Overcome your phobia of Friday 13th with Hypnosis and NLP

I am writing this page on Friday 13th September and the news is full of the number of people who have a deep fear of this date. This phobia (paraskevidekatriaphobia) has been part of superstition lore for hundreds of years, in fact 60 million people worldwide claim to be affected by paraskavedekatriaphobia.Friday_13th

This day occurs 1-3 times a year and is of course unavoidable and cause deep distress for those who fear the date. Many sufferers refuse to travel on this day, attend events or to undertake normal activities.

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 this date putting you back in control of your life and making this day just like any other for you.

Did you know...

  • In France, a dinner with 13 guests is considered unlucky, and superstitious hosts sometimes hire a “quatorzième,” a professional 14th guest.

  • The fear of 13 has also prompted most tall buildings not to have a 13th floor. Hotels will often not have room number 13.

  • It is estimated that businesses loses billions of dollars on this day due to many people not travelling or shopping on these days.
