About Creature Courage and our Therapy:

Due to Covid 19 we have decided to not run group workshops this year unless things dramatically change. This is for everyone’s safety. However, we are still doing private animal phobia therapy that can be booked for up to three people at a time (people who know each other) which will replicate our workshops but has the advantage of being completely tailored around your needs. 

The prices are: 1 person is £347, 2 people is £650 and for 3 people £950 for 7 hours of life changing therapy. Please call us on 0800 970 4417or send us a message on our CONTACT page to arrange a date for your therapy and for any bookings for 2 to 3 people as our booking system on our website is currently set up for people who wish to book for one place only.  You can book for one place on our Booking Page.

The therapy is based in Southwest London and run from 10:45 to around 6pm. And yes, we use house spiders not just tarantulas. (A common question!)

 We are very generous with time and will work with you as long as you need on the day to achieve the results you want. We will request everyone attending to do a lateral flow test on the day and send the results to assure a safe environment for everyone.  We look forward to working with you and being part of your journey to freedom!

Our Therapy:

We at Creature Courage know how debilitating and embarrassing an animal phobia can be. It can be so frustrating when others do not understand that you can’t just “get over it” as this is an issue that is deeper than what you can simply rationalize. You are not alone. You would be surprised about how common these phobias are. And we are here to support you and achieve a liberating change that you may have never thought possible in just a few hours!

We are passionate about making a positive difference in people’s lives! We run fun experience workshops and one on one therapy to powerfully change your life and to overcome common animal phobias. Our therapy is carefully designed with our skilled psychologists and hypnotherapists to effectively change mindsets to break free of phobias, fears, and anxieties around animals.  The therapy is designed to not only be life-changing, healing and educational but also interesting and exciting!

We use a combination of education, art therapy, cognitive therapy, NLP techniques, hypnotherapy and an immersive therapy option to achieve our incredibly high success rate. The techniques we teach can help you build overall confidence and stay in control of your emotions in any stressful situation you may face in life.

We run regular spider phobia workshops as it is the most common animal phobia. You can book our Spider Courage Experience on our Booking Page. If you would like to arrange some private therapy for other animal phobias or book a private group therapy session, please contact us and let us know how we can help you. Check out some powerful testimonials  from our famous Spider Courage Experience workshop in this video.

Do I have to see or touch an animal to do the therapy?

Absolutely not. This is an optional choice to do at the end of the therapy to prove your therapy has actually worked. It is also one of the most powerful ways to assure an animal phobia is cured so we, of course, provide this option to give our clients every opportunity to get the results they want. No pictures, video or live animals are shown before an agreed immersive session.

Due to Covid 19 we have decided to not run group workshops this year unless things dramatically change. This is for everyone’s safety. However, we are still doing private animal phobia therapy for up to two people at a time which will replicate our workshops but has the advantage of being completely tailored around you. This will take place in Southwest location and will be £347 per person for at least 7 hours of therapy, if not longer, which is incredible value.  Basically, we are very generous with time and will work with you as long as you need on the day to achieve the results you want. Please give us a call or send us a message on our CONTACT page to arrange a date that is convenient for both parties and for payment.



Location: Creature Courage is currently located in London at various locations depending on which event. We will travel to you for custom sessions if desired. We do cater to many events in surrounding areas such as Surrey and in Kent.  We are based mostly out of the Oasis Centre at Lambeth North and on Harley Street in central London.  

When: Our therapy can be booked at a time that is convenient with you almost any day of the week, just get in touch to find a time that works. Currently, our Spider Courage Experience takes place on selected Saturdays or on the occasional Sunday from 12:30pm-6pm. Book well in advance as spaces often fill up very quickly.

How will you help me overcome my fear or phobia? We use cognitive therapy, NLP, hypnotherapy, art therapy and an immersive therapy option in a group therapy setting and in private one on one sessions. These are very effective and safe methods that have been used for many years and have been proved to be the quickest and most effective ways for people to overcome fears and phobias.

Will the Creature Courage Experiences work for anyone? Yes, our workshops can work for anyone who is serious about change and take on board the things we teach. The techniques we use have proven and powerful results with people with phobias for years. Most people can get rid of most if not all of their fears in one session. We also teach self calming techniques that you can use to continue the work we do on your own. Occasionally some people might need a few more sessions but we have great packages to accommodate for the extra help needed. 

Ultimately human behaviour is unpredictable and we can’t control your choices, how you think or your actions, the long term success of the therapy is based on the effort you are willing to put into exposure and continuing to face your fears to completely desensitise yourself.

It is essential that you disclose any known medical conditions and medication (both professionally prescribed or self medicated) and any other reasons that may prevent you from being a suitable candidate for hypnotherapy. You MUST also disclose any mental health issues or any history of being sectioned (voluntary or via doctor / police) under the mental health act. Though this might not disqualify you from our therapy as many of our clients have mental health conditions, some mental health conditions can be made worse by hypnotherapy so we NEED to know.  We reserve the right to refuse to treat or discontinue treatment in any case where we have not been fully made aware of any medical or mental health condition or reason that could be counterproductive for the use of hypnotherapy or associated treatments and we will not be held liable if this information has been withheld.

Do I have to see or touch the animal I am afraid of during the therapy? Absolutely not. The therapy is completely in your control. No animals or photographs are used until the end part of the therapy if you choose to have it. The immersive therapy is simply an option we provide at the end of the session to prove your therapy has truly worked. Also we feel that it’s important to provide this option because it is still the number one way to truly get over a phobia. We are so confident that the therapy we provide will be so effective that you will be able to do the immersive therapy option at the end. Imagine how proud you will be when you say you have faced your fears and have conquered them!

Will I go unconscious or lose control while in hypnosis? No, you will always be IN CONTROL. A hypnotic state is a place of deep relaxation and though very peaceful the person is always aware and in control of what is going on. It is simply a state where the mind is able to think more clearly and come to positive solutions easier. Hypnosis is about giving you back control and learning how to calm yourself.

What is NLP? NLP stands for Neuro -linguistic Programming. NLP techniques are simple but powerful as they quickly help change the way we think about our problems and help us generate new patterns of behaviour. Neuro Linguistic programming is how the relationship between mind, language and behaviour work together and empowers people with tools of how to be in control and get these three components working together with awareness and positive purpose.

Does this replace medical treatment? Though this is a very successful form of therapy, this does not replace medical treatment. We advise that you seek advice from your GP or other relevant medical professionals for a variety of different options and to assess your needs for what is right for you. We are offering therapy that is educational about being in control of your emotions for a better quality of life. Our therapy can complement other methods of help and is one of many ways to assist you on your journey.

What about the treatment of animals used for the therapy? Every effort is put into assuring that any animals used for therapy is done in the least stressful manner possible. All of our therapy animals are well taken care of and are used in a way that is gentle and considerate of their nature. They are kept in fantastic conditions when not being used for therapy as beloved pets. We are fully insured and licensed to use our animals in therapy.

Are there any restrictions of people who can’t do the therapy? You need to be at least 16 years of age. If you are under 16 you must book with an adult. We do not treat children under 12 years of age. Though rare, a few mental health conditions are not suitable for hypnotherapy and could make it worse, so please consult your doctor if you are unsure.

What if I can’t make my session, will I get a refund? All sales are final but we can reschedule your appointment with the next available space if you give us 24 hours notice by text or email of not being able to make it. In the unlikely event that something happens on our end where we have to cancel your course we will refund you in full or move your session to another date.
