Hypnotherapy for arachnophobia - recommendations?

Postby SW12 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:46 pm

Hello
I'm about to head off to Australia for a month, and I'm so excited - but I'm also petrified of spiders. My phobia is so bad that I can't be in a room with even a small spider, or even a picture of a spider ! So I'm really worried about bumping into one of their famous huge or venomous ones while I'm out there.
Could anyone recommend a hypnotherapist locally that might be able to help (or failing which a good podcast or something that I could download?). Alternatively, any Aussies reading this please give me some reassurance that seeing a spider is pretty rare...??

I'm not sure if a "quick fix" is possible, but I happen to know Anna Jezuita is a skilled counsellor who specialises in treating phobias. She would definitely be worth speaking to, her number is 07515 271268, email is anna_jezuita@hotmail.com.

A friend of mine had a mega spider phobia and her hubby bought her a 1 day course to get rid of it ran at the zoo (I presume it was at the London Zoo). She said it worked like a dream and she even handled a spider at the end of it.

I've had a hypnotherapy session with Debs Davies to help me with anxiety. She's fantastic. She's based somewhere near Manchester so she did it via Skype for me and it really worked. Here is her Facebook page. It's worth contacting her and having a chat to see if you want to go ahead with it. https://www.facebook.com/debsdaviescoaching/#_=_   She is also a life coach.

Hi There, 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the recommended treatment for phobia's, and is very successful in it's approach. You can get intensive sessions to help you to overcome your fear. Have a look on the BABCP Find a Therapist website to make sure you get a qualified and accredited therapist. 

Have fun in Australia :)
