Arachnophobia (fear of spiders)
I had a very strong fear of spiders, my mum is friends with Jackie and she explained her hypnotherapy course. I hadn’t heard of it before but wanted something to calm my fear down! Jackie gave me this super relaxing CD which I listened to every night. It makes you sleepy and before you know it your head hits the pillow! On the CD Jackie talks you through different scenes, which I was surprised to find had nothing to do with spiders, you may fall asleep but your subconscious mind is aware of the CD. After several weeks of listening to the CD Jackie talks to you about how you want to feel about your fear and you tell her your experiences and how you want to cope. The hypnotherapy process has really helped to reduce my phobia and now I can calmly call for my parents to pick up a spider without crying! I can ignore the spindly critters as long as there’s not too many and call for help, even now I am persevering and my aim is to be able to pick one up in a cup.
