Hypnotherapy for Anxiety, Phobias and Fears

Anxiety, Fears and Phobias can ruin lives. For some people this means that they cannot do the normal, everyday things they used to be able to do. For some, just going out of the house produces anxiety and stress that is so strong they simply stop going out.


Ordinary activities like going in a lift, going to the dentist, or going abroad on a plane are just too frightening for some people to even think about. Some fears can be common – spiders, heights, needles. Some fears can be extremely unusual.


Stress has become an almost inevitable consequence of 21st Century living. The job, the family, trying to “juggle” too many “balls”, trying to be successful at too many things all at once – the reasons for our being stressed are many. Poor health, poor eating habits, too little exercise and not enough sleep and relaxation time can all contribute to our high stress levels.

Depression and anxiety can develop following a trauma, accident or bereavement, or from an overload of stress.


The unconscious mind, the part of the mind that holds our memories, our imagination and our habits, works to ensure that we are continuously protected from harm. It remembers to breathe continuously, to swim in water, to drive a car.


Fortunately, once it has learned a skill or habit it does not forget it. So, once you have learned to swim or drive a car you will not forget. Unfortunately, the unconscious mind remembers “bad” habits too. It remembers how to smoke a cigarette, how to drink alcohol, or how to be afraid of certain situations. And it does this because, at one time, even bad habits made you feel better!


When your unconscious mind creates stress, fear or anxiety it does so for what seems, at the time, to be a good reason. Unfortunately, it made a mistake. Maybe you did once fall downstairs – but that does not mean you should never stand at the top of a staircase again in case you should fall.


Or maybe you once did get stuck in a lift. But that is a rare occurrence and it is unlikely to happen to you again. Maybe nothing happened to you. Perhaps you were there when something happened to someone else and you noticed their fear. Perhaps an adult screamed at a mouse when you were a child. Surely, if an adult is frightened, then a child has to be frightened too – don’t they?


Even the thought of something bad happening, or of failure, can spark stress or fear. What if you go on stage and make a fool of yourself? What if you say the wrong thing? Of course, the more you ask yourself these questions the more your imagination will show you how your body would react “if”.


Your mind does not know the difference between what is really happening and what is imagined. So imagining the pain, the fear, the embarrassment means your body will actually feel it as though it were really happening. If you’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night sweating, with your heart pounding, in that state where you think that the dream was real even though you are now awake – that is the power of the unconscious imagination at work. Because you were being chased in a dream you will understand how the imagination can affect the physical body when you are awake!


So, if we explained to your unconscious mind that it had made a mistake, that it didn’t have to protect you by making you fearful, anxious or stressed, but would be better protecting you from something worse – the negative effects of the fear, anxiety and stress – would that be better?


Of course it would!


We do this using hypnosis for anxiety, your phobia or fears. We literally re-programme your unconscious mind – for good!

In May 2016, I visited Elaine Marsh who cured me of my thirty-seven year old nail-and-finger-biting-habit in a single hour-long hypnotherapy session.  I now have nails, smooth fingers and beautiful-looking hands.  Up until my session with Elaine Marsh, I had tried giving up this demeaning habit on many occasions but to no avail.  I cannot recommend Elaine’s healing, and habit-breaking, skills more strongly.’   Alistair Carr, August 2016.



“Amazing – 2 sessions of hypnosis with Elaine cured my 20 years fear of the dentist and enabled me to have a crown implanted with no sedation. I felt so much more confident about going to the dentist. I am almost looking forward to my next visit to the dentist!” – Andy, Tilehurst, Berkshire



Hi Elaine, I‘ve just got back from Ireland about half an hour ago and the flight going out and the flight coming back was fine felt very comfortable, thank you once again for helping me to sort out my fear of flying.  I will certainly recommend you to any of my friends, take care, all my regards,

Ian Gee, Bracknell, Berkshire


Since our session, my life has changed completely!! I’m so thankful to you, you will never understand fully, what a difference it has made. I’m not embarrassed to go to nice restaurants now knowing I don’t have to pick my food to death. Also feel confident eating round friends houses and I know I will try anything they put in front of me now, where as before I would make out I’d eaten or I wasn’t hungry so I didn’t get embarrassed not eating their food as I know if I did try it I would of gagged. 

I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been and would go as far to say I’m in love with eating fruit and salad! It took a while for me to be confident in trying veg, but little by little even that’s getting better.

Thank you so much again !!
