Phobia release utilizing NLP, Time Line Therapy®, and Hypnosis.
A client came to me about her irrational fear of cats. She had her phobia since early childhood. The client is 34 years old and was ready to let go of her fear. She had a deep desired to travel and wanted to be phobia free on her exciting journeys.
Consequently, her life’s quality was affected; she was looking for cats everywhere and feared the encounter will leave her frozen from fear with serious anxiety attacks. She couldn’t look at any cat’s picture or video either. Not even kitty videos.
Preparing for the phobia release
To work with the client efficiently I ordained a task to complete. After this task was successfully completed, I utilized various NLP techniques to loosen her grip around the problem.
Also, I utilized Isochronic tones during my sessions to aid my client’s access to his unconscious mind and to keep her calm.
Next, I guided my client to release all negative emotions; anger, sadness, fear, hurt, and guilt along with limiting beliefs from his past with Time Line Therapy®. Since a phobia is an extreme fear, she already showed improvement right after our first session. She could look at still pictures of cats which were a huge improvement for her already.
Fast Phobia Release
After cleaning up her past with Time Line Therapy®, we established a resource anchor for her to create a calm, cool, and collected state of mind. I guided my client through the Fast Phobia Model. We repeated 4 hypnosis sessions after the Fast Phobia Release. Her improvements surprised her.
I would like to emphasize here that she didn’t want to like or love cats or touch them; what she wanted was to be “normal” around them. Normal in her terms in her world.
After four sessions, client and I visited a pet store, where she observed the cats and was “normal” around them. She concluded that she has never been this close to cats let alone feel calm and collected, with a confident state of mind. She declared her consultations with me a success.
The client was assigned to practice using her resource anchor and look at cat pictures and videos on her own. Per the last report, she is “normal” around cats. She doesn’t prefer to be around them and has no desire to touch them.
