Phobias and Panic Attacks

“Yesterday I got on the elevator with my colleague. I never even thought about the elevator…I simply did it like it was some normal thing. I’m so psyched!”
– Tanya Scanlan, Danvers

“I’ve seen a number of spiders and I haven’t had the same reaction. I think they ‘re gross looking. But I’m not really that afraid of them anymore.”
– Megan Claremont, Reading

“I would, and have, without reservation recommend the treatment to anyone who has been limited by a phobia.”
– Karl Orrette, Weymouth  

How I help my clients overcome phobias and panic attacks-


Some of the phobias I’ve helped clients resolve include –

– fear of driving– fear of heights
– fear of insects– fear of vomiting
– fear of panic attacks– fear of snakes
– fear of doctors/dentists– fear of public speaking
– fear of flying– fear of things near the eyes
– fear of needles– fear of elevators
– fear of enclosed spaces– fear of tunnels
The Problem
Logically you know you’re safe. You know (and your friends and family have probably told you many times) it isn’t going to hurt you. Consciously…rationally…intellectually… you’re safe. You should feel fine. But you don’t. There’s a part of your mind that sends a very powerful signal of fear. Your heart races. Your stomach clenches. You’re terrified.

The Solution
To use hypnosis to work directly with the part of your mind that’s sending that fear signal. So you have the chance to bring help directly to that subconscious/emotional part of your mind — the part that doesn’t care about all those reasons why you should feel fine. So you have the chance to genuinely SOLVE the problem where it’s happening rather than just talking about it or learning techniques to manage it.

I can’t say how long it would take for you to resolve your phobia. You may work slowly and carefully, or you may work quickly. Some problems are straightforward, some turn out to be more complicated.  My goal is for my clients to find a lasting solution as quickly as possible without using ‘band-aid’ approaches or cutting corners.
The vast majority of phobics I’ve worked with have solved their problem. It’s been more work for some than others, and many have resolved other issues in the process. There are people who don’t get good results, though. Fortunately, I’m usually able to identify them before they start, so they can find someone who’s a better fit for them.
I structure my fees so that clients get great results. 

I charge a flat fee because I find –

Clients get better results when they commit up front to spend the money/time it takes to solve their problem (results aren’t as good when people dabble and  “try hypnosis”).

Clients get better results when they’re not worried about how much time they’re taking.

Clients get better results when they’re mid-process and they’re not worried about how much more it might cost them to get to the point where they’re successful.

So here, clients pay one flat fee to resolve their phobia.  It’s one price, regardless of how many sessions it takes to solve the problem completely.   ‘Solved’ as both defined by and judged by the client.  Fees vary depending on the situation and the severity of the problem.  Ideally the value the client places on the solution matches or exceeds the fee.

I guarantee all phobia work with a half-back refund.  If a client reaches the ten session mark and they’re making good progress, no problem.  We continue until the work is finished.  If they’ve done that much work and they don’t feel like they’ve made progress, I guarantee the work by refunding half the fee.

It’s also guaranteed if a client has a problem down the road. “Relapses” are rare, but if they ever happen – whether it’s three weeks, three months or three years later – they’re 100% covered.  The client is back here in the office and we resolve whatever we may have missed.
