Phobia Of Animals, Insects & Reptiles

Overcome Your Phobia Easily & Comfortably

First things first - we are all born with a wonderfully natural curiosity for all animals, insects and reptiles.

However, our best and deepest learning comes early in life and is usually served up with a large side order of emotional currency.

'She has such a calm and reassuring manner which helps you to conquer your fears and phobias.'

Hence most animal, insect or reptile phobias are created as a result of a traumatic (or even just a little dramatic) childhood experience where either:

  • the child is startled and therefore scared by something very unexpected (a dog jumping up at them excitedly)
  • the child witnesses the phobic reaction of another human being and assumes this is warranted
'Steve was amazing, I can honestly say I am no longer phobic! I wish I had done this years ago.'

When a small child experiences significant fear and or panic in themselves or others, they will generalise the circumstances and create defence mechanisms to prevent those circumstances happening again.

And so the phobia is born!

'Kirsten taught me invaluable techniques to handle my anxiety and minimise the impact of my phobia.'

Untreated, animal, insect or reptile phobias can have a very significant and sometimes dangerous impact on our life.

But it really doesn’t have to be this way!

Approached in the right way, overcoming these kinds of fears and phobias can be very simple indeed!

We have worked with hundreds of clients and helped them cure their phobias of animals, insects and reptiles and as a result helped them to live altogether calmer, happier and all importantly healthier lives!

Through our rapid and results orientated approach, overcoming a phobia can be very quick and very easy indeed.

But There Are No Magic Wands!

Whilst we certainly do not have any magic wands, because we use modern, rapid and dynamic techniques, for most clients change will occur very naturally and rapidly as a result of them undertaking one, some, or all of the following:

  • better understanding their phobia and their mind
  • changing core beliefs around themselves in relation to needles / injections / medical procedures
  • focussing on how they want to feel rather than on how they don't
  • learning AND INTEGRATING new tools, insights and perspectives
  • showing some genuine courage and tenacity

In this regard change can fun and we are confident we can help you overcome your phobia naturally, comfortably and easily.

But don't take our word for it - perhaps read some reviews from Trustpilot - this will give you a much better sense of who we are, what we do and all importantly, the results we consistently help our clients achieve.

How It Works



Why not have a chat - it's free after all! We will ask some questions about you, your history and your specific circumstances. We will tell you whether we can help and if we can, more specifically how.

Get Started


1 - 3

Our sessions last up to 2 hours. Some clients find change a little easier than others, but for most clients we would expect to see them between 1 and 3 times - usually once or twice. We work on a session by session basis.

Get Started

Price & Payment


We charge £300 per hour (inc VAT). Payment is due at the end of the session by card or bank transfer. Where we deem appropriate and where we can, we are happy to provide flexible payment terms or a discount.

Get Started
Cancellation Policy

We will always be sensitive to clients needs and if we can change appointments around to avoid charging, which we usually can, we always will. That said, please be aware that any booking is subject to a rigid 24 hour cancellation / rearrangement policy. If we do not receive a minimum of 24 hours notice of a cancellation or re-arrangement, we reserve the right to charge for the appointment in full.


A lot of our potential clients are concerned about confidentiality but just like doctors and lawyers, maintaining client confidentiality is of utmost concern and sharing anything outside of their sessions would be a violation of our code of ethics. We do not digitalise any of our client notes and the paper versions remain locked away until they are shredded a few months are we have finished working together. Over the years, when a client has been very sensitive to the issue of confidentiality, we have been more than happy to sign legally binding Non Disclosure Agreements.


Sadly we do not offer any guarantees, however at the outset we agree clearly defined goals and discuss the chances of success. Our approach proves remarkably effective with most clients and if you come to us with a real determination to succeed, you'll have an excellent chance of achieving your goal.


Rapid, Genuine, Long Lasting Change


Versus traditional psychotherapy, clinical hypnotherapy can be a more direct and potentially authentic means to heal old emotional injuries and change long term beliefs and perspectives.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that emphasises the important role of critical thinking in how we feel and behave. CBT focuses on changing current thoughts and feelings rather than the past.

Emotional Coaching

Coaching focuses on engaging, motivating, challenging and all importantly empowering another human being to be more courageous, more authentic, more confident and ultimately, much more more!


Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has been described as a software manual for the brain. It is a proven model for supporting and accelerating human performance, especially in the areas of business and sports.
