The BHRTI has developed a series of short niche courses due to a demand for more in-depth and comprehensive training in specific areas.  The first in this series, Beyond the Fast Phobia Cure is based on the extensive modelling work undertaken by Jos Van Boxtel of Stephen Brooks’ phobia sessions. 

As you are no doubt aware many people suffer from specific Phobias but you might be surprised to learn just how many. For example in the United States about 26 million have a phobia of a certain object, animal of situation and many of them are multi-phobic. Although phobias are common, the effect on a person’s life can be far reaching and debilitating. People who have a phobia often suffer from great anxiety, avoid important events, places or activities and base major life decisions on their phobia. Curing a phobia not only removes an intense fear; it allows the person to live according to his or her goals, dreams and life purpose.

Often phobia clients are treated with CBT, which involves exposure and systematic desensitization. Such a treatment can be effective, but it is long-term so carries the risk of people giving up prematurely. Sadly some people don’t even consider therapy that involves exposure, due to a fear that they cannot handle it.

An alternative treatment is the NLP technique known as the fast phobia cure which can provide resolution without exposure. This technique is often effective, but sometimes it is not enough, especially for phobias which are long term, involve multiple situations or objects, or are the result of severe trauma. 

BHRTI offers a 3 day training course teaching you everything you need to know about specific phobias and how to resolve them quickly and effectively. You will explore various aspects of phobias including cause, secondary gain, limiting beliefs, identity and social systems. To address these factors we will use various elements of Ericksonian hypnosis, solution focused therapy, NLP and EMDR. Rather than applying a standard technique or procedure you will learn how to adapt therapy to a client’s beliefs, needs and thinking style.

This course is based on the original teaching of the world renowned expert in the field of hypnotherapy Stephen Brookes as modelled by Jos Van Boxtel.  It is the first of a series of short niche courses scheduled due to an increasing demand by therapists who want to become more competent and confident in treating clients with all kinds of specific phobias.

In this course specific phobias will be distinguished from complex anxieties like social phobia and agoraphobia. Treating the latter ones is the subject of a separate course (link).

There will be live demonstrations of different treatments with genuine clients so if you wish to be considered as a client for this purpose please contact course organiser Maria here.
