The fear of germs is a type of phobia that is

concentrated around an severe and totally irrational fear of germs, dirt, or contamination of any kind. Of course, I am not saying it is abnormal to be careful and to be concerned about issues such as bacteria or viruses, exposure to the bodily fluids, and maintaining good hygiene. However, if a person has mysophobia, these normal acts of being careful become overblown and disruptive to the sufferers, and those around them everyday lives. In my 30+ years of clinical practice I have found the phobia is often manifests itself in the form of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), but clients who don’t have OCD can have it as well. I have found that this phobia is common and can affect people from all walks of life. Just like other phobias it can be easily helped with just one session of fear of germs hypnotherapy.


The most common symptoms of mysophobia I have observed include avoidance behaviours that are used to stay clear of exposure to germs or any form of contamination. The most common symptoms I have observed include:

  • Staying away from places that the sufferer perceives contain a lot of germs or dirt
  • Illogical fear of becoming contaminated
  • Excessive and continuous hand washing rituals
  • Obsessing over standards of cleanliness and never being satisfied with same.
  • The overuse of cleaning or sanitizing products
  • An irrational fear of contaminating others.

If the sufferer of mysophobia is exposed to what they perceive as contamination, they may experience severe symptoms when they are exposed to dirt or bacteria. Such symptoms are:

  • Crying
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shaking
  • Sweating

These symptoms are referred to a the fight or flight response and often may only occur only when the object of sufferers phobia is visible, as is the case when digging in a garden, or when they believe that germ contact may have occurred, such as when shaking hands with someone or using a doorknob. They may take several showers each day. They might carry and use hand sanitizer frequently. They may be unwilling to use public toilets, share food, or use public transportation.

But do not despair help is at hand with fear of germs hypnotherapy. With just one easy and affordable session of fear of germs hypnotherapy I will help you to live a normal life.

The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist whether for fear of germs hypnotherapy or indeed any other therapy, is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising fear of germs hypnotherapy and other therapies, who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications. You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association. If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, which only comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist, this is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.
