Government dental visits data - UK therapist helps clients to beat their dental phobias

07 June 2016 07:00


Thursday 9th June sees the release of the Government dental visits data, and although we can only guess at what the data may show at this stage, we do know that dental phobia is a very real thing.

Dental phobia - whether that is fear of the dentist, fear of needles, injections or the feeling of claustrophobia that treatment can bring - can be a major factor in people avoiding the dentist. A lack of regular check-ups and management of dental hygiene can mean that if and when a person does eventually visit a dentist, the treatment can prove to be more serious. The high sugar diets that many of us now consume also plays a significant part in the health of our teeth and gums.

Yorkshire therapist John Taylor believes that tackling dental phobia could lead to many people getting the treatment they need at a much earlier stage, thereby avoiding costly and uncomfortable procedures at a later date.

John Taylor says: “Quite often, a dental phobia may originate from an unpleasant childhood experience at the dentist, or can even be learned from a parent with a similar phobia. The phobia might be about dentist themselves, or any aspect of the experience – injections, sights, sounds, smells. Whatever the cause, an early resolution to the phobia can help an individual to engage with dental services comfortably and without fear.”

John recommends BWRT® as the most effective treatment for phobias. BWRT® stands for BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, a model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. BWRT® is a totally confidential method that does not require a client to reveal private information or personal secrets to the therapist and is carried out in a completely conscious state. It is a completely logical, practical and down-to-earth therapy based on our latest understanding of how the human brain works. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code.

Perhaps most significantly, BWRT® is usually a fast therapy. Typically, a simple phobia could be resolved in one session. A more complex phobia, such as claustrophobia, may take a little longer to resolve, perhaps a few sessions. It is important to remember that every client's situation is unique. BWRT® can also be successful in treating some of the major causes of decay and gum disease, such as smoking, sugar addiction and eating habits.

The nature of this therapy means that it is ideally suited for use on Skype, making it accessible to anyone with a suitable internet connection and software. John also offers one-to-one sessions in person at his two clinics in North Yorkshire.

In a therapeutic environment, hypnosis can be a powerful tool allowing access to the subconscious and inducing an increased openness to suggestibility. Hypnotherapy depends entirely on co-operation between therapist and client and you cannot be forced to perform tasks against your will. You will be in control at all times and will probably be able to remember much of what was said during hypnosis afterwards. The hypnotherapist will usually guide you into a hypnotic state, or trance, by means of deep relaxation, both physically and mentally. Whilst relaxed, it is possible to work with and transform the thoughts that lead to unwanted beliefs or habits, mostly using visualisation techniques and positive reinforcement, with the focus on beneficial, positive change.
