Fear of heights

Fear of heights? Without further ado – this photo sent in by a client of mine proves the hypnotherapy can be rapid and effective. He was about to go on a skiing holiday but had difficulty walking along a mountain ridge even without snow and had experienced difficulty in dealing with the impression he might give to his kids and possibly pass on this fear/ This could extend to travelling in a clear-sided lift or elevator if they were with him. On his skiing holiday recently in North America this is where he go to with his friends courtesy of a helicopter-

Thanks for your help. I can categorically say that it has a positive effect on my ability to function at height. I attach a picture of me on a ridge in ******* after having been dropped there by Helicopter.
The trip has proved to be more extreme than I imagined but I have been fine.
A million thank yous.


How we got there

Typically in the past this form of height phobia has taken anything from 1 to 3 sessions to get the person confident again to deal with being high up somewhere from the milder cases where the fear was of climbing up a steep hill gradient to more difficult situations like a fireman faced. In this case he took 2 sessions, the first of these being a straightforward suggestion therapy session with an MP3 recording to use at home and the second being a fairly practical session using principles and techniques of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Hypnosis and some ‘homework’ to test out. His own homework above shows promise!
