Overcoming a phobia


Recently I worked with a teenage boy who needed help to overcome what had become a real health challenge, he had always had difficulties swallowing and drinking, but this was now becoming an issue as he needed to take pills from his doctor and was unable to do so. After taking him back on a timeline to see where this fear was coming from he saw images of swimming while still a youngster and his head bobbing under the water. Now his conscious mind understood where the phobia came from and he realised he was no longer in any danger the fears diminished, and I was pleased to hear that by the third week he was easily swallowing pills with water for the first time.
