Overcome your phobia of escalators with Hypnosis and NLP

A fear of escalators (Escalaphobia) can massively negatively impact your life and I know this because this is something I personally lived with for several years after a fall on a travelator.Fear of Escalators

Escalators are everyone and can be very difficult to avoid. It can also be very difficult for friends and family to understand what you are feeling.

Please be assured to hear that there is something you can do about it, I am living proof!

If you suffer from a escalator or travelator phobia you may find yourself fearful of falling over, getting some of your clothing stuck or not being able to get off at the end. This is a very real fear and can be very distressing as well as inconvenient.

Perhaps you are a parent who is especially worried that your child will learn your fear from you.

At Pure Confidence, we work with a mix of Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques and we can often considerably reduce your level of anxiety around escalators putting you back in control of your life and making your day to day travelling much easier and more pleasurable.

Why do you have a phobia or fear of escalators?

You were not born with your escalators fear (as we are only born with two fears - the fear of falling and of loud noises) so it is probably something you learned as a child perhaps picked up from a close family member who was scared or perhaps like me after a distressing personal experience on one. If you do not know how you got the phobia that is fine all we need to know is you learned it so you can also unlearn it often in just a few sessions.



What are the symptoms for those who suffer from a escalators phobia?

The symptoms vary from person to person. Just the thought of getting on an escalator or travelator may lead to feelings of anxiety, sweatiness, shallow breathing and sometimes even fainting.


How can you help me overcome my escalators phobia?

Each escalator phobia session is customised exactly for you by using a mixture of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), NLP and Hypnotherapy. We often use a successful NLP technique called the Fast Phobia Cure with great results. This aims to put you back in control of your life in as short a time as possible. You are kept safe at all times.


How many sessions will it take?

Most phobias are very simple to unlearn within just a few sessions which usually take around 1 hour - 2 hours each.
