It is a well-known fact that hypnotherapy is a good treatment for phobias and it works through removing the subconscious pattern of the phobia. The most common technique is the Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) , which see’s the patient sent into a deep state of relaxation whilst the hypnotist retrains the subconscious mind to respond to the phobia in a different way.
The rewind technique is a fairly new method of hypnotherapy treatment and has proven highly effective no matter how long the person has suffered from the phobia. After the hypnotherapist has induced the patient into the state of hypnosis, they guide the patient through images and steps that act to “rewind” the phobia. The hypnotherapist does not need to know how the phobia first started and does not need to know any of the symptoms the patient is suffering from. All the hypnotherapist must know is how to guide patients through the Rewind Technique to help them overcome their fear.
There are many benefits of using this technique, the first being that it is fast and effective. It improves quality of life and can reduce use of prescription medication that is often used to treat the symptoms of the phobia. This technique can also be used with people who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder.
