Liz came to see me about her phobia of flying. She said that even the thought of going to the airport was extremely stressful for her, let alone actually sitting in the plane and taking off. As you can imagine, it was causing a real problem for the family when they went on holidays.
I am someone who was massively held back by a very strong social phobia – speaking with strangers, or even meeting strangers, was at best deeply uncomfortable, and at worst utterly terrifying. For far too many years.
So I did the logical thing – I pursued a 20 year career in IT with some success (becoming a Fellow of the BCS in the process).
Until one panic attack too many, which forced me to reconsider me life.
So I studied NLP and hypnosis, used those tools to conquer my own fears and phobias, and since 2010 I have helped over 5,000 others around the world to transform their deepest fears into their greatest strengths through my coaching, speaking, books, and trainings.
