Phobias and Fears
Do you experience an irrational fear of insects, animals, objects or situations? Hypnotherapy, in conjunction with NLP, is well known for it’s success in overcoming these distressing, and often life-inhibiting, conditions.
Some of the more common fears and phobias include:
Bees and Wasps
Enclosed or Open Spaces
What is a phobia?
A phobia is an extreme form of fear. If someone breaks into a cold sweat, trembles, screams or has any other distressing symptoms at the sight of a mouse, for example, he or she is probably suffering from a phobia.
Hypnosis can be most effective in releasing these unhelpful, negative states.
Why do people develop phobias?
Clients often say that nothing has happened to cause their phobia. It is simply something they’ve either always been afraid of or that just occurred for no reason. The phobia may have arisen because of exposure to an event in the past. The response to the event becomes an embedded trigger, and the unconscious mind represses the initial event. Sometimes the phobia has been picked up passed on or learnt from a parent or other authority figure earlier in life. People don’t become afraid without reason. The originating event might not have been particularly traumatic at the time but is likely to have caused an emotional conflict, or been anchored by a negative response. Phobias can also occur spontaneously following losing someone close or during periods of extreme stress.
