At Bristol Zoo Gardens we have responded to the demand for people wanting to get over their fear of spiders by offering a course, called 'Living with spiders'.
This is delivered jointly by Greg Nejedly (a hypnotherapist at the Hypnotherapy Bristol Practice) and a member of the Zoo Education team and takes place in the Zoo's Conservation Education Centre on Guthrie Road, opposite Clifton College. You will join a small and personal group, with up to ten participants enjoying a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The course lasts for four and a half hours and includes a variety of approaches to help you, including talks, relaxation, hypnotherapy and an optional meeting with our friendly spiders.
Living with Spiders course content:
Introduction and a talk on phobias with a group discussion on how the phobia affects you
A talk about the wonderful world of spiders – highlighting their anatomy, behaviour and role in nature
Refreshment break with a selection of hot drinks and sandwiches
Discussion and information about hypnosis
An optional meeting with live, friendly spiders.
Presentation of certificate of attendance
Top up session
If you have previously attended a Living with Spiders course and would like a refresher, this session is for you! There will be the opportunity to discuss your experiences, ask any questions you might have, remind yourself of relaxation techniques, and meet some of our friendly spiders again. This shorter refresher session will revisit and reinforce your learning, and will make sure you are still comfortable and able to live with spiders.
The Living with spiders course costs £95.
If you are interested in booking a place on the 'Living with spiders' phobia course, or require any further information, please call: 0117 428 5441 or email email@example.com.
We also run similar courses for people who have a fear of snakes. These only run in response to demand, about once a year.
