication with the help of my medical professional so that I could see for myself the true benefits of this treatment. When David came to my unwanted sensation level was at a 7-8/10 after the session I was down to a 2, which for me was amazing and really slept a good health sleep for a few nights after before having to go to my “healing place” I’m pleased to say that I can go to “my healing place” when I need to and I am more able to relax and sleep better and feel more rested as a result. Thank you David

I just wanted to say a big thank you. I did not think that hypnotherapy would be able to help me get back on track with healthy eating. After some emotional turmoil last year, I did not realise or notice that I had turned to food as a way of coping with circumstances outside of my control. I was so impressed with my first session; I did not think that I would notice a change in myself immediately. Thank you so much for your understanding and none judgemental approach. I felt confident and at ease straight away. I am now on a much healthier path and feel much better for it, both physically and mentally. I will be sure to recommend your services. With many thanks

I cannot recommend David highly enough. If you’re worried about trying Hypnotherapy David will talk you through the process and cover any concerns and you’ll feel totally at ease. The even better part is it works! We’ve covered several topics already, and in once session I’ve managed to control sleep apnoea and sleep better and for longer. We’reworking on a couple of phobias at the moment too. He won’t just leave you to it afterwards either – customer follow up is brilliant. What are you waiting for? Go for it!

I engaged with Dave on his Weight reduction programme. The results spoke for themselves – down a dress size whilst never dieting or cutting out any special food group. Dave has a great empathetic manner which puts you at ease straight away. It can be painful to talk about your problems – he doesn’t judge – only listens. Dave is able to quickly understand the issues you are experiencing and to incorporate them into the hypnotherapy session. The whole experience leaves you feeling relaxed and motivated. (He is also great with cats) I highly recommend!

On Sunday David Webb hypnotised me to not eat chocolate or buy chocolate when I go to the supermarket. I went food shopping last night and didn’t want any chocolate. I bought it because my daughter wanted cream eggs. I have no urge to eat it or want it! I am amazed! Thank you!

My initial thoughts when considering hypnosis for nervousness and panic attacks, while driving on fast roads, were scepticism and wariness. However David was very good at reassuring any worries I had and explaining the procedures. The treatments have not only helped me understand, and work through my fears, without panicking, but have also helped me assess other situations without reacting impulsively to them. I have found that I can get to sleep quicker,without running over situations that would worry me. I have a better quality of sleep and I wake up feeling refreshed, and not over planning the day ahead. The hypnosis sessions have been very helpful and much more constructive and positive than counselling. I thoroughly recommend hypnotherapy with David for anyone experiencing challenges and stress in life.

David was professional, friendly and explained everything in detail before we proceeded. He took the time to assess what I needed and the best ways to work with me and made sure I was comfortable. He used a variety of techniques to achieve my goal and I think he did a great job. I have definitely achieved what I wanted to and its had a big impact on my life!

I can thoroughly recommend the clinical hypnotherapy treatment I received from David Webb. It has proved to be very effective insofar as it has helped to substantially decrease the symptoms and, at the same time, has now enabled me to better manage the ‘triggers’ which cause anxiety and associated conditions. His help has been invaluable. David has a very positive and confidence-inspiring manner and I have no hesitation in recommending him. A big thank you!
