    Default Getting rid of fears/phobias?

    Was talking to a friend about this tonight, and were talking about if it is possible to get rid of a fear... and if so how?

    Mines spiders, absolutely hate them!

    Some people swear by hypnotherapy. I've got a niece who's training to be one at the moment, and I have a bet with her that she can't cure my fear of heights!
    There's also aversion therapy (I think's that's what it's called) where the sufferer is given gradual controlled exposure to their fear. So they'd start you on money spiders and work up!

    I saw at TV programme where people were "cured" of phobias by suggestion and mental execises.

    There were about 10 people in a large basket attached to a crane. The crane was raised and they had to say stop when they felt uncomfortable. All had a fear of heights so it was less than 20 feet before the panic attacks set in.

    Then they did the exercises for a few hours. There was one where they had to mentally picture themselves in the basket at the top of the crane. Then thay had to imagine the feeling of fear was locked up in a safe which was thrown away.

    Second session in the basket all of them went straight to the top and were wandering around the basket without a care in the world waving to people on the ground. Can't remember the height but it was very high.

    Having seen Derrin Brown live and experienced personally how powerful suggestion can be it does seem possible that this does work.

    I total agree Steve, this has worked with a couple of my friends that where scared of flying...

    I was scared of heights, till I went up with one of my vendors that took me micro lighting for nearly half an hour...

    I do not seem to have problems with heights, went on the London Eye recently; it feel great...
