What is a FEAR or PHOBIA?
What is the difference between a FEAR and a PHOBIA?
We all suffer from fears and that is because a fear is a natural reaction when faced with possible real danger. For example the fear of heights when walking dangerously close to a cliff edge. A fear is your survival instinct to keep you out of harm’s way.
A Phobia can be considered similar to a fear because it would have originated from a natural fear. But a phobia is quite different because it has become an irrational, over exaggerated fear. Often situations that present little or no danger can greatly affect an individual with a phobia.

Types of Fears
Neil has successfully helped people with many types of phobias. Including:
What is a Phobia
A persistent irrational fear of a specific object, activity or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid.
Humans are NOT born with phobias. However babies are born with two instinctive fears. The fear of loud noises and the fear of falling. These fears often just stay that, a natural fear. However sometimes the fear of falling can develop into the fear of heights or the fear of flying.
But generally all phobias stem from childhood and are learnt behaviours from our parents or other people. For example; if you have a fear of spiders you were not born like that. When you was a toddler you might have found a spider intriguing rather than scary. However a phobia can develop in a split second when we experience a parent panicking in the presence of a spider. We learn most of our subconscious behaviours from our parent’s behaviours from an early age.
A Phobia is an internal reaction to something external. Essentially the subconscoius mind protects its owner from a threat, thus protecting its owner. Sometimes though this can make people feel irrational and out of control.
Usually Phobia's can be treated very successfully with Hypnotherapy.
Fear of Flying
The Fear of Flying is the most common fear that Neil treats with Hypnotherapy. It is quite astonishing how many people miss out on the holiday of their dreams because they are terrified of flying.
Neil uses a unique blend of Hypnosis techniques to remove the fear to fly in 2 Sessions. Neil recommends the first session about 30 days before flight. Then the 2nd session just before the actual flight. Neil also provides a CD/MP3 audio as part of this treatment.

HOW MANY SESSIONS
Usually only 2 or 3 Hypnotherapy sessions are required to treat Fears or Phobia's, but more sessions are always available if a person feels they may benefit further from the sessions.
