Fear of birds is a very common phobia. As birds may come and go from a location with great speed and often in groups, the uncertainty of when the sufferer might encounter them adds greatly to the fear. Eating at outdoor restaurants or at picnics is rarely possible without extreme anxiety and even open windows are cause for concern. Bird phobia is often dismissed by those who do not feel the huge anxiety and panic the very thought of coming across a bird would cause.
As a sufferer, you will go to great lengths to avoid areas in which you might expect birds to gather (e.g. around seated areas in town centres and stations, by rivers and coastlines.) Your enjoyment of outdoors is severely hampered or completely destroyed by constant watchfulness.
Seagulls, pigeons, ducks, swans, geese, peacocks and guinea fowl are all surprisingly common in many public areas. So, ornithophobia will severely limit your enjoyment of the countryside or open spaces and may cause you relationship and family issues
Bird Phobia responds very well to therapy and can be severely reduced and removed using Psychotherapy and The Relaxed Living Programme
For children, Suggestion Therapy may be used to control and minimise symptoms, so that, over time, they naturally disappear

Hi Sue, I'm 12st 3 and still dropping! I have now lost 3 stone which is kind of unbelievable! Thank you so much
I feel more relaxed, calm, more at ease, you gave me that push. I had to take in my favourite pair of trousers by a couple of inches. I've stopped picking and am thinking about food differently.
Sue, feeling great as I have now lost a total of 10lbs
I’ve lost 10lbs in the last 4 weeks and I’ve had no problems, I’ve listened to the CD once a day. The Relaxed Eating Programme is very easy to follow; I’ve had no cravings, and I feel great. I now naturally make the right food choices that are good for me without giving it any thought, and I manage my food portions, listening to my body and know when I have had enough to eat and do not feel I have to finish what is on the plate, just because its there
