What is a Phobia?
A phobia is an intense and unwanted fear about a situation, event or object. It can come on quickly or be something you live with almost constantly. A phobia may have a significant impact on your life and how you live it. You might go to great lengths to avoid the object or situation of concern.
On a rational level I’m sure you can talk about how exaggerated your concern is. A phobia can be very frustrating to live with. However phobias are not located in your rational thinking. Rather they are imprinted in the subconscious part of your mind. Hypnotherapy addresses this subconscious part of your mind. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy can therefore be extremely effective at reducing, and in many cases, completely eliminating phobias.
Common phobias include social phobia, fear of open public spaces, fear of vomiting, public transport, heights, blushing, driving, needles, flying, spiders and confined spaces. You may have a fear which is similar to a phobia, for example, a fear of commitment, exams, the future, illness, being alone or other fears which have begun to increase anxiety or restrict your life in some way.
In the safety and calm of the consulting room, hypnotherapy will help you address and change the exaggerated fear response that your subconscious sends out when faced with the object or situation.
The good news is that, for most phobias, hypnotherapy and NLP for phobias, can provide long term relief of your anxiety in a short period of time. Most phobias are cleared after one to three sessions. Jason Demant is here to help. Contact him today.

Quit Smoking Now! Programme
Jason, You have been very helpful. Changing negative habits for positive ones is really the key. The meditation exercises were great. But the most effective thing is to have someone to talk to. Rarely do you find somebody who takes you by the hand and shows you a way out. My breathing capacity has increased and this changes my whole personality. My children came last night and they asked me whether I have done a face-lift. Of course, the skin looks much better without a veil of smoke and depriving the cells of oxygen and vitamin C. I also became much more assertive.
Alcohol Reduction Therapy
Jason helped me to explore the causes of my negative issues and to develop strategies to ensure long-term term solutions. I 'm very happy to endorse him to anyone considering hypnotherapy. It worked for me! Thank you Jason.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Jason really helped me sort out my problems with my relationship to food. I learnt simple and effective steps to help me eat in a conscious way, know when to eat and when not to. I learnt to identify real hunger and to know when I have had enough. Jason is genuine and caring and was very easy to speak to. I highly recommend him when dealing with weight loss and food issues.

Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
I wholeheartedly recommend Jason's method of coaching. It definitely helped me to cut down on my eating, and I'm also more aware of why I eat when I'm not hungry. In addition, I now have new ways of coping with stress.
Change Behaviour Patterns and Anger Management
Jason enhanced the way that I think and the way that I view people. Because of him, I am more grounded, get less emotionally upset with people, and am truly living up to the goal that we had set during coaching; to become less judgemental of people and be more sensitive
towards other's feelings, and to learn how to communicate with people in way that will make me more effective in receiving what I want. I really feel that Jason was a blessing from God.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Thank you so much for your support and guidance. You were truly an ally in helping me define my goals and structure my thoughts, beliefs and actions towards living each day with more fulfillment and efficacy. Thank you for your remarkable skills, support, accessibility and guidance via our conversations and e-mails these weeks. You have been an incredible and effective coach and a supportive ally who has fuelled my inspiration and provided me with effective tools. I highly recommend you.
Jason Demant’s main clinic is located on Devonshire Street, W1W 5DT in the heart of London’s Harley Street Medical district. Jason also sees clients in Golders Green and Kentish town.
W1W 5DT (Main Clinic)
Let’s work together to bring you more happiness, calm and fulfilment.
Sessions are normally once a week and last 50 minutes. Please let me know if you would prefer a different structure. I normally work session by session and do not insist you must pre-book a certain quantity of sessions.
The majority of clients will have between four and 12 sessions. Some have fewer and some will have more. Not all challenges are the same and no two clients are the same either. For example, some phobias may need just one session, whilst other phobias many require more. Addictions such as reducing drug dependency or overeating will normally require at least three or four sessions.
My standard smoking cessation programme (as outlined here) is fixed at two sessions.
I advise perspective clients to book a session and then book session by session. However there are reductions for block bookings.
I offer you a free initial consultation, by phone, under no obligation. All session prices include free support by email between sessions. I work in London’s Harley Street Medical district.
Clinical Hypnotherapy: £115
Book four sessions: £395
Book six sessions: £595
Hypnotherapy (sometimes called hypnosis) is not only perfectly safe, you will find it relaxing and calming. You will hear everything said and sometimes may be asked to respond to questions as well. Unlike stage hypnotism shows, which are about entertainment, during clinical hypnotherapy you are in complete control and able to open your eyes if you wish to.
It is rare to find someone who can’t be hypnotised. Have you ever daydreamed or concentrated on a book or TV show? Those are experiences very similar to the hypnosis trance state. Your mind was focussed and open and receptive to the information you were taking in. Hypnotherapy is simply when a trained and qualified expert guides you gently into that feeling of calm relaxation. Hypnotherapy involves structured visualisations or speaking to you whilst in this peaceful state. It is amazing how effective hypnotherapy can be.
With all clients I use a range of therapy techniques. These may include Mindfulness based tools which aim to train the mind to let go of past and future worries and concerns. I use NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to challenge and change rigid or unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs. This means that some sessions may not have any hypnotherapy component. You can request that I primarily use one technique.
For some challenges such as pain control, smoking or phobias, primarily I will use hypnotherapy. However I will always make use of other therapy exercises and techniques to ensure you see long lasting real results. No question or concern is too small, so please ask more about how I work.
Don’t believe any therapist who tells you they can 100% guarantee success. All therapeutic work is really a partnership between me, the therapist, and you, the client. I give you tools and work very hard to help you see things differently and gain resources. However whatever changes you wish to see will ultimately be carried out by you. You are responsible for your decisions, choices and mindset.
Though I cannot guarantee results, I feel confident that you will benefit greatly. If you are motivated, wonderful changes should hopefully result. This is why many packages do have a 30 day and in some cases, a 90 day, refund satisfaction guarantee. My smoking cessation programme includes six month support.
