Phobias can be divided into three main categories:

  • Specific phobias
    Specific phobias are those generally related to a single trigger such as a fear of flying, fear of dogs, fear of heights, fear of spiders etc.
  • Social phobias
    Social phobias or social anxiety are generally fears to do with fears relating to our performance with or around other people. These can cause us to experience severe anxiety when faced with normal, everyday situations. Social phobias are some of the most common phobias and generally respond well to hypnosis.

To do so may be followed by an onset of panic attacks which the sufferer of agoraphobia will avoid at any cost. This results in a limited ability to enjoy life as avoidance of “unsafe” places becomes the norm.
