How to Overcome Lifts Fear and Phobia Easily

by JJ Seymour

Anyone who's seen one of those little notices posted in many American elevators knows what it's like to experience a fear of lifts. Many elevators have little placards inside that say something to the effect of, "If this elevator gets stuck, don't panic: there's no danger of being remaining in the elevator forever, of the elevator falling to the ground uncontrollably."

Most people don't know enough about elevators' suspension and hoists about how elevators are actually built--to know whether or not to trust the placard completely. For many people, those little notices only increase their fear, by putting them in mind of specific terrible scenarios. Every elevator is also required to have a notice stating its maximum lifting capacity. These only worsen people's phobias: who knows whether the elevator's lifting capacity has been exceeded? What would happen if it does? Is there a better way to stop fear of elevators than these ineffectual little signs?

Phobia Of Lifts Interferes With Life

If you live in a big city, you probably don't have a choice about whether to use the elevator or not. If you live on the 10th floor and you're in a hurry, you can't be expected to run up 20 flights of stairs. Yet, if you're nervous around lifts, you can never feel "at home" in your own building. For some people, using the elevator repeatedly can lead to desensitization. However, for others, the fear only gets worse every time they enter that dread chamber. If you have a severe phobia of lifts, you're probably worried about what would happen if, suddenly--somewhere between the 16th and 17th floors--you were to snap. What if you had a full-blown panic attack, suspended in an elevator shaft hundreds of feet above the ground?

Lift Phobia On The Job

Office buildings, of course, are even worse. Most people who work in the city have to use the elevator to ascend a 50-story building every day. What's worse is, you have to face that which you dread most whilst in your formal "business" clothes, in front of all your co-workers. What if you panicked and embarrassed yourself in front of the boss, or in front of that cute cubicle-mate? Do you quit your job? Should you try to get yourself relocated somewhere closer to the ground? Not in today's economy.

Techniques To Conquer Your Fear Of Lifts

Fortunately, if you suffer from an acute, uncontrollable phobia of elevators, there is help. You don't need get hopped up on pills to conquer your fear. Neither do you need to go to a traditional therapist and undergo years of psychoanalysis, trying to find out whether you're afraid of elevators because your mother weaned you too quickly. Best of all, you won't even need to force yourself to do what you dread, hoping to somehow eradicate your fear through brute force (you may have tried to do this, and it didn't work).

NLP And Hypnotherapy Can Help

More often than not, phobias are conditioned responses. In the case of elevator phobia, somehow your mind has formed an automatic association between elevators and panic. This condition is easily treatable through a combination of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and hypnosis. Treatments like Stop Anxiety Now can re-condition and re-train your mind, so that instead of associating elevators with fear, you'll start to associated them with joy, confidence, and calm. Then, after just a few sessions, you'll be able to conquer your fear of lifts for good.

If you are unable to visit a practitioner in person you may well benefit from a good and guaranteed talking cure recording such as Stop Anxiety Now, by experienced hypnotherapist JIm Brackin.

How does The Background Phobia Therapy work?

Background Therapy is based on a traditional phobia therapy session, very similar to those you would have if you visited our practice. Based on our well publicised needle phobia treatment that was featured in the national press, it uses a proven combination of neuro-linguistics, suggestion and time-line techniques to finally put you fear firmly behind you.
Unlike most audio based therapies that you have to find time to listen to, as the name suggests these background therapies can be used in the background when you are busy doing other things.
So for example you could put the therapy on your computer and just play it whilst you get on with other things. There is no need to pay attention to the, in fact in many ways it is better if you don't. And importantly, there is no need to play the therapy through to the end, because of it's unique modular design you can stop it at any time.
The therapy uses the sounds of nature as a background track. Sounds of nature are proven to have a therapeutic effect, reducing stress and stimulating the immune system. In addition the therapy is delivered at a 'low-threshold' level and might just be heard as a murmur or chatter that mingles with the natural sounds.
In this way you hear the soothing sound of a country stream, or a tropical sunset or woodland waterfall whilst the needle phobia therapy works virtually undetected in the background.

Can these background suggestions really solve my fear?

Yes. We have many, many clients that report big changes in the way that they feel after using background therapy for just a few weeks. If it is used over time you will begin to notice changes in the way that you feel. Clients report that all of those old emotions of fear, anxiety and dread reduce or totally disappear. The difference between this and meeting up for face-to-face sessions is that the results are less immediate. The reason for that is in personal sessions it's possible for the therapist to adapt their approach based on feedback - without that feedback background therapy relies on a well defined process, which because it covers all the possibilities, takes a little longer.
This background therapy comes with a full six month guarantee. Should you, decide to purchase, if within six months you have not seen a noticeable difference in you reaction to needles then simply tell us via our contact page and we'll arrange a swift refund.

How do I use it?

Download it onto your computer, phone or mp3 player put it to play on 'loop' and forget it. Anywhere you can listen to the therapy in the background is fine. It does not use hypnosis, so will not make you drowsy which makes it safe for most activities, including driving. Play it for five minutes or five hours it is really up to you. If on occasion you can spend some time listening to the therapy on headphones, this will speed up the therapeutic effect it has.
Each therapy uses a different set of natural sounds as a backdrop. Yet each one uses the same therapeutic techniques to soothe away your old fear and anxiety. Which you choose is entirely up to you, so pick the one with the natural sounds that you feel you most connect with.
