  • Bathophobia: this is the fear of slopes and or stairs it is is sometimes related to acrophobia. In bathophobia, the sufferer may panic when approaching a steep slope, even if they have no need to climb it. Although many people with bathophobia have acrophobia, most acrophobia sufferers do not also experience bathophobia.
  • Climacophobia: This fear is related to bathophobia, except that it normally happens only when the sufferer thinks about making a climb. If someone suffers from climacophobia, they’re often not anxious to see a steep set of stairs as long as they know they can remain safely at the bottom.

Fear of heights hypnotherapy – Symptoms of Acrophobia

Both psychologically and physically, the physical and emotional response to acrophobia is not unlike the response to any other phobia. They could include:

Emotional Symptoms: The sufferer may feel a sense of panic when they perceive that they’re high off the ground. They may panic and start to search for something to cling to and find that they’re unable to trust their own sense of balance. Common reactions include descending immediately, crawling on all fours, and kneeling or otherwise lowering your body.

Physical Symptoms: they may begin to shake, sweat, experience heart palpitations, and even cry or yell out. They may feel terrified and paralyzed, this is known as the fight or flight response. It might even become difficult to think.

Anxiety and Avoidance: My clients report to me that they will begin to dread situations that may cause them to spend time in high places. For example, they tell me that they worry that an upcoming vacation will put them in a hotel room on a high floor. Some may even  put off home repairs for fear of climbing a ladder. Others have told me that they might avoid visiting friends’ homes if they have balconies or upstairs picture windows.

However, the one thing that they all have in common is that they can overcome their fear with just one session of fear of heights hypnotherapy.

The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist whether for fear of heights 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 heights 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.
