We feel this approach of going to back to basics to understand human behaviour to be a very interesting concept. In some ways we are still like our ancient ancestors in our responses to the world around us. Most of the things we fear are based on instinct to ensure our survival. For example a fear of falling or flinching at loud noises is completely natural as this warns us of impending danger. But many other ‘modern’ fears we have learned, which in a stressful situation, can transform into a phobia and take over the rational mind. If we can strip away what we have learned and put our minds back in control, many of these superfluous fears can be resolved.
The details for how to get involved in the show are set out below, but if in the meantime you want to tackle your phobias in the real world, get in touch with us today. We have helped a number of people with debilitating phobias by helping them understand how their mind works and giving them techniques and tools to change the way they think.

Do you want to take part in a new TV series with Bear Grylls and overcome a personal obstacel in your life?
The sensitive series sees Bear travel to a wild and remote location with a travel companion, who has a personal challenge they wish to overcome. These companions are not survivalists themselves, but rather real people who have stories to share and the urge to overcome their individual hurdles, to regain confidence within themselves.
They are looking for people who have been struggling with a fear or phobia (whether this is a fear of heights, insects, darkness or claustrophobia etc.), or someone who is generally unhappy with their lifestyle and in desperate need of a change – be it weight issues, anxiety, obsessive behaviours or unusual eating habits – they would love to hear from people who are willing to face their fears and issues head on to make a change. Each episode will aim to achieve the impossible and hopefully change someone’s life for the better through determination and courage.
The team are working with a full support network on location and a medical professional and psychologist will also be on hand throughout filming. Duty of care to contributors is of utmost importance.
If you are held back by a fear, phobia or personal challenge and want to find out more about this exciting opportunity, please call or email:
