Fears and Phobias

Approximately 10% of all adults and 15% of teenagers are living with a phobia of some kind.

Fears and phobias can range from being a nuisance to being absolutely debilitating, affecting your social life, family relationships, and even work prospects.

No matter how hard we try, no matter how irrational they seem, no matter how low the risk is, we cannot logic our way out of a phobia. That’s where hypnotherapy can help.
