Snakes & Other Reptiles

Millions of people suffer from “Ophidiophobia or ophiophobia” which is an abnormal fear of snakes.  Others suffer from “Herpetophobia” which is a fear of reptiles.  In some cases these fears will be so severe that the afflicted person will not leave the house for fear of encountering these creatures.  Other people, with a more mild version of the phobia, will find it difficult to visit a zoo or aquarium for fear of seeing snakes or other reptiles.  Hypnosis for these phobias is very effective at relieving or eliminating these phobias.

“Dear Laurie, Just wanted to give you an update on my ALMOST lizard-less cruise… I made it through every port without a sighting, until the last day. My husband and I were taking a private tour and we turned down a residential street where they were trimming a tree, and we had to stop. Well, when the big branch fell on the street about a DOZEN iguanas came out of the brush, scattering in all directions.

Maybe it was a premonition on your part – talking about the brother & sister lizards, but there was an entire generation hiding up in that tree! One of them had a head the size of a melon – gray& ugly, running right towards our car. My husband was screaming, “Don’t look! Don’t look!”

But it was too late – I saw all of them…big ones, little ones, green, gray, white, young & old….and I was fine. I didn’t freak-out a bit. (I did have slight bruising on my thumb from pressing it so hard, but it isn’t permanently disfigured J) We continued the tour, and I didn’t even think about afterwards. That’s monumental. (My husband couldn’t believe that I didn’t have to be hospitalized.)

I had a few bad dreams when I got home, but other than that, I’ve had no residual effects. So, I’d like to thank you for giving me “added peace” in my life. I’m glad I had the experience, and was able to test my new lizard-fear-free self! Who would have thought it would only take 4 sessions to get over a life-long phobia?

Now I’ve moved on to the weight-loss CD, and I’m listening to it religiously – after all that cruise food, I’m just waiting for it to actually take effect! Laurie, I really want you to know how grateful I am to you for helping me overcome my fear. I wish you all the best and please know that you have facilitated SUCCESS!”
