Do you have a fear or phobia of going to the dentist?

There is a variety of ways we can help you

The fear of going to the dentist, Dentophobia is the extreme fear of dentists and/or having dental treatment.

The combination of Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) can be used to dramatically lesson your anxiety putting you back in control.

Birds NestWhy may you have a fear of going to the dentist?

The phobia may be sparked by some form of negative personal experience with a dentist, such as pain or discomfort, or the fear may develop as the individual hears about other people’s traumatic experiences or negative views of dentists. It is, of course, interesting to find out where your phobia came from. However, we do not have to know this in order to resolve your phobia. All you need to know is that it is something you have learned, and therefore is something which can be unlearned!

What are the symptoms for those who suffer from dentophobia?

The symptoms of the fear vary from person to person. Dentophobia has many common phobia symptoms, such as a feeling of panic, panic attacks, dizziness, nausea, loss of breath sometimes resulting in high blood pressure. This can affect everyday life and become very stressful for the person suffering with the phobia even resulting in them avoiding the dentist so long that they end up in serious pain.

How can you help me get over my fear of going to the dentist?

We use a combination of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and Hypnotherapy. This can take just one or two sessions. There is a specific technique which is called 'The Fast Phobia Cure' which can help you better deal with any traumatic events of being around birds in your past. The process is very successful for lots of people. You are, of course, kept safe at all times. We do not use exposure therapy.

How many sessions does it take?

Most phobias are very simple to unlearn so treatments usually take between one - two sessions. Occasionally, if a phobia is more deep set, additional sessions may be needed.

How much does the phobia consultation cost?

Please see our Prices page.

What if I can't be hypnotised?

Previously it was believed that only some people could do into a hypnotic trance. However, now the general consensus is that we can all going into a trance and indeed all do several times a day as hypnosis is actually a very natural state. We only need a light hypnotic trance to suggest change, a simple day dream where we work with the power of your imagination. We aim that sessions are relaxing and even fun!  You hear everything I say and are in complete control at all times just very, very relaxed.
