Fears & Phobias
Anyone who suffers with a true phobia knows that it is a very different animal from a straight forward fear (not to belittle suffering from fear). The difference? If you have a phobia, the intensity of the feeling of panic is at the level where as far as your mind and bodily responses are concerned, death is imminent unless you get away from the thing that triggered your response. In the past, we would have gone looking for the cause using analytical techniques. Since the introduction of BWRT, fears are usually dealt with in one or two sessions, and phobias between one and four sessions.
