One might think they need therapy when they are pregnant, there is enough going on in the pregnant woman's psyche to create an unbelievable amount of chaos, one can only declare "well she's pregnant".
Focus shifts, responses are lost, the "soft frame" of mind is evident everywhere!
With deeper issues, fears or phobic responses to experiences - this can be attended to rather effortlessly through Hypnosis & NLP and relieve the intensity of those "believed outcomes" so that the woman can relax and enjoy her pregnancy!
Fears are, for example, an indication of how wonderfully fast the brain learns a new behaviour. Often it just takes one 'bad' experience for the unconscious mind to generalize behaviours of being terrified of something that can last for years, sometimes a lifetime. Try rehearsing labour from this place, when you have no idea of what is coming and only other peoples stories to learn from.
The good news is that because the brain does learn to be scared so quickly, it can learn a different and more useful behaviour (not to be scared) just as quickly.
These techniques are rapid, comfortable and easy
It usually amazes people to hear they are just no longer fearful of the upcoming birth that the thoughts, feelings and behaviour can change so fast, often within a matter of minutes, and for good.
How Are You Going To Cure My Fear?For many years the only treatment available for people with intense fear was desensitisation. For example, if you had a fear of spiders you would gradually (very gradually) be introduced to the object you feared over a period of months, starting with tiny pictures, moving to slightly bigger pictures and eventually maybe a video and so forth. This was usually a painful process, when it worked at all, with people gradually getting used to the spiders whilst gritting their teeth and often more anchored into the fear than they were before!
Hypnotherapy has been the best approach for decades
The other treatment that had success was hypnotherapy, getting the person to deeply relax and build conditioned responses of calm whilst in a hypnotic trance, and/or/ using direct and indirect metaphor, embedded commands, getting the person to float back through time and 'come to terms' with their experiences amongst many others. Any or all of these techniques are still valid.
Then in the 1970's Richard Bandler, co - creator of NLP, after asking psychiatrists and psychologists what their 'most difficult' clients were and being told 'Phobics!(intense fear) Even talking to them about the phobia freaks them out,' informed them that he was going to find an easy way to cure them.
The psychologists were highly sceptical that this was possible. 'After all,' they said, 'we have been studying them for years'.
The point they had been missing is that they had been studying the one group of people in the world that did not know how to cure a phobia (intense fear) !
Studying the right people (ask a better question!)
Richard's approach was to find people who had once had a fear and then ask them how they got over it. He expected to find a few people but had hundreds of replies to newspaper adverts for 'ex-phobics' (it turns out that it is quite common for people to get over phobias by themselves) and they all said the same sort of thing - 'I used to have this terrible phobia but one day I said to myself 'enough is enough', I saw myself in the situation and I had to laugh, it was like the straw that broke the camel's back, and ever since that moment it hasn't bothered me a bit'.
And so the Birth of: 'NLP Fast Phobia Cure'. The treatment often takes just a few minutes to resolve even a severe and chronic phobia. (intense fear"
The treatment uses combinations of the fastest and most effective techniques that we have learned over the years and the number of sessions needed to resolve most common phobias is one, or very occasionally two.
