Hypnotherapy fear of spiders
Hypnotherapy fear of spiders. Arachnophobia is the medical name for fear of spiders. It can affect anyone and is one of the most common phobias in the UK if not in Europe. A survey in England suggests that spider size, colour and leg length were the most important reasons offered for being afraid of spiders. For many people, the threat of sudden and quick movement by a spider is an integral part of the fear.
Where did a fear come from?
This phobia is often the result of a stressful encounter with a spider in childhood, though the person may have forgotten entirely the original contact. The dread can be a mild, inconvenient feeling, or it can be so intense that it triggers a full-blown panic attack (In Psychology, we call this the Fight or Flight response). Anyone who has never experienced a phobic reaction cannot appreciate what is going on, and will think the sufferer is ‘irrational’.
How did it happen?
The fear takes over because of a distressing incident when someone saw a spider or spiders and for some ‘good reason,’ felt alarmed and fear at the same time. This set up a conditioned response: see spiders, feel afraid, panic, this is referred to as Classical Conditioning in Psychology. This is an automatic, subconscious reaction – beyond conscious control. It is not because the sufferer is cowardly or weak: it can happen to anyone. The question is: what to do to stop this happening to anyone? If someone have a spider phobia, there are things that they can do to get rid of it for good quickly.
Hypnotherapy fear of spiders I use the power of hypnotherapy to help my client stop the fear of spiders affecting them ever again. I show them how to use specific anti-phobia techniques. These allow them to change their automatic response to a spider in a subconscious manner: they learn how to regain control of their fear.
Hypnotherapy is a direct approach to the problem, makes a powerful tool for generating positive change, quickly and permanently.
How long will it take to stop a fear of spiders?
Because I use tried and trusted methods, my clients will need only one one-hour session; I have never met anyone who needs two sessions.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis, which is an altered state of consciousness. Contrary to myth and popular belief at no time during the session are you in a trance or unaware of your surroundings. Instead, you are in a very relaxed state of mind.
