NLP Fast Phobia Cure and Trauma Relief Pattern Tips – Two


This is a follow up article that outlines tips to those whom already know the NLP Fast Phobia Cure and Trauma Relief Pattern. The cure or pattern itself, is not something that can be learned properly from a book, let alone a blog. It needs to be in a live NLP training environment with a trainer present, and is to be used in combination with an almost full NLP Practitioner toolset.

For the first article: NLP Fast Phobia Cure and Trauma Relief Pattern Tips – One

Going from a moment of safety before,  to a moment of safety after the event happened
You run the risk of failing the fast phobia cure and trauma relief pattern almost entirely, if you are not picking a true moment of safety before the event happened and after. Need be you go back hours before, or even the day before if you have to. Example of  the last pattern I did, was a visit to a dentist by a woman when she was a little girl. She used her experience in the dentist chair, the moment of safety before to the moment of safety after. The pattern failed.  I used some milton model language, to get her brain search for the answer (instead of me having to guess.) The coin dropped 🙂 she also watched her sister go through the same thing, which added to the trauma. We then did the pattern from a moment of safety before they even got in to the dentists office, to a time well after leaving it. The pattern worked beautifully.

Playing the black and white movie as seen from the projection booth is impossible
First work with dissociation. If that doesn’t work try playing the bottom half of the screen first, do the pattern on that. Then to the top half. Or every other minute (or second), and then the missing minutes in between. Remember, if the unconscious mind doesn’t want to cooperate in a patter, it has reasons for it! Something is not in place for the brain to safely play the movie.

You can’t get it to go level 2 or 3 fear
When you ask the client to rate the fear, from 1 being no fear and 10 being the worst and you can’t get it below level 2 or 3. Then you have wonder if the unconscious mind of the client isn’t absolutely right? First of all, a client usually rates their fear as 15 or a number like that, when asked to rate the fear from 1 to 10. So getting it down to a 2 or 3 is already a major success. In most cases, I ask the client if they are good with the number 2 or 3. After all, having a mild fear of snakes for instance, is completely justified as some snakes can be dangerous.

  1. This is absolute top notch!

    I actually found this blog randomly through blog catalog, but judging from this article the quality is great!

    Good stuff. Keep it up!


  2. loving the emphasis on the moment of safety before and after. Usually people w/ intrusive emotions play the memories only to the worst part and loop it back to the beginning to do the same thing.

  3. By being in a state of disassociating, it allows the client to feel/hear/see things outside their own model of the world, therefor allowing for the separation of the fear. Got to love NLP. This is one of the ways Anthony Robins became famous.
