A little fear is normal and natural. Anything more than that might be worth talking about.
Fear means different things to different people:
Some people suffer from extreme anxiety, which they experience as fear associated with a particular thought, or situation, or as a persistent sense of dread.
Some people experience an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal – which is often classified as a phobia.
Some people experience extreme nervousness or a lack of confidence in certain situations (such as public speaking, or taking an exam), or a more general lack of self-esteem, which they experience as fear.
Some people, especially children, suffer from persistent or recurrent nightmares, often without a readily discernible cause.
For other people (such as PTSD sufferers), the cause of their fear is known, at least to some extent.
One in six people aged 16+ reported having symptoms of a common mental disorder in the previous week(data from a House of Commons briefing document on Mental Health)15% of the population of England experiences an anxiety-related common mental health disorder each year Almost 2 million UK citizens suffer from phobia(s) Up to 1 in 30 of the general population suffer from PTSD (but up to 1 in 5 firefighters; 1 in 3 teenage survivors of car crashes; 1 in 2 rape victims; 2 in 3 prisoners of war) In today’s more connected, social media world, with ever more public (and critical) scrutiny of every element of our lives, our confidence and self-esteem may be more challenged than ever.
I came to Steve to relieve some emotional issues that I had been having for a while and just felt I needed a little help. Steve put me at ease... and now I no longer feel weighed down by the negative emotions I was having.
Whatever the precise nature of your fear(s), there are techniques we can use to help address them. In a hypnotic state, the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind are more accessible, and more open to influence and change. It is therefore easier to get to the heart of an issue, and easier to process any unresolved issues while in a hypnotic state.
We believe that you carry within you (within your subconscious) all the resources you need to help you moderate or manage your fear(s) – but you may benefit from some expert assistance to help you get in touch with those inner resources.
