Fear and phobia removal

Hypnotherapy is probably best known for its success in the removal of fears and phobias. A phobia is an overwhelming fear of something that even the mere thought of affects the sufferer. Some phobic’s can not even say the name of their phobia without breaking out in a sweat. Phobias do not just go away, usually they become stronger with time.

A phobia can be very debilitating for some people, especially if their fear is of something that they come in contact with on a daily basis. Some of the more common fears and phobia’s involve things like animals, water, heights, flying, insects, driving, lifts, hospitals and the dentist. It doesn’t matter what it is or how silly it may seem to others, to the sufferer its terrifying!

Some sufferers of phobia’s are consciously aware of what causes their fear while others are unaware of what causes the bad feelings. A phobia usually starts with a single traumatic event. Sometimes this initial traumatic event is hidden by the subconscious mind for protection, especially if it occurred in early childhood. The sufferer won’t be able to pinpoint their fear because its beneath their conscious awareness.

Phobias can be divided into simple phobias and complex phobias. Examples of simple phobias are things like spider phobias, flying phobias and dental phobias.. Complex phobias include problems like agoraphobia and social anxiety.

Because phobias are generated in the subconscious mind they are very difficult to overcome by talking about them and uncomfortable to deal with by using aversion therapies. This is why psychotherapy, counselling and CBT are so ineffective when dealing with phobias.

Phobias are automatic responses designed to protect us from harm. Hypnosis can be used to access the subconscious mind and change the negative programs that keep them in place.

The elimination of simple phobia’s is usually very quick but more complex phobia’s may take a little longer if it involves childhood trauma resolution.
