Hypnotherapy for Water Phobia

Posted: Thursday, November 7, 2019

"You are a miracle worker!  I'll expand on that tomorrow as I've just finished a brilliant swimming session and I'm knackered but elated! Thank you!"

Although he certainly wanted help with his problem, before the hypnotherapy session, Angus was skeptical.  After all, this wasn't just a fear of water but a full-blown phobia, and as every phobic knows, that makes it extremely difficult to face the object of your fear.  Even after the hypnosis, this skepticism persisted, as I told him it probably would until he actually went into the swimming pool:

"Once in the pool the first thing I noticed was the lack of anxiety and dread... at the other end of the pool I turned around and immediately swam back again - not done that for ages.  And so on and on throughout the session - I swam, I felt absolutely no panic whatsoever, indeed quite the opposite - I really enjoyed being in the water and swimming - it actually felt marvellous and a whole new experience.

"I can't thank you enough - you have an amazing talent and you have made such a massive difference to my swimming.  Thank you thank you thank you.  Angus"    


A phobic or anxiety reaction is just the brain trying to protect you.  It is the Subconscious mind that controls emotions and emotional reactions, which is why we have no conscious control over them.  That's why people say: "I can't help the way I feel, can I?"

Well, you can't very easily change it yourself, but through the hypnotherapy process, the Subconscious can adjust it on request and has no objection to doing so: it didn't realise it was over-reacting!  more about this

Do you have an irrational fear, suffer from anxiety or panic attacks?  Just one session here at Central Hypnotherapy Stockport, (South Manchester) will be enough to remove that, and then you can be free, more comfortable and much more confident!  Being skeptical certainly doesn't stop it from working, as Angus found out for himself, so why not call now for more information or to book an appointment - we're open even in a full lock down and attending appointments for health services is a legitimate reason to travel, so you're okay!
