Is your life overshadowed by an intense fear of something which you know is actually safe and harmless?

Does this fear force you to avoid normal activities, causing inconvenience, frustration and embarrassment?

Do you have to rely on other people to rescue you from situations which are actually harmless?

Are you ready now to break free from this limitation, by working with me to overcome your phobia at my office in Plymouth city centre?

“I’m extremely grateful to Pete for the therapy that he has given to my daughter for severe phobia and anxiety. Within a couple of sessions, the positive change in her was dramatic. His approach was different to other hypnotherapist that we’ve tried and the only one which was effective. I would highly recommend him.” October 2020.

As you see here I overcame my own phobia of dogs!

I’ve been there myself. As a child I was terrified of dogs, and even as a young adult I went to great lengths to avoid them. Now I actually like dogs and enjoy their company as you can see from the photo! The bigger dog in the photo is a Siberian, as seen in the Game of Thrones TV series.

Having overcome a phobia myself I understand how it feels to be constantly on edge around something that’s actually harmless. Millions of people have this problem (about one person in every ten).

Phobias can limit peoples’ lives in so many ways. For instance:

Fear of public speaking in interviews, group presentations in college, or workplace meetings could hold back your education and career.

Fear of closed spaces can make travel in any vehicle a nightmare, affecting work, social life and holidays.

Fear of flying prevents many people from going abroad for holidays or family visits. This has affected even some world-famous entertainers, preventing them from touring outside their own country!

Fear of heights compels people to take long detours to avoid high bridges. Some even refuse hospital treatment if the clinic is on an upper floor!

Some people avoid certain jobs, or even having children, because they cannot tolerate the sight or sound of anyone being sick.

Others avoid the countryside or even city parks for fear of dogs or bees.

The list of phobias is almost endless. And phobias can affect anyone, including people who are generally courageous. A phobia is frustrating and embarrassing, especially when other people do not understand the intensity of fear which is experienced.

Whatever your phobia, overcoming it will open the way into a more satisfying life! And for 27 years I have been helping people to achieve this. My clients come to me from all over Devon, Plymouth, Exeter, Cornwall, and Somerset, sometimes even further. You can read some reviews of my work from former clients on my older website HERE

The total price for my whole “Overcoming a Phobia” course of therapy is £99.00. Having experienced a phobia myself when I was younger, I believe this to be a very worthwhile investment in your personal well-being. The fee is payable at the first session by bank transfer or cash. There is nothing more to pay after that.

This price covers the whole of your therapy, beginning with a first session lasting up to two hours.

I will not be giving you tedious long-winded lectures, telling you your fear is nonsensical, because you know that already.

Instead we will be targeting the fear itself, resetting your imagination to empower you instead of terrorising you.

Not everyone will be suitable for this package so you will need to contact me so I can assess whether you are suitable for this approach.

You can contact me via the contact form below. Please state clearly what you are afraid of and what is this fear preventing you from doing or enjoying.

Or you can phone me on 01752 829 436 and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. Please speak slowly and clearly giving your name and contact number.
