10 year phobia of the dentist - sorted!
"For 10 years I rarely visited the dentist and when I did I suffered severe panic attacks and if any treatment needed doing I needed to be referred to the hospital for general anaesthetic." - Sarah Tasane
All that changed for Sarah after discovering Hypnotherapy. Here is Sarah's account of her dental phobia, and what happened after Sarah decided to sort it for good!
The phobia and it's effects.
The issue I decided to seek hypnotherapy on was my fear of dentists. I had a bad experience as a young child which had caused the fear. For the next 10 years I rarely visited the dentist, and when I did I suffered severe panic attacks and if any treatment needed doing I needed to be referred to the hospital for general anaesthetic.
I tried other therapies; these had given techniques for while being at dentist, however with little success (still had severe panic attacks, nightmares leading up to appointment and any treatment still needed to be done while under general anaesthetic). I then decided to give hypnotherapy a go, and consulted Claire. My experience with hypnosis was relaxed and informal.
The results of the Hypnotherapy
The results have been amazing, I had no panic attacks or nightmares and have had regular dentist appointments. I recently had a filling done with the same results - my dentist was amazed and in shock afterwards. I'm doing really well I've now had all my treatment at the dentist.
The changes for me have been more than at the dentist. I no longer have to block my ears or leave the room if someone talking about dentists!"
I caught up with Sarah two years on from her Hypnotherapy treatment and this is what she had to say -
"The difference in me is amazing. I had a filling at the weekend and was fine and out within 15 minutes. The dentist can't believe the difference. I still use the techniques you gave me for other things too."
