Scared of spiders? Rachael was, in fact it was a full-blown phobia:
"I recently had hypnotherapy for my extreme phobia of spiders - something I was keen to address before my holiday to Costa Rica."
Well, you would be. Costa Rica has nearly 2000 species of spider, including tarantulas and Brazilian Wandering Spiders, and they... wander. So, we did a hypnotherapy session on that - just one, mind - and...
"And it worked!!! I am so happy! I wasn't convinced anything could 'cure me' after it being a problem for so many years, but the hypnotherapy worked."
Notice how everybody always seems so surprised by the fact that it worked? That's because they didn't expect it to, which proves this is no 'placebo' effect, due to believing in hypnosis in the first place, no! It just works.
"I saw spiders a few times in Costa Rica and although I was a little on edge (like anyone would be around something poisonous) I was a million times better, not neurotic and panicky like previously. I was able to get pretty close and even take some photos!"
She nearly got a selfie with a Brazillian Wandering Spider, but it wandered out of shot at the last second.
"We have a spider in our hallway at the minute, the black house spiders that I have always hated the most. It's in the same area most days and I am managing OK. I would rather it not be there of course, but I am coping and getting on with my day. Previously I would have had to get someone to remove or kill it."
See? Peaceful coexistence! But here's a curious thing: although Rachael is still a little wary of the harmless house spider in her hall, here are just a few of the deadliest creatures in Costa Rica that her Subconscious mind wasn't remotely bothered about: Bull shark, coral snake, yellow eyelash viper, American crocodile, puma, jaguar, Fer-de-Lance snake... no, no problem with any of that lot! This shows how inconsistent the Subconscious mind can be when assessing danger! more about this
