This ‘Fear of Snakes' Guided Meditation & Hypnotherapy session is aimed for people who have a mild fear of snakes or a more extreme, abnormal fear of snakes called ophidiophobia. About a third of adult humans are ophidiophobic, making this the one of the most common reported phobias. However, it's unusual to see snakes all the time, so it's interesting that some people still have an overwhelming disgust or hatred towards snakes.This fear can be a learnt behaviour, a bad experience or a survival technique when we feel like our life is at threat. In this session we use a technique called hypnotic desensitisation this includes relaxation skills to help face your fear of snakes whilst in a safe environment, think more rationally about snakes and we will ask you to use your imagination to picture yourself behaving how you want to around snakes. By doing so, you will find that the same feelings of relaxation remain with you in the outside world as well as during this session. We recommend that you listen to our session at least four times so you can really compound the positive messaging, override the old beliefs and help your mind create new neural pathways to feeling less anxious about snakes.
