Hypnosis to overcome phobias
Of the many reasons clients visit New Farm Hypnotherapy, phobias are one of the most common. One in nine people have a phobia of some sort and one in twenty people have panic attacks at some stage in their lives, these quite commonly triggered by a phobia. A phobia is an irrational fear, the experience of which can produce an irrational response. Some common phobias are:
- Arachnophobia – fear of spiders
- Aerophobia or aviophobia – fear of flying, click here for more information about flying phobia
- Acrophobia – fear of heights
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.
Literally translated from the Greek, agoraphobia means “fear of the marketplace”. Agoraphobia is a generalised fear of leaving a familiar place or area which is deemed safe, such as your home. 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.
Overcome phobias using hypnotherapy
Phobias may be very common but they nothing more than a learnt response to a particular set of circumstances. Because phobias are learnt responses, they can also be “unlearnt” and this is where hypnotherapy and NLP help. Phobias are subconscious responses that are triggered automatically at a subconscious level. Using hypnosis to overcome phobias you can make changes to automatic, unconscious thought processes and effectively reprogram how you respond in particular situations. NLP and hypnotherapy are powerful therapeutic processes that can will help you overcome your phobia permanently. The phobias we most often are asked to help with include, fear of flying, social phobias, the fear of public speaking, spider and snake phobias and phobias about injections and medical treatment.
