About the Fear of Dogs Hypnosis SessionDog Image

Being extremely scared of dogs (also called Cynophobia) or puppies is actually very common, and can be very worrying for people affecting their lives in many ways. Perhaps you are unable to see friends who own dogs or find it difficult to go to a park. In extreme cases you may have a phobic response from seeing a picture of a dog or a dog on TV or in a film.

Of course, it is good to have some degree of caution around dogs and you may want to get to a stage when you can just control your reactions rather than being best friends with them! However, many, many dogs are obediant and loving and can be a wonderful addition to your life. The good news is that by using a combination of Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming, we can change your level of fear to a healthier mutual respect putting you back in control of your life!

Why do I have a phobia of dogs?

It may be that you do not know why you have a fear of dogs, perhaps you were bitten or saw someone being bitten when you were younger. Perhaps someone close to you had the same fear or perhaps it was the sound of the barking which caused the phobia. Although it is interesting to find out where this fear came from, we do not need to know to treat your phobia, it is a conditioned response, which can be easily unlearned!

What are the symptoms of a dog phobia?

The symptoms do vary by person but often include strong signs of anxiety, panic attacks, shallow breathing, a possible lack of concentration, fast breathing, a pounding heart, nausea, intense sweating, a dry mouth, and shaking. This can be brought about just by seeing a picture of a dog or seeing one in a film as well as if you see one in real life.

How can you help me get over my dog phobia?

We use a combination of CBT, NLP and Hypnotherapy to achieve the best possible results in as quick a time as possible.We may use a specific NLP technique called 'The Fast Phobia Cure' which models how other people have successfully got over their phobia. You are kept safe at all times, without the need to use in vivo exposure therapy.

How many hypnotherapy sessions will it take?

Most phobias are very simple to conquer and the treatment usually takes just one - two hours. Very occasionally a further session may be required.

Where are your offices based?

We have hypnotherapy offices in Lingfield, Surrey and our head office is in Sompting, Lancing which is in between Worthing and Brighton on the South Coast of England. If you can't get to our offices, we can also work with you over SKYPE.

What if I can't be hypnotised?
