Eliminate Phobias and Fears the Efficient Easy Way by Jean-Yves Crozier is a book which may help in reprogramming the body to deal with a whole host of psychosocial issues like fear of people, extreme nervousness while in front of an audience, and other types of non-specific phobias which many people suffer from at various points.

Crozier explains that the fear of a particular aspect of life is the thing that poses the threat and precipitates the panic attack. Helpful reprogramming modalities include Emotional Freedom Techniques developed by Gary Craig during the mid-’90s. These techniques deal with the disruption in energy fields caused by emotional problems and issues of every kind whether real or imagined.

The author believes that stimulating key energy points, or meridiens, leads to balancing energy flows, similar to acupuncture. The technique is to stimulate key energy points with gentle tapping while focusing on the subject of the anxiety.

The author deals with classic phobias like the fear of being around certain insects or the fear of being in contact with people. In each case, he provides specific reprogramming exercises to readjust energy fields and deal constructively with the fear which in many cases is unfounded.

The book discusses the fear of being around people in great depth. At bottom, this fear involves the preference for avoiding scrutiny at all costs, as well as embarrassment and humiliation. The individual’s response to this fear is simply to avoid people. The cure for this is to reprogram the bodily response to these types of situations by getting the person to adjust energy fields and stop hating him- or herself.

A strength of the book is that the author covers strategies to deal with unfounded fears which can be conquered via reprogramming. The book doesn’t cover the more complex areas of psychotherapy dealing with group coercion, hostile work environments, goal incongruencies, behavior reversal, and the most difficult outside influences that are not subject to change except by flight or group accommodative modes.

At bottom, people cannot eliminate fears that devolve from situations that they cannot control, although coping mechanisms may help in reducing some of the stress. Unfounded fears and phobias may be lessened or eliminated by the emotional freedom techniques explained in this book.

Eliminate Phobias and Fears the Efficient Easy Way is a helpful book on developing strategies to cope successfully with a plethora of unfounded fears and phobias. The techniques’ usefulness is somewhat limited in the case of fears that arise from aspects of the surroundings which cannot be changed except by flight or group accommodative modes.

    Some people have a tendency to over-analyze
    problems. This is known as analysis paralysis.
    The fear of doing things efficiently is akin to the fear of making an error so that the person simply cannot get away from the task due to the belief that there must be something wrong or there must be a “catch” somewhere that is being missed.

    What if you have a phobia of doing things efficiently and easily?
