It is fairly normal for people to have some apprehension before going to the dentist. We know dental surgeries use needles, drills, scrapers, and other various tools may be used inside the mouth. Together with a feeling of loss of control while sitting in a chair while a dentist leans over, uncomfortably close.
However when that apprehension become fear, anxiety and perhaps a panic attack, then it is an irrational fear – a phobia.
Most of us suffer from at least one phobia, and some suffer from multiple irrational fears. The feelings and syptoms of a phobia can range from mildly uncomfortable through to traumatic and debilitating panic.
Fear exists to protect us from threats and danger. It drives the fight or flight instinct. Phobia’s are irrational fears.
However, the symptoms of a phobia are very real for the sufferer, because the unconscious mind has activated the instinctive fear reaction. Meanwhile the conscious logical mind knows the phobia is irrational, but is powerless to control it.
The phobia usually has it’s foundations in childhood. Small children are impressionable. Perhaps something happened that caused discomfort and pain? The masked dentist, gloves, strange chemical smells and the sounds of the drill could be enough to release the monster.
The symptoms of a phobia may include;
- extreme anxiety
- shortness of breath
- rapid breathing
- irregular heartbeat
- excessive sweating
- dry mouth
- confused thoughts
- inability to articulate words or sentences
- a desire to run-away
As time goes on, skipping dental check-ups, teeth deteriorate. Sooner or later avoidance is no longer an option. You are trapped in a loop of negative thought patterns. These lead you to uncontrolable responses.
The phobia is a learned response. Truth is, using the right techniques it can be unlearned and replaced with an appropriate resonse.
Now you can welcome life beyond fear of dentists simply by listening to this MP3. The ‘Welcome life free of fear of dentists’ MP3 is a resource used to ‘lock-in the unconscious shifts following one-on-one therapy with Peter Zapfella.
You will feel more confident, and more relaxed, because you know your dentist is a professional, who cares for your health and well-being.
The first thing to do is download and listen to the pleasant environmental sounds or gentle music, your unconscious mind learns to release fear and stress, while building confidence.
The second thing to do is tell the dentist you have an irrational fear, a phobia and anxiety. Let them know.
Then, ask the dentist to pre-warn you if the proceedure may cause pain.
Focus upon your breathing, and if possible listen to this MP3 through headphones at the same time.
Have the dentist agree that a physical signal, such as raising the left arm, means STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING NOW!
Abreactions are strong, often disturbing emotional and even physical reactions to something re-experienced from the past, as if real. An abreaction could re-traumatize rather than achieve the desired healing, particularly if there is no experienced therapist present to ‘rescue’ the patient (when listening to an MP3 at home for example). Our Welcome subliminal messages are abreaction free, you can rest assured you are safe.
If you listen to this MP3 while sleeping, on ‘repeat’ your unconscious mind will hear this message almost 500 times every night. The more these messages are repeated, the more they are uncritically accepted by the deep unconscious and become a new unconscious belief.
The ‘Welcome’ subliminal affirmations ‘lock-in’ those new thought patterns long term. You break the cycle of fear and anxiety and then move on to healthy thinking and behaviours. The results will amaze you, because it is so fast and easy.
If you had a bucket of mud (representing negative emotions and behaviors), but you wanted a bucket of clean fresh water (representing positive emotions and behaviors), you could put the bucket of mud under a tap and run fresh clean water (representing subliminal affirmations) into the bucket. But it would take a long time, and you would still have a bucket of muddy water. That is an analogy of how most subliminal affirmation downloads currently available on the Internet work, or perhaps do not work. Peter Zapfella uses his one-on-one therapies to ‘throw out’ or delete the mud (representing negative emotions and behaviors) and then you can choose to use the ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmations to quickly and efficiently refill the bucket with fresh clean water (representing positive emotions and behaviors). No mud!
The old way to treat phobia’s was called ‘desensitisation’. It involved exposing the sufferer to the very thing that triggered their fear, over and over again. It risked re-traumatizing the patient, or making the problem even worse. The technique was expensive, time-consuming and often unsuccessful. However some therapists still use this archaic method.
Everyone of us is unique. We have all had different life experiences and we react to them differently too. Most emotional and behavioural challenges can respond well to one-on-one psychotherapy tailored to the individual, using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy and perhaps cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Following the appropriate therapy your unconscious mind has let the feelings of fear go and resolved the phobic reaction forever.
That is why Peter Zapfella suggests you start with one-on-one therapy using Skype and then use the ‘Welcome’ subliminal affirmations to ‘lock-in’ the unconscious shifts long-term. Of course you can ‘flip-it’ and try one of the 266 ‘Welcome’ MP3’s first, and see if they are effective for you without therapy. If so, that’s great. If not you can use skypetherapy.pro

Subliminal Affirmation Text:
“Everyday starts with cheerfulness, as it has a profound positive effect upon the whole day. The feeling is infectious, it spreads to everyone, as the light in your eyes brightens the day. Your outward smile is a refection of your inward joy and happiness. You are as warm and radiant as the sun on a blue-sky day. You are as bright and optimistic as a singing bird. You are truly a happier person. Everyday, in every way, it just gets better and better. You are now clearer in the mind. More relaxed in the body. More confident, and coping better with everybody now that you feel more cheerfulness than ever before, and every day in everyway it just grows more and more.”
