Hypnotherapy for Phobias -Phobias are far more common than you may think. It is estimated that more than 11% of UK adults have irrational fear.
A phobia is an irrational fear, a fear without logic. People with phobias have unwanted reactions to a range of stimuli including animals, insects, objects, actions or places.
In psychology this physical response is known as a stress response. My clients often describe this as being ‘paralysed with fear’ or ‘having butterflies in my stomach’ or ‘just wanting to run away’ from whatever is causing the response. My clients will often know that their response is illogical, making it harder to understand or accept, with Hypnotherapy for phobias they will conquer their fear. . People often manage their phobia on a day-to-day basis by avoiding the cause and they only contact me when it becomes a serious problem or significantly impairs their life. Sometimes people are motivated to seek help because they don’t want their children to learn the phobia whatever the reason hypnotherapy for phobias gives them their lives back.

How do people get phobias?
An irrational fear is a learned behaviour, perhaps from a parent or through a traumatic experience. As a child we learn our fears from (consciously and unconsciously) how to live and relate to the world around us. If a parent is frightened of dogs the child’s instinctive response and the message hardwired in the brain may be that dogs are a threat. Over time, the child avoids dogs and avoiding the cause is likely to compound the fear and make it worse.
