Treatment for Phobias in Scotland
If you are looking for treatment for Phobias in Scotland, I can help you.
First of all, to help you understand if it is phobias that you are experiencing, here is some helpful information that will guide you. Below that I have outlined some of the treatment options that I can offer you.
What are Phobias?
A phobia is an extreme fear or anxiety reaction brought on by an object or a situation. They are often viewed as irrational fears, but are VERY real for the individual experiencing them. Like most anxiety or fear reactions, these are perfectly understandable reactions for people to have.
The reaction is considered a phobia when it becomes disproportionate to the risk involved. One obvious example is a spider phobia: you probably know that the spider is not poisonous and is highly unlikely to bite you, yet the fear remains real. The other criteria for a fear becoming a phobia is that it lasts a long time, likely more than a few months, and that it causes disruption to your daily life.

Treatment for Phobias
If you’re looking for treatment for Phobias in Scotland, it is crucial to realise that no single treatment fits all. The treatment that will be best for you is one that will be based upon a detailed understanding of what stresses you are experiencing, the lifestyle choices that you have made (or are seeking), and how your mind links with your body to generate the symptoms you suffer from. The first stage of any treatment is working with you to understand these vital factors.
It is, of course, very likely that a combination of treatment protocols will suit your unique circumstances rather than simply adopting one strategy. The key to my approach is to develop a deep understanding of your personal needs and circumstances and to adapt the treatment approach as your own needs change through the treatment process.
Here are three examples of treatment for phobias that I offer:
Coaching as a Treatment for Phobias in Scotland
A central belief underpinning coaching is that we possess inner wisdom and have all answers within us. The coach is there to help you access them, using various techniques such as NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), talking therapies, journaling, and mindfulness meditation.
Coaching is beneficial because it provides clarity whenever you feel confused about your issue, are stuck in a pattern, struggle to make a change, or see no direction or hope. It will help you get motivated, raise your self-awareness, understand and change your thinking patterns, perceptions, and behaviours and learn new skills.
Cognitive-Emotional Therapies as a Treatment for Phobias in Scotland
Voicing what happens in your mind and how it makes you feel and behave will help you make sense of your troubles and their source and notice unhelpful patterns. Understanding all this, combined with therapeutic techniques, can help you make positive changes, take greater control of your life and improve your awareness and confidence.
Cognitive-Emotional therapies can help with difficult life events such as loss, relationship problems, painful past events, destructive feelings such as anger, low self-esteem or shame, mental health problems, and long-term physical health ailments.
Alternative Medicine as a Treatment for Phobias in Scotland
My range includes NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), EFT (emotional freedom technique, or meridian tapping), vibrational medicine, aromatherapy (in the form of essences), mindfulness meditation, traditional Chinese medicine, radionics, dowsing for health, energy healing, and numerology.
