What is Claustrophobia?

Claustrophobia - Fear of confined spaces is a learnt behavioral response. Like many Claustrophobic's your fear may have started in early childhood although it can also develop in teenage years or as an adult.

Obviously no one likes the idea of being stuck somewhere, however as an Claustrophobic you'll have experienced a much stronger response that can range from fear to terror & possibly even panic.

Some people can remember how or where their fear started, however many people are not aware of how the fear started and can't pinpoint any specific trigger point. For some the fear just can out of no where. Fortunately it's not necessary to know why or how the fear started and either way Claustrophobia can be successfully treatment.

What causes Claustrophobia?

Typically Claustrophobia is an anxiety driven fear. The thought of being in certain situations drives the worry about being stuck or trapped. This triggers the fight or flight response and causes your Adrenal Glands to release of Adrenaline into body. The effects of Adrenaline can typically include faster heart rate, faster breathing or a shortness of breath, increased blood flow to the muscles, feeling hot and sweaty or cold and clammy.

Many things can trigger a Catastrophic attack, including - lifts, tunnels, trains, cubical in public toilets, MRI scanners, being in the back seat of a car, rooms with windows that can't be opened, crowded rooms or places, airplanes.

A patient tells how Claustrophobia treatment changed her life for the better

I had been claustrophobic for a very long time, unable to board an aircraft or enter a lift for nearly 25 years, or travel by train for 15 years, and I was desperate to find a cure. Even trips to somewhere unfamiliar such as hotels, shopping centers, museums etc would be filled with anxiety, and this led to me declining any requests from friends or family to go somewhere I hadn't been to before.

My husband had been asked to work over in the USA for three years, and I wanted to join him out there, so I needed to find something which was quick, highly effective and permanent in order to overcome my fears.

I contacted Paul in September 2011, and after just one session I felt as though the weight of the world had been lifted from my shoulders. I was suddenly calm, relaxed, and easy-going, no longer the constantly stressed, anxious, and worried wife and mother I was before.

My husband and family cannot believe that someone can change so radically after such a short treatment time, and I wish that I had undergone the NLP treatment years ago. Most importantly, my claustrophobia has disappeared, and I now cannot even remember why I was frightened in the first place.

I decided to test myself by booking a flight with a fear of flying course, where I knew there would be ample support should I encounter any problems, and in addition I could overcome my general concerns with aircraft safety which had accumulated over time.

I am delighted to say that I absolutely loved the flight, and the other attendees on the course joked that I was a fraud for being there as I was one of the most relaxed during the trip. I experienced none of the terrors on seeing the aircraft doors closing that I would have experienced before visiting Paul, and instead was disappointed when we had to land and return to the terminal.

I am so grateful to Paul for the enormity of the changes he has made in my life which I now benefit from every day.

I am still pleasantly surprised by my feelings of calm and serenity when confronted by a stressful situation, where previously I would have been convinced something awful was about to occur which I would need to react to. I no longer feel the familiar adrenaline-fueled panic comprising the all too familiar tightness in my chest, the hot flush through my face, and shaking legs.

My freedom from claustrophobia has finally given me the prospect of being able to travel & to explore new places, & in addition, I am finally free of the stress, fear & anxiety which had accompanied me for so many years. *

Here's another email we received from Rowena about 18 months after her treatment

Good afternoon Paul,

I wanted to say how much I am appreciating my new travel and exploration freedom. I cannot believe that my life could have become so exciting, eventually making a total of 15 flights both here in the US and Europe.

You have worked miracles, and I cannot thank you enough. With your help you have enriched the lives of every member of my family, especially the visit to Disney which has become the highlight of my daughter's life so far!!

I very much hope that life is good for you and your family, and maybe our paths will cross again some time.

Very best wishes *
