Fears & Phobias

Don’t spend your life in fear of something that can be overcome. Imagine what you could begin to do without that fear holding you back.

Does the sight of a scuttling spider terrify you?

Are you limiting your life experiences by having fears or phobias about things like heights, flying, dogs, cats, snakes, lifts, public speaking etc.?

Most of us have some type of fear or phobia about something, and you can develop a fear or phobia of anything. If your phobia is affecting your life, it’s time to get rid of it.

The great news is that phobias can be overcome, and usually quite quickly. The Cognitive Hypnotherapy approach is safe, gentle and down to earth and usually works in just two sessions, even if you have had your phobia for years.

So don’t spend your life in fear of something that can be overcome. Imagine what you could begin to do without that fear holding you back.

Fears & Phobias

Over the years, claustrophobia had limited me in so many ways, the main one being my inability to get in a lift. I would ALWAYS take the stairs and spent one holiday on a cruise ship climbing 13 flights of stairs daily to get from our cabin to the top deck, just to avoid the lift. I would get a cold sweat going anywhere new until I knew that there were stairs for me to climb. I contacted Gwen Ritchie to chat about my situation and her positivity from the start gave me confidence that I actually may be able to make some life changing differences.

I went for 3 sessions of Cognitive Hypnotherapy where we addressed my fears and Gwen set out to change these for me. On my 3rd session, we went to a local cafe and worked on getting me in their lift. I was astonished that I managed to do this and actually felt really good about being able to do so afterwards!!

From there, I went from strength to strength and used a lift as often as I could. I challenged myself to use every lift I came in contact with… and I managed!

Gwen has changed my life with only 3 sessions……I can now take my daughter out in her pram and go anywhere! No longer do I have any limitations and I cannot thank Gwen enough for her kindness, her patience, her hard work and the empathy she had for the severe claustrophobia that I used to suffer!

Thanks a million Gwen xx
