I have always had a fear of trains, since I can remember. So bad that even looking at one would freak me out. Also I couldn’t ever go near a train track, even the sight of them sent my heart racing.
I have never really wanted to get over my fear, I just avoided trains all my life and anything to do with them really. But as my children got older they wanted to go on trains and had school trips where they needed dropping off at the station (don’t get me started on platforms and how scary they were to me!!) So I decided to face my fear and seek help.
I wasn’t expecting much as my fear is so strong! But WOW. It has been done much more than calm me regarding trains. I find it hard getting off to sleep. The hypnotherapy CD I received was amazing. I listened to it each night and boy did I drift off loads quicker. The hypnotherapy sessions I had were so calm, and a real chance for some “me time”. Since the therapy I have been on Eurotunnel twice and took my daughter to the train station and waved her off from the platform with a huge grin on my face!
