Phobias

A phobia is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people

Hypnotherapy can help with phobias quickly and efficiently

Chances are you are being brave by looking at this page- yes, phobias can be irrational, and yes, maybe you have a spider phobia and cannot risk looking at the page because there may just be an image of a spider. We KNOW it is not logical to be scared of a computer image, but then phobias- or the way we behave with a phobia rarely put logic first.

Phobias are fears that are created through association to frightening situations; this can be a one off event or can be related to peers or parents fears or can even have a logical base- getting in an aeroplane really shouldn’t make sense! However, we can naturally be scared and move through the fear sensibly and rationally, but with a phobia we will totally avoid the situation at all costs and being rational or practical does not become a consideration; makes sense with aeroplanes to some degree but what about applying it to fear of buttons?!

Phobias are generally caused by an event recorded by the amygdala and hippocampus and labelled as deadly or dangerous.  But sometimes we can never remember the event although the fear remains.

Phobia comes from the Greek: phóbos, meaning “fear” or “morbid fear”.

How can hypnotherapy help?

Hypnotherapy can help phobic responses diminish by removing the irrational fear; it may be that you don’t ever embrace snakes but running away screaming is the less preferable option! Hypnotherapy will address the origin of the fear in the subconscious and work with that fear and experience to make the outlook to the phobia calmer with you in control.

Inevitably after time fear of the fear can be created such as worrying about the reaction-what if I scream, cry, wet myself? The fear of the fear can be simply removed by feeling in control of the situation, once the neural pathways have changed reaction to the original phobia completely transforms.

Phobic people rarely look to hypnotherapy unless there is a more pressing reason for removing the phobia- because it is hard to see life without the phobia and the fear of what the phobia represents.

Many fears and phobias can be cured in just 2 or 3 hypnotherapy sessions. Let go of the unnecessary fears and phobias once and for all, and be free!

On my recent visit to Florida I managed to get into a Rollercoaster with my family. The hypnosis was not as you see on the TV, very relaxing and calm. Karen
