Hypnotherapy for Phobias
Most people have an irrational fear or two. Perhaps the thought of needles makes your knees go wobbly, heights may make you feel dizzy, and mice may leave you jumping for the nearest chair. For the most part these fears are minimal, and have no long term effect on day to day living. For some however, the effects of such fears can be devastating, causing tremendous anxiety and preventing the individual from living a happy existence.
If a fear has become irrational and disabling, it has become a phobia. A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. Common phobias and fears include closed-in places, heights, motorway driving, flying, snakes, needles, the list goes on…
Phobias are irrational and unfounded fears which simply bypass your conscious rational thinking process leading to panic and/or avoidance of the feared thing. They can happen to anyone and have a crippling effect on our freedom to enjoy life to the full. They say nothing about your strength of character, your intelligence or your willpower.
