Kick Your Fears With Hypnotist Therapy

by Raggi on September 8, 2011

It’s hard to imagine a martial artist being afraid of anything, really, let alone… bananas? Twenty-three-year-old Paula Ross of Kilmarnock, Ayrshire said she had been deathly afraid of bananas for as long as she could remember.  Her parents forced her to eat one of those yellow monstrosities as a toddler and she’s developed a phobia of them ever since. The mere sight of a banana wrenched her stomach and the smell of one sent her running from the room. School bullies would chase her around the schoolyard with bananas as a kid, only cementing her irrational fear.

Thanks to hypnotist therapy, Paula was not only able to kick her fears once and for all – but she has been able to actually eat bananas for the first time in 20 years too! “This therapy has changed my life,” she told The Daily Mail. “It is absolutely fantastic.”

Her therapy included Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a powerful hypnotherapy technique where the hypnotist talks to the patient about how to detach from negative memories and form new positive ones. During her sessions, she was taken back to happy, calm memories when her phobia didn’t exist and she was instructed to associate these pleasant feelings with the sight, smell or taste of a banana.

Paula studied bioscience in university, but she was astounded when her therapist handed her a banana at the end of the phobia treatment and she didn’t feel the slightest tinge of fear. She explains, “I can go for lunch with my friends and I don’t have to worry about being around if they have a banana. I am forever grateful.”
