The fast phobia cure

Simple phobias are the only type of anxiety disorder for which analytical therapy is not usually necessary. There is not really any need, in most cases, to look for a "root cause" of the anxiety, as the anxiety is only present when the phobic trigger is present. Such phobias are treated with a combination of suggestion and neuro-linguistic programming techniques. Effectively, the subconscious mind is re-programmed to experience the previously terrifying subject in a new and different way.

Usually one or two sessions are sufficient.
