Fear of Birds  and Pigeons

Fear or phobia of birds is actually not that uncommon and if you watch in a park or a town centre you will be able to observe this, this fear will be observed, and experienced to varying degrees. Having said that the fear of birds or Ornithophobia can be extremely debilitating and can cause people to avoid certain situation and places.

Birds see us as more or less zombie-like statue lumbering, slumbering robots which move so ridiculously slowly that we’re more or less stood still!

However from a human point of view people suffering from a bird phobia feels that the birds will swoop down at any time and will fly into them. On a logical and rational level people know that these birds cannot and will not harm them but at some level they will be in total fear and terror.

The normal response I would expect from helping you to overcome this using NLP and hypnosis is that you will become a lot more comfortable in situations where there are birds, you will probably not want to hold them or become a pigeon keeper but not many people would do this anyway. The response I’d expect is you being able to walk in and around shopping arcades and be able to.

What is a phobia?

 A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of, and a desire to avoid, certain object/s, animals, events or situations. It is considered by mainstream psychology that the only 2 fears that we are all born with are of sudden loud noises and of height, any fear of heights is actually a fear of falling.

Other people consider that you are not born with a phobia – and that it’s a learned response. A learned response which has by situations in the past, of which almost always have a root cause, which you then react to when confronted by the phobic stimulus. With phobias even the anticipation, of thoughts or by thinking of the situation will often be enough to provoke the reaction. The person will then experience feelings, reaction and responses of anxiety, fear, panic and panic attacks.

Using hypnotherapy, NLP, positive psychology and EFT I can help you to re-programme your thoughts, change your associations and replace them with new, more appropriate feelings, reaction, behaviours, emotions and thoughts.
