Releasing Phobias

Treating phobias successfully. Live the life you deserve.

Free yourself from Fears, Phobias and Panic Attacks using Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness

As a Registered Hypnotherapist, I've been treating phobias successfully for over a decade now, helping my clients to resolve their fears. I can also help you virtually or from my practice in Weybridge, Surrey.

If you have a phobia, you may have experienced a panic attack as a direct result of exposure to your fear. A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear or paranoia that then triggers a severe physical reaction that generally includes a rapid heartbeat. Clients often relay that a panic attack makes them feel they are losing control, having a heart attack, or even dying, even in the complete absence of any danger or threat.

Treating phobias:

Below is a list of some of the more common phobias that people tend to suffer with and that I treat regularly at my clinic in Weybridge, Surrey:


If you're afraid of being out in the open, or if you continually attempt to avoid leaving the house or find yourself making excuses to family and friends not to go somewhere, then you may be agoraphobic. Sometimes, it's obvious; other times, it's more subtle and disguises itself as something else. Either way, I can help you to address the issue and begin living the life that you want.

Social Phobia:

Do you turn down invites from friends? Do social situations make you nervous? Or do you find yourself hiding away at a party or stuck in a corner talking to a potted plant? You may have a social phobia if you avoid speaking with people in social situations. This is a common type of phobia - and it's also very treatable.

Fear of Flying:

Do you avoid going on trips overseas? Or do you book flights only to cancel later? Do you need alcohol or drugs to help you fly? Work with me, and I can help you travel without fear.

Fear of Spiders:

Arachnophobia is a widespread phobia, and I treat many clients at my clinic in Weybridge, Surrey. So, if you avoid going in the loft, basement, or garden shed for fear of meeting an eight-legged friend, get in touch. I can help you to overcome this phobia.

Fear of Needles:

If you have shied away from having a vaccine or make every excuse not to have an injection, then you may have a phobia of needles. This can impact on the quality of your life. But there is no need to fear the needle. I can help you take the necessary steps to overcome your fear.

Fear of Vomiting: 

Emetophobia is a genuine phobia and, for many people, a debilitating condition when left untreated. So, if you fear travel in case you get sick or avoid eating out for fear of getting ill, get in touch. I can help you begin to accept dinner invitations once more!

Fear of Heights: 

Acrophobia is another common phobia. Perhaps you fear everyday things like climbing a ladder or standing on a chair. Or you could avoid going to the top of a tall building or refuse to go to the top of the local landmark. But you can enjoy the view again. Talk to me about treating your phobia.

Fear of Snakes:

Ophidiophobia is the fear of snakes. You may find yourself unable to look at snakes on the television. Or you may be scared easily by something on the floor that 'looks' like a snake and makes you panic. Talk to me about letting go of this fear.

Fear of the Dentist:

If you have a fear of going to the dentist, there's a strong possibility that your teeth aren't as healthy as they should be. You may even prefer to live in pain than visit the dentist. Don't let your oral health suffer; I treat this phobia regularly. All you need to do is get in touch, and you'll smile again in no time.

Whatever your fear or phobia, I can help, working with you virtually or from my practice in Weybridge, Surrey. Contact me today.

What my Clients Say



I was recommended Joel by a friend for my sons phobia of dogs. We completed 6 sessions of hypnotherapy over a few months with fantastic results. My son no longer feels unsafe and anxious around dogs and he is able to enjoy walks and visiting new parks without fear taking over. Joel also provided a sleep meditation audio that my son requests to listen to every night and hes asleep within 10 minutes. I found Joel friendly, professional and engaging and my son was comfortable and even looked forward to the sessions. Im very grateful for the experience and the changes it has made to our life. Thanks Joel!



Since my sessions with Joel (to overcome fear of injections and the dentist), I have been to the dentists, had a local anaesthetic in hospital, and booked in to have a procedure at the dentists. Im slowly but surely getting there and feel calmer overall about injections. Joel was very approachable and worked flexibly around my availability. Thanks again, Joel.



I saw Joel for some hypnosis sessions just before he moved to Surrey. I had been in a car accident and was having a hard time getting back behind the wheel. As a Builder I'd always needed the use of a van but I just wasn't able to put the accident behind me. My Father was very into Hypnosis, so I knew that it does work for some, but I was still surprised at how well it worked for me. I'd highly recommend Joel, he comes across as professional but laid back, and he's easy to relax and talk with. Although I haven't bought a new vehicle yet, I am hiring them when necessary, so the techniques he used were definitely effective.
