Hypnotherapy for Phobias

What is holding you back? Fear of flying? Elevators? Spiders? Open spaces? People? Confined spaces? Snakes? Clowns? Water? The different phobias that people suffer from are as varied as the people who experience them.

Many clients who come to Hypnotherapy Dubai for hypnotherapy to cure their phobia report that they have tried techniques such as facing their fear or trying to focus on their breathing with little or no success. The reason that these types of techniques don’t really work as a phobia cure is because they rely on the power of the conscious rational mind, which is only 5% of the mind. A phobia is an irrational fear of a specific thing or situation, these feelings originate in the subconscious mind and by virtue of being irrational they can not be overcome through analysis or conscious effort.

When hypnotherapy is used as a phobia cure we access the part of the mind where the phobia actually is, we access previously hidden subconscious files so that we can effectively work on the issue. It is from these buried files that the cause of the fear can be uncovered and eliminated.

I'm a Board Certified Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, one of the oldest and largest hypnosis organizations in the world, I have trained with world class hypnotists in Dubai, UK and USA and my practice upholds the highest level of ethics and standards. I use hypnosis to help people to uncover the subconscious cause of the symptom, emotion or habit that they wish to change. We then use different methods to neutralise the cause of the symptoms and learn a new positive behavior. This is hypnosis in a nutshell.


About Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a natural and pleasant state of mind. It involves very focused attention and concentration. When a person goes into hypnosis they enter a state that allows the conscious mind to quiet itself which enables them to access the power of their subconscious mind.

It is our deeply held subconscious patterns and beliefs that drive our decisions and shape our lives. When you want to make a lasting, positive change in your life, it is these subconscious patterns that must be addressed. Through hypnosis it is possible to find the root cause of the issue and incorporate positive new thoughts and ideas into the subconscious. This enables a profound change to occur.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful vehicle through which you can tackle obstructions in your subconscious and permanently banish them from your life..

  • It is impossible to get stuck in hypnosis.
  • While in hypnosis you are fully awake and can hear everything.
  • Hypnosis is not a truth serum, you will not reveal your secrets.

The Ultimate You Series
Hypnotherapy works like magic




For public speaking anxiety, we build confidence, change negative thought patterns and prepare clients mentally to expect successful outcomes. Combining visualization of successful situations helps foresee the best outcomes. Most clients need 2-4 sessions for long-term speaking confidence.

For phobias, we typically recommend 1-3 sessions to identify and reframe the irrational fear. The key to stopping the fight-flight response is to bring the subconscious pattern to conscious awareness. Only then can new brain connections be formed. 

We use relaxation, visualization, regression, inner child work, future pacing, forgiveness therapy, EFT and suggestion techniques to access the subconscious and create positive changes. Sessions are personalized and I use a combination of different methods, including life coaching and NLP to get the best result.

In a weight loss hypnosis session, we eliminate the root psychological causes of overeating and reprogram more healthy eating habits. Clients often report significantly reduced cravings and increased portion control after just one session.

For panic attacks, we first find the root cause of the anxiety in the subconscious mind through regression. We use inner child work to reprogram outdated beliefs and neutralize unwanted emotions. This allows clients to regain control and live free from panic symptoms. Most clients see improvement within 1-3 sessions.

I do a 3 session hypnosis package for quitting smoking. Most people never smoke again after the first session but the 3 sessions ensures that we tackle all the emotions, withdrawals and triggers that might come up.  We generally schedule the first two sessions within a couple of days of each other, the 3rd session is usually about a week after the 2nd session. 

My success rate for clients quitting smoking through hypnotherapy is very high. Typically, over 85% of my clients who smoke cigarettes or vape quit permanently. We reprogram the subconscious mind to break the psychological addiction to smoking. 

Hypnotherapy is extremely effective and works very quickly. The power of the subconscious mind should not be underestimated. Virtually all of our behavior, thoughts and feelings are driven by this part of our mind. Hypnosis accesses this part of the mind, the very source of the issue, to make the changes that need to be made..

Your body will be relaxed and your mind focused and receptive. You may feel like you are in a dreamy state. You will likely become more aware of how your subconscious is making you respond. Everybody experiences hypnosis differently but people generally find being hypnotized a calming and relaxing experience that they are keen to repeat..

When in hypnosis you retain complete control and will not do or say anything that you would not elect to do of your own choice. You are conscious and able to hear the hypnotherapist’s voice, you can also end the experience at any time should you feel the need. The hypnotic state can only be maintained by mutual co-operation between the client and the therapist.  You cannot be hypnotized against your will..

In the hands of a trained professional, it is a natural and beneficial experience that is free from drugs and is totally safe. Hypnosis is a state which you drift in and out of  every single day. Just as you wouldn’t get “stuck” in a day dream, you won’t get stuck in hypnosis..

Anybody can be hypnotized – some people more easily than others. Improvement comes with practice and someone who starts slowly can often become a better subject than a fast starter..
