Free of Fear
When we are confronted with a dangerous situation our reactions are instinctively alert and concentrated. But if this impulse – which is vital for our survival – takes on a life of its own, it can turn into an enormous burden and affect our quality of life.
From Protector to Brake
Stage fright when giving a company presentation causes our voice to break, with embarrassing consequences. Severe shyness causes stress in all sorts of situations. Fear of flying not only restricts travel opportunities but possibly also our career development. Fear of driving makes our world smaller. Fear of exams stops us from gaining further qualifications. Fear of relationships means that we miss opportunities to lead a happier life. We panic at the sight of spiders, dogs, or even just certain objects. Fear of heights, fear of death, fear of restricted spaces, fear of crowds – the list is endless.
All these fears have something in common: they cause a change in behavior and hold us back unnecessarily. We are immediately overcome by fear or anxiety, even though we know, rationally, that the situations are manageable. Many affected people develop strategies to avoid certain situations. But they do not have enough courage or initiative to break free from the situation. It’s time to take action!
Overcoming fear - methods and measures to help deal with fear
By seeking professional treatment, you can free yourself of your fears and master your day-to-day life more easily.
Phase 1: Dealing with the triggers
During the course of a personal coaching session, I use modern methods from neuroscience to help root out the hidden triggers of your fears. As a result, you will start to understand the unconscious connections that lead to the blockages inside you.
Phase 2: Dealing with aggravating influences
We will find out which particular experiences and thoughts aggravate your fears. And subsequently we will deal with these in such a way that they no longer inhibit you.
Phase 3: Developing new modes of thinking and behavior
Here it is about learning and using new ideas and forms of behavior to replace existing behavioral patterns. You will notice how goals that seemed unattainable are suddenly within your reach, and that you are able to free yourself from negative experiences and unwanted thought processes.
I will help you develop suitable techniques and exercises to overcome your fears. These can be used in day-to-day life to help you stay relaxed – even in high-pressure situations.
