The most common fear in the world
So many people have a fear of spiders (arachnophobia) and I believe it is the most common fear in the world, I too once had a fear of spiders, to the point where I have been teased by people who have caught a spider and then threatened to put it on me as a joke and I would beg and plead for them not to with tears rolling down my face.
One day I thought enough was enough. I designed a programme of therapy techniques, ones that I teach to clients, to use on myself. It took a few weeks but a day came when it was time, I went and faced my fear. I visited a local reptile shop that sells tarantulas and asked for them to help me. Now over my fears, I want to help you!
It's time to overcome your fear
More often a fear of spiders is a 'learned behaviour', which means we pick up the fear as a child from someone close to us, perhaps a parent or sibling, however, there are occasions where someone had an uncomfortable experience with a spider to which the fear has been installed.
Because we are not born with this fear (or any fear) we can 'unlearn' these behaviours and the mind can be rewired to let go of the fear preventing your loved ones becoming fearful of spiders.
I want to help you overcome a fear of spiders, so I have designed a 2 hours course for small groups as well as private individual sessions.
I currently own 3 tarantulas and they will be helping me to help you to make that huge step in changing your life.
My tarantulas have been chosen specifically to be used in demonstrations to be handled because they are docile and generally slow movers.
Group session structure
- An educational and informative talk about the true facts and figures of spiders.
- Q & A - Your questions answered.
- 15 minute break - tea, coffee, water and some biscuits will be provided.
- Coping mechanism - the group will be taken through a technique to help you overcome a fear of spiders.
- Get involved - time to hold a spider! You are of course encouraged to hold a spider at the end of the session but will not be forced to hold one if you do not want to.
If you to meet Audrey, Esme and Penelope, they would love to meet you!
