NLP Technique 
Here is a fantastic NLP technique to use if you are feeling anxious when near a spider, you will need to set this up first and then it will be with you forever. 
Find a quiet and calm place to do the following 6 steps 
Removing Spiders 
The best way to deal with a spider in your home and remove it safely (for both you and the spider) is to take a large enough glass and pop it over the top, then take a thin piece of card and slide it underneath. Now you can take the spider safely to the bottom of the garden and let it run freely. Using a glass that is see-through is much better to see what’s going on, this way you will know if the spider is actually where it needs to be while sliding the card under the glass. 
 
Deterring Spiders 
Spider season is fast approaching, I say ‘spider season’, it’s actually their mating season and that’s exactly why they are moving inside; the females are looking for a warm humid place to shelter for the winter with their egg sack and the males are looking for an attractive female spider to mate with. 
 
I have created a series of three ‘spider’ blogs that I shall be posting over the next 3 days. The first is about my personal story of overcoming my fear of spiders, the second covers removing and deterring spiders from the home and the third is an NLP technique for relieving anxiety. 
 
My Story 
So many people have a fear of spiders (arachnophobia) and I believe it is the most common fear in the world and I too once had a fear of spiders, to the point where I have been teased by people who have caught a spider and then threatened to put it on me as a joke and I would beg and plead for them not to with tears rolling down my face. 
One day I thought enough was enough. I designed a programme of therapy techniques, ones that I teach to clients, to use on myself. It took a few weeks but a day came when it was time, I went and faced my fear. I visited a local reptile shop that sells tarantulas and asked for them to help me.
