Yes, George, I think the best possibility for a quick, effective intervention is a DVD by clinical social worker Mary Sise called Thought Field Therapy for Stress Management , where she demonstrates her method of energy tapping/bilateral eye movements (it’s a combination of Thought Field Therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique) that is astonishingly effective at helping people get rid of fears, phobias, and other persistent problems that change so slowly with traditional psychotherapy. With a phobia like this, insight therapy is highly overrated; I’d definitely try Mary’s technique to see if you can’t catch a break with a hard-earned short-cut.
You can work with her guidance, right there on the screen, after watching her demonstrate the technique with several volunteers from her audience (some with even tougher phobias to get rid of than yours, believe it or not!). After watching several demos, you get to practice with Mary with a ‘fill in the blanks’ session. We carry this DVD in our catalog . She''s very good and she knows what she''s doing, and she’s also funny, smart and kind. Good luck.
