phobia treatment toronto

Common treatment options include Phobia Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, EMDR, and sometimes medication, all aimed at helping individuals manage and overcome their irrational fears.

If you want to overcome a phobia or an emotionally charged event, CALL ME to see if this is the right fit for you.

What all these "solutions" lack is that they don't work with the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis & NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Techniques change the representation of the phobia at the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, so you don't have to spend months or even years talking the phobia out with someone.

As an example of the power of Hypnosis & NLP, following a car accident, a family member of mine would feel nervous every time they got in the car.

How long do you think it would take to not feel this nervousness anymore? 



If Ever?

It took us ONE session, and they are now able to drive in their car again.

What Is A Phobia?

A phobia is an intense and irrational fear of a specific object, situation, activity, or living being.

People with phobias experience overwhelming and uncontrollable feelings of fear when exposed to the source of their fear, even if the perceived threat is not actually dangerous or life-threatening.

These fears can disrupt a person's daily life, causing significant distress and avoidance behaviours.


Phobias can be categorized into three main types:

  1. Specific phobias:

    These are phobias related to particular objects or situations, such as fear of spiders (arachnophobia), fear of heights (acrophobia), fear of flying (aviophobia), or fear of confined spaces (claustrophobia).

    These phobias can significantly interfere with a person's daily life and functioning.

    People with specific phobias often go to great lengths to avoid the object or situation they fear, which can impact their quality of life, limit their activities, and cause a great deal of distress.


  2. Social phobia:

    Social anxiety disorder is characterized by an intense and persistent fear of social situations where the individual might be exposed to scrutiny, judgment, or potential embarrassment.

    The fear is often related to concerns about behaving in a way that could lead to negative evaluations by others.

    Common situations that trigger social anxiety include public speaking, meeting new people, participating in group activities, and even everyday interactions.

    Individuals with social phobia may fear being judged, embarrassed, or humiliated in front of others, leading them to avoid social gatherings and situations.


  3. Agoraphobia:

    Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by an intense fear of situations or places where escape might be difficult or embarrassing, or where help might not be readily available if a panic attack or other distressing symptoms were to occur.

    This fear often leads to avoidance of certain situations or places, which can significantly impact a person's daily life and functioning.

    Common situations or places that individuals with agoraphobia might avoid include:

    - Public Transportation

    - Open Spaces

    - Enclosed Spaces

    - Being Alone

    - Some people with agoraphobia might also fear enclosed spaces, like elevators or tunnels, due to the potential for feeling trapped

    Large open spaces, such as parks or open fields, might evoke anxiety due to the feeling of vulnerability and the fear of having a panic attack without a safe place to retreat

    - Crowded Places

    - Buses, trains, airplanes, and other forms of public transportation can evoke anxiety related to the lack of control and the perceived inability to escape.

    - Malls, theatres, restaurants, and other crowded venues can trigger anxiety due to the fear of being overwhelmed or unable to escape if needed.

The development of phobias can be influenced by life experiences and learned behaviours.

While some level of fear is a normal and adaptive response to potential dangers, phobias involve an exaggerated and persistent fear response that can negatively impact a person's quality of life.
