Phobia Relief by Kalliope Barlis is a small book comprising three main parts. It helps resolve illogical fears and phobias that keep you from engaging in activities you might enjoy. The first part encourages you to choose your purpose to lead a fulfilled life full of complete moments and to feel connected. The second part discusses the solution to deal with fears and phobias. The last chapter in this part emphasises that by simply the way you think, your future can be anything you think you want it to be. In part three, the author shares a transcript with a client who had coulrophobia (fear of clowns) and wanted to change. The author guided her through the whole process, and in the end, the client felt better and had changed.

The author is a licensed trainer, Neuro-Linguistic Programming(NLP)- about learning how to think successfully and Phobia Relief. From the commendations given to the author in the book, you can trust that her work is legit and receives recognition everywhere. At the end of the book, she has left her contact information if you want to ask for help.

I liked that the author showed us a transcript of a client. Following up on the process showed how systemic it is. If followed, the result is successful. It was amazing how the client lost her fear of clowns shortly after it had existed for ages. The three sections and each of its chapters are well structured. Therefore following through with the book was steady. NLP might sound complex to some readers, but the language used was simple and easily understood. The exercises at the end of some chapters have also proved helpful. They are ideal and easily accomplished. I also liked that the author gave real-life examples because it helped me understand the book's details.

Though I have no illogical fears or phobias, I have learned many things from this book. There was nothing I disliked about this book.

I applaud the author for this informative content. Most self-help books contain a repeated message, but this book's content is unique. Therefore, I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. I would recommend the book for research and other purposes for psychologists and supporters of mental health issues. I recommend it to anyone looking to overcome or conquer their fears or phobias. Parents with children with fears and phobias may also benefit from this book.
