Swallowing, Gagging and Choking Fears Cured – Hypnotherapy & NLP

There are a number of ways that these problems manifest themselves. Although the contexts may be quite different, the mechanics of the problems themselves are very similar, and all respond well to the direct hypnotherapy and NLP techniques the JustBeWell team employs.

Here are some typical examples:

A person with a limited diet, with food aversion or food phobia problems will usually have a gagging reflex if they try and eat something they new or unfamiliar.

  • Someone may develop a fear of choking while a dentist is examining them, or become scared they might gag during dental procedures.
  • Someone might have a highly exaggerated awareness of swallowing saliva generally. We all generate and swallow saliva constantly throughout our lives, it’s a natural process.  People with hyper awareness of swallowing will often try to fight the reflex and find themselves swallowing in a forced or awkward manner.

How Are You Going To Help Me To Overcome My Fears?

Well, this will depend upon your individual situation. In all its aspects this is a conditioned response, a conditioned mental pattern that has become automated. What we won’t do is spend time going over the past in the hope that discovering the cause will provide the solution. This does work for some people but the best way to treat these kinds of issues, we believe, is to use NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and hypnotherapy to directly recondition the behaviour.

Using these kinds of approaches we find that in general people respond within two to three sessions.
