Is your fear of spiders negatively affecting your life? With hypnotherapy & NLP you can get over your fear - quicky and easily!Luc.Viator Flickr Beautiful Web

Choose between a face to face Hypnotherapy Session, a SKYPE session or an MP3 download/CD purchase to help you with your spider phobia.

The fear of spiders is very common, many people are not fans of spiders but for some it is a strong fear or phobia where even the picture of a spider can cause a feeling of anxiety.

For those who live in Australia or Africa, it is, of course, important to be wary of spiders. In the UK where we are lucky to have no poisonous spiders, this fear becomes irrational.

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 you have a phobia of spiders?

You may have 'learnt' your phobia from an adult or other child early in your life or you may have suffered from an early triggering event at an early age. Perhaps you saw someone scream when they saw a spider or one landed on you. Interestingly, it does not matter what caused your phobia, you only need to know that it is a learned response, which can be easily unlearned!

What are the symptoms of a spider phobia?

The symptoms do vary by person but can include extreme anxiety, panic attacks, shallow breath, lack of concentration, faster breathing, a pounding heart, nausea, sweating, a dry mouth, and shaking. This can be brought about just by seeing a picture of a spider or seeing one in a film as well as seeing one in real life.

How can you help me get over my spider 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 technique called 'The Fast Phobia Cure' which imitates how other people have successfully got over their phobia. The exercises are very successful for many people. You are kept safe at all times, without the need to use exposure therapy.

How many sessions does it take?

Our Phobia Programme normally takes up to two sessions. Phobias can be very simple to unlearn.

Where are you based?

We have offices near East Grinstead, West Sussex, Lingfield, Surrey and our head office is in Sompting, Lancing which is in between Brighton and Worthing on the South Coast of England. If you can't get to our offices, we can also work with you over SKYPE, Facetime or by telephone.

Alternatively, you can download the following MP3 Download/CD Purchase which is an hypnosis script for getting over your fear of spiders. Here you have the advantage of listening in the comfort of your own home. The MP3/CD is recorded by a professional and experienced hypnotherapist.

What if I can't be hypnotised?

Hypnosis is a natural state which everyone goes in and out of several times a day anyway. You do not need a deep hypnotic trance to make the changes, we use the power of your imagination to create the change. Sessions are relaxing and can even be fun!

'I have had a spider phobia my entire life, which was so bad that if there was a spider above a doorway I couldn't walk under it! I only spent a few minutes with Jo and afterwards was able to not only go on a "spider hunt" in my friend's garage but was able to put my hand out and touch the spider that we found. This would have been completely unthinkable before my session with Jo and I would have run a mile at the mere thought of actively looking for a spider! Jo was absolutely lovely and made me feel very comfortable with her positive approach and friendly attitude, huge recommendations!'
