Hypnotherapy for Fears and Phobias
Do you suffer from phobias or irrational fears?
Have you ever settled for a holiday that you and your family didn’t really want, just to avoid flying? Or had to sleep downstairs on the sofa just because you saw a spider in your bedroom? Or perhaps you just can’t bring yourself to go to the dentist, even though your teeth are in need of attention?
Phobias and irrational fears can be extremely frustrating. Even though logically you know that the thing you are afraid of is harmless, you are unable to unable to change your emotional response to it.
Why am I scared of spiders?
What has happened is that somehow your subconscious mind has mistakenly identified the object of your phobia as a threat, and is trying to protect you from it. Once the subconscious has made this connection, your fear response will be triggered and your fight or flight system activated every time you come into contact with the phobic object - in this case spiders. As it’s a subconscious response, it’s very difficult to address on a conscious level.
How can Hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy, NLP and EMDR are great tools for changing an inappropriate response to a stimulus - in this case a fear or phobia. While you are in hypnosis we can work with your subconscious mind directly, and help you to break that link between the phobic object and the fear.
People can have phobias and irrational fears about almost anything: spiders, dogs, snakes, elevators, flying, driving, heights, the dentist… all of these can be treated with Hypnotherapy.
So although it’s fine to dislike spiders, if you find yourself sleeping on the sofa again because you saw a spider in your bedroom, you may feel that that’s an overreaction that you want to change.
Why not try Hypnotherapy? You might be surprised how easy it is to let go of the fear.
