Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.
Phobias are the most common forms of anxiety disorders. If a phobia becomes very severe, you may organise your life around avoiding the thing that causes you anxiety. As well as restricting your day to day life, it can also cause a lot of distress. The basic feature of any phobia is a conflict between the conscious and subconscious processes in your mind. A person who consciously wants to overcome their fear of spiders may try everything they consciously can to do it, but will still fail as long as their subconscious mind retains this terror and prevents the person from succeeding. The subconscious mind has no logic. Progress can only be made by reprogramming the subconscious so that deep seated instincts and beliefs are abolished or altered.
Almost all phobias can be successfully treated and cured. The aim of therapy is to correct the oversensitivity in your mind.
A course of hypnotherapy may involve identifying why your phobia developed in the first place and addressing this allowing a different response to be installed.
Hypnotherapy and other techniques are used to teach you coping strategies which enable you to stay calm and relaxed whenever you are confronted by potentially phobia inducing things or situations.
Every course of treatment is bespoke and tailored to your specific requirements.
If a fear affects your ability to function in your daily life, at work, at home or socially, then now might be the time to consider hypnotherapy.
Control your phobia and don’t let it control you!
Make the rest of your life the best of your life.
