Phobia Q&A

Dr. Lee trains patients on how to observe their thoughts when they are experiencing a phobia stressor and start developing control of their body's response. Simultaneously, Dr. Lee will help patient start to let go of belief systems that caused the formation of that phobia. In his practice he utilizes a number of healing modalities to help patients be aware of their limiting beliefs and fears, letting go of them, and then reprogramming their subconscious and conscious minds.

Dr. Lee believes you'll never find anyone, anxious, angry, depressed, or angry breathing completely normally. The mind will follow the breath, or the breath will follow the mind, which one is leading the way? Breath patterns are indicative of our emotional and physical state of being. Dr. Lee trains his patients to use the breath to activate the calm brain waves. While we are in a relaxed brain wave state, we can reprogram subconscious limiting beliefs, disconnect from then integrate traumas from the past, and even work on manifesting our desired future.

Phobias are fears sparked by certain situations that can interfere with a person's coping abilities or lead them to stay away altogether from those situations . These situations are not normally dangerous or frightening, but people with phobias experience strong feelings of anxiety when they find themselves in these environments. 1 in 10 people will experience phobias at some point in their lives. These individuals can be calm and rational most of the time, yet find themselves paralyzed with fear when they are faced with a particular situation.
