Case Report #2: Phobia release utilizing NLP, Time Line Therapy®, and Hypnosis.
A client came to me about her irrational fear of cats. She had her phobia since early childhood. The client is 34 years old and was ready to let go of her fear. She deeply desired to travel and to be phobia free on her exciting journeys.
Consequently, her life’s quality was affected; she looked for cats everywhere and feared the encounter would leave her frozen from fear with severe anxiety attacks. She couldn’t look at cat pictures or videos, not even animated kitty videos.
Preparing for the phobia release
First, to work with the client efficiently, I ordained a task to complete. When she finished the task successfully, I utilized various NLP techniques to loosen her grip on the problem.
Second, I utilized Isochronic tones during my sessions to aid my client’s access to his unconscious mind and to keep her calm.
Third, I guided my client to release all negative emotions; anger, sadness, fear, hurt, and guilt, along with limiting beliefs from his past with Time Line Therapy®. Since a phobia is an extreme fear, she showed improvement right after our first session. She could look at still pictures of cats, which had already been a vast improvement.
Fast Phobia Release
After cleaning up her past with Time Line Therapy®, we established a resource anchor for her to create a calm, cool, and collected state of mind. I guided my client through the Fast Phobia Model. We repeated four hypnosis sessions after the Fast Phobia Release, and her improvements surprised her.
I want to emphasize here that she didn’t want to like or love cats or touch them; she wanted to be “normal” around them—average in her terms in her world.
Lastly, after four sessions, the client and I visited a pet store, where she observed the cats and was “normal” around them. She concluded that she had never been this close to cats, let alone feel calm and collected, with a confident state of mind. She declared her consultations with me a success.
The client was assigned to practice using her resource anchor and look at cat pictures and videos independently. Per the last report, she is “normal” around cats, doesn’t prefer to be around them, and has no desire to touch them.
