She Conquers Fears & Phobias with Hypnosis!

Hypnosis to overcome fear

A TRUE STORY OF USING HYPNOSIS FOR ANXIETY:  I am a 62-year-old male. For the last six or seven years I had developed a fear of stairs and heights. I could  not get up or down the staircases in my home. On those days I would crawl up the stairs and come down on my rear-end like a 15-month-old toddler. This fear was interfering with my life. With the agreement of my physician, I decided to try hypnosis. I contacted Stephanie Dalfonzo. She was encouraging, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I can now navigate the stairs in my home without the gripping fear I lived with for so long. I should have done this years ago. I am also proud that I conquered this fear. Hypnosis and Stephanie work!! Try them  —DGB, Ridgefield


Fear and Phobias Are More Common Than We Let On: Hypnosis for anxiety can help

Fear and phobias are more common than many would believe. Hypnosis for anxiety, fears and phobias is not something many people are aware can be their ticket to freedom! In the New York Times, JILL WERMAN HARRIS wrote a very personal article about dealing with her claustrophobia (click here to read article). I applaud her willingness to share her experience and yet I feel really sad for her, as she navigates every day trying to find a way to deal with it. I’m sure many New Yorkers are reading the article and saying “me too”. Freedom is a lot closer and a lot easier than they think! 

As my client (from many years ago) shares above, it IS possible to conquer a fear or phobia- easily and quickly – with hypnosis! I’ve helped HUNDREDS of clients overcome their fears of flying, claustrophobia, fear of public speaking, fears of driving on highways and bridgesfear of needles, and even one client who had an intense fear that he would soil his pants while driving.

In her article, Ms. Harris mentions “exposure therapy” – where you experience the fear a little bit, then a little bit more. This is insane to me! One of the basic tenets of my practice is, and always has been, that healing can be gentle. WHY would I want to re-traumatize my clients in the “hope” that maybe that would eventually lead to them getting past their fear and phobias

I’m sad that she doesn’t seem to have any idea that hypnosis for anxiety is so incredibly effective!

I’m also sad for Ms. Harris’ children as she mentions “Sadly, it was a spectacular display of florid insanity for my then-young children”. In my experience, I’ve had many clients who had these fears and phobias as a learned response from their parents! The good news is, hypnosis for anxiety can be your ticket to freedom!

Albert Einstein said years ago “Problems cannot be solved with the same mind-set that created them.” Fears and phobias are created in the unconscious mind, so no amount of talking at the conscious level is going to resolve them!

Using Hypnosis for Anxiety, to Conquer Fear and Phobias

A perfect example of this is my client Sarah, who overcame used hypnosis for anxiety to get over her fear of flying and now has visited all 7 continents and has her own business “The Five Foot Traveler!” It’s hard to believe when you see her photographs, but there really was a point in time when she was so paralyzed and controlled by her fear of flying that she wouldn’t and couldn’t get on an airplane!!

conquers fears and phobias with hypnosis

Think of your brain like an iceberg. You only see about 10% above the waterline – that represents the conscious mind. The 90% below the surface represents the unconscious mind! That is where our issues reside and where we can easily access them for healing.

Many people think of hypnosis as swinging pocket watches and barking like a dog or clucking like a chicken. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Close your eyes for a moment and become aware of what you hear in the room you are in and perhaps the room next door or outside. That is what it feels like to be in hypnosis!

Hypnosis is a relaxed, naturally occurring state of mind. Have you ever been driving, deep in thought, and found that you missed your exit? Have you ever been so engrossed in a book or movie that you didn’t hear someone calling your name? These are both common hypnotic experiences where you experience a light state of hypnosis. When in hypnosis, you are in a heightened state of awareness, allowing us to contact the unconscious mind directly where we are able to accept change much more readily.

Trying to manage your fears or phobias totally shrinks your world to almost nothing. It robs you of your ability to enjoy all of the good things this life has to offer. It’s also exhausting and completely unnecessary! There IS a better way – a way that leaves you feeling empowered and in control! How would you like to feel like that kind of feeling ?  That’s what happens when you use hypnosis for anxiety relief.

If you find yourself living in a similar situation, I would love to have a conversation with you about getting your freedom back. Isn’t it time? If someone you know and care about is suffering with a fear or phobia, please share this article with them. I work virtually, so I can work with anyone – anywhere in the world!

I was having a really rough summer, which led to numbing anxiety and plain fear. I woke up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep because my heart was pounding and it was hard to breathe. I had a lot on my plate, fun things, but was incapable of starting anything, so I turned to Stephanie for help. After just ONE session, things changed dramatically, and since then I have launched my program and am sleeping at night again. And the best thing of all, I get to do all the fun stuff!

I had a serious car accident when I was 17 which landed me in the hospital and unable to walk or go to school for several months afterward. I had recurrent dreams and moments of reliving the crash for months. Fast forward 38 years, and I had another car accident a few weeks ago. I was shocked to find that same crash recurrence happening again, and creating a lot of anxiety when I drove. Knowing Stephanie's talents, I immediately contacted her and set up a session. What I loved is that she didn't go back and make me relive the crash again but knew that there might be a different cause for the PTSD. Sure enough, we discovered it and healed it. I can't tell you the difference since our session. Not once recurrence, and while I'm still a little nervous driving (which isn't a bad thing) I have the whole thing in perspective, and that out of the blue PTSD is gone! Thanks so much, Stephanie. Your gifts are amazing and appreciated!

If you are thinking that you don’t really need Stephanie . . . you’re wrong!!! I am here to tell you that you don’t even understand how much she can really help you. Success is exponential with Stephanie. I am now doing things in my business that I have wanted to do for years!! Thanks to Stephanie! The best way I can describe it in a “nutshell” is that she creates a safe space that allows you to release the old stuff that doesn’t serve you anymore. Then she helps you replace it with the things you want and the patterns and thoughts that help you get it. She has the expertise, experience, professionalism and drive to make her one of the best intuitive life coaches I have ever had! She has so many tools to use to help you succeed – from the unconscious to “nuts and bolts” – you’ll get it all. Then she has the methods to motivate and keep you on task. Most importantly for me is that she is intuitive so she can really tap into to what I personally need and want. She is worth the investment! I highly recommend her!!

Working with Stephanie has been life changing. She has helped me to release blockages that I didn’t even realize were holding me back from achieving the business success that I truly desire. After working with Stephanie for less than two months, the magic started to happen in my business. “Out of the blue” two ideal clients called me and I booked $20,000 worth of new business just like that! I have moved from anxiety and struggle to ease and faith. Thank you a million times over Stephanie. Your patience, guidance and unique talent have had a huge impact on my life and business.

I started to work with Stephanie when I thought I could not fit one more thing into my life. I am so happy to admit that I was wrong and I am so grateful that I got to work with a passionate, compassionate and enthusiastic woman such as Stephanie. I have started a new biz about bringing more peace and love into the world, I work as an artist and writer and you would think I had time for self-care. I kept forgetting me every day. Stephanie helped me to reintroduce myself to myself and find the time to just be and breathe and know that the answers do show up. Now I don't start the day with the world issues crashing down on me. I take the time to meditate, breathe, ask questions and give myself the most positive pep talks I can give myself. Working with Stephanie was like working with a dear friend who has all the answers, but her humanity and kindness really resonated with me. I can't thank Stephanie enough for her willingness to help me see my gifts and that I will not just walk thru my life; I will run thru it with my dreams intact and a really good pair of sneakers!
