How to overcome fear using hypnosis
Fear is a natural emotion that is designed to protect us from harm. However, sometimes our fears can become irrational and limit our ability to live life to the fullest. Whether it’s a fear of public speaking, flying, or heights, phobias can hold us back from achieving our goals and enjoying life. Hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used to help overcome these fears and live a more fulfilling life.
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and focused attention that allows the mind to become more receptive to suggestions. In this state, the subconscious mind is more open to positive suggestions that can help you overcome your fears. Hypnosis can help you reframe your thoughts and beliefs about the thing you fear, so that you can learn how to overcome anxiety and fear.
One of the benefits of hypnosis is that it is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that can be used to treat a wide range of fears and phobias.
Some of the most common fears that hypnosis can help with include:
Fear of public speaking
Fear of flying
Fear of heights
Fear of spiders or other animals
Fear of enclosed spaces
Fear of social situations
Fear of driving
In the 18 years I have been a practicing Integrative Hypnotist, I have worked with ALL of these!
Hypnosis can be an effective treatment for these fears because it allows you to access the subconscious mind, where many of our fears and limiting beliefs are stored. By accessing these beliefs, hypnosis can help you reprogram your thoughts and feelings about the thing you fear, so that you no longer feel anxious or afraid.
During a hypnosis session, the hypnotist will guide you into a relaxed state of mind. They will then use various techniques to help you visualize a positive outcome and reframe your thoughts and beliefs about the thing you fear. For example, if you have a fear of flying, the hypnotist may guide you through a visualization exercise where you imagine yourself on a plane feeling calm and relaxed. By visualizing this positive outcome, you can start to retrain your brain to associate flying with positive feelings instead of anxiety and fear.

Hypnosis can also help you develop new coping mechanisms and strategies for dealing with your fears. For example, the hypnotist may teach you deep breathing exercises or other relaxation techniques that you can use when you feel anxious or afraid. They may also help you develop new thought patterns and beliefs that support a more positive outlook on the thing you fear.
While hypnosis can be a powerful tool for overcoming fears, it’s important to remember that it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Everyone’s experience with hypnosis will be different, and some people may require more sessions than others. Additionally, it’s important to work with a qualified hypnotist who can tailor the approach to your individual needs and help you achieve the best possible outcome.
I learned on my very first day of Hypnosis training that most hypnotists are reading a “one-size-fits-all” script. Fortunately I trained with a brilliant woman who taught us how to find what each individual needs for the best outcome.

I particularly love when I work with children on how to overcome fear. I have a local pediatrician who has been sending me her patients with fears for over a decade. When I help a child, like Rhyan, overcome their fear of needles or bees or social anxiety, it changes the trajectory of their whole life going forward. They KNOW that they can overcome ANYTHING!
In conclusion, if you’re struggling with a fear that is holding you back, hypnosis may be a valuable tool to help you overcome it. By accessing the subconscious mind and reprogramming your thoughts and beliefs, hypnosis can help you develop a more positive outlook on the thing you fear and provide you with the coping mechanisms and strategies you need to move forward. With the help of a qualified hypnotist, you can overcome your fears and live a more fulfilling life.
