Fears and Phobias
Over the years, I have worked with so very many people suffering from various fears and phobias.
Women facing childbirth want a happy experience but have heard the "war" stories from others. After learning how to relax and getting past the fears, they report back that the birth experience was wonderful, surprisingly peaceful.
One of the most daunting is the fear of something that we need, like food or fluids. We can get ourselves twisted up into fears that turn into phobias, that feel so real, but we know are irrational. The frustration builds on itself until it feels as if we will always feel that fear.
Others have anxiety around other people, or nature, insects or animals. It all feels so real because it becomes real. You are not crazy.
Peace is possible. It is possible to get past those fears, that visceral, physical reaction that is getting in your way from living a full, happy life.
Learning a combination of relaxation tools and talk therapy, we can help desensitize you to the root fear so you can get past it and experience long-lasting relief! You can also learn the tools that will empower you to get past flare-ups and feel better, quickly.
