Ophidiophobia, otherwise known as the fear of snakes, was a bit of a problem for Vina.
She lives in Sydney, Australia, and although she knew she wasn’t going to bump into snakes on a daily basis, she still wanted to be able to deal with any snake encounters calmly and rationally, rather than freezing through fear.
Like many, her fear was so strong that even just thinking about snakes would make her freeze – indeed, just the word was enough to make her skin crawl and for her to start to feel deeply uncomfortable.
Vina decided that enough was enough, it was time to conquer her snake fear once and for all.
So she came to me.
Our session was, as she describes it, “short, quick, fun, really safe” – indeed, our session lasted less than 10 minutes!
Short it may have been, but it was extremely effective – 10 minutes earlier the word snake was enough to make Vina’s skin crawl and for he to start to freeze; now, there was no problem with snakes at all. Indeed, she actually said that she could imagine seeing one in real life and she could imagine her reaction would be to happily chat with it instead of freezing and panicking!
A lifetime of deep-seated phobia, completely gone in 10 minutes.

“Hi I’m Vina and I’m from Sydney Australia and I actually had this irrational fear of snakes – completely completely afraid, Iwould just freeze just thinking about snakes.
Even the word “snakes” would just make my skin crawl and I knew that maybe I won’t be seeing snakes every day of my life but if I should chance upon seeing a snake I’d like to actually cure that phobia.
So I saw Keith for that and Keith really took me through a process which was short, quick, fun, really safe, and I can’t even recommend to you how amazing it was.
Now if you mention the word snake or I think that I’m gonna to come across a snake I feel like it’s a jelly bean! That’s how dramatic and how quick my phobia turned into a no big deal.
So if I do feel the snake coming on anywhere in my path I can have complete peace, can just sort of look at it and probably even talk to it and go “Hey snakie, how you going?”
Honestly this amazing process that only took like 5 -10 minutes at the most really changed the whole lifetime of snake fears that I had.
I totally totally recommend seeing Keith about it – he’s an awesome guy and he just has the ability to keep you in a safe space and… why not just come and see him!”
