Fear Of Pills

Symptoms of Fear Of Pills:
breathlessness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying or losing control, a sensation of detachment from reality or a full blown anxiety attack.

You are not the only one to suffer from this phobia. Most sufferers are surprised to learn that they are far from alone in this surprisingly common, although often unspoken, fear.

Fear Of Pills is an intense fear of something that poses no actual danger. While adults with Fear Of Pills realize that these fears are irrational, they often find that facing, or even thinking about facing, the feared situation brings on a panic attack or severe anxiety.

A Way Out?

Imagine what your life will be like when you know that you are not "defective". When you can be confident and at ease in situations where you used to feel your phobia. And when you can talk about your former fear symptoms as though you are describing a movie where the character is someone else, not you.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP explores the relationship between how we think (neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non-verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes).

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) began in the early 1970's with the work of Richard Bandler and John Grinder in modelling human excellence, at the University of California at Santa Cruz. They modelled the linguistic and behaviour patterns of leading people, initially in the area of psychology. They were able to identify what these people did that made them effective so that these patterns could be precisely defined and explicitly taught. Since then millions have experienced its efficacy.

From the NLP viewpoint, your fear is the result of your programs or "constructs" that you have created that don't work very well. With NLP, these constructs are revealed and "re-programmed" so that the Fear Of Pills is minimized and often eliminated.

NLP processes allow you to quickly make changes at an unconscious level to feel back in control — your 'old self' — instead of feeling powerless. NLP interventions are quite rapid and effective.

Energy Psychology

Energy Psychology is emerging as an excellent therapy for fears and phobias because in studies it is shown to be rapid, safe, effective and long-lasting.

Energy psychology focuses on the interrelationship of energy systems, emotion, behavior, psychopathology, and health. These systems include the electrical activity of the nervous system, acupuncture meridians, chakras, biofields, and morphogenetic fields. While psychological functioning includes cognitive, hormonal, neurologic, genetic, neurochemical and environmental factors, at a fundamental level bioenergy is involved in emotions and behavior.

Energy Psychology is based on a theory and practice that has been around for a couple of thousand years. Energy Psychology has the same foundation or roots as acupuncture, except in this case there are no needles used. You could call it emotional acupuncture - without the needles.
