Spider Phobia

Jeremy was running an NLP-related course. One of the participants had a major phobia of spiders – she couldn’t even say the word! She agreed to work with JL to release the phobia at the end of the first day of a 2-day course. Ten minutes later she was able to say the word and think about spiders without any significant emotional response.

The following day she told the group that she went back to her hotel room and started looking for spiders, whereas previously the thought that there might be one on the room would have, in her words, ‘freaked her out.’
