Hypnotherapy and Phobia

Phobias and fears are produced by internal anxieties that become associated with particular situations. Fear of animals, objects, insects, actions or places, etc. The fear experienced can be irrational and intense that it can have a significant impact on the individuals life and how you live it.  Phobias are classified as anxiety disorders and share many symptoms with other anxiety disorders.

Phobias are far more common than many people realise. It is estimated that more than 11% of the population has some kind of irrational fear.

With literally thousands of different phobias affecting people in a wide variety of different ways, from completely debilitating fears to milder, yet fatiguing, uncomfortable or just plain annoying fears that are hard to break away from Hypnowellbeing can help you. There are several theories behind why phobias develop, from evolutionary or behavioural theories to phobias that develop from a negative event that happened in the past or more recently.


Some common phobias:

Arachnophobia – The fear of spiders is a very common phobia that can trigger panic attacks

Agoraphobia – The fear of not being able to escape, often triggered in crowded or open spaces

Acrophobia – Is the fear of heights and can trigger anxiety or panic attacks

Cynophobia – Also known as the fear of dogs. Usually associated with personal bad experiences with dogs, such as bites

Mysophobia – Is the fear of dirt and germs and can often lead to more severe obsessive compulsive disorders

Trypanophobia – Known as the fear of injections. This often goes untreated because the sufferer avoids these situations


Other Common Phobias Are: Flying, Elevators, Insects, Water, Public Speaking, Open Spaces, Eating in Public & Traveling in the Underground


Hypnotherapy and phobias


It is important to remember that phobias are based on a particular mental state and can be treated with different forms of cognitive or behavioural therapies. Using hypnotherapy and a verity of therapeutic techniques combines psychotherapy with hypnotherapy. This form of therapy allows clients to release emotions in a supportive environment, enabling each client to move forward without carrying the burden of past phobias. The number of sessions required depends entirely on the individual and the nature of the problem.
