A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation.
These anxieties are extremely common. More than 10% of people will experience a simple phobia at some time in their lives. From elevators, spiders and birds, to heights, dentists, to open spaces and fear of being alone. Phobias may range from mild to severe.
Hypnosis provides an extremely effective cure for these problems as it provides the opposite of anxiety - deep relaxation. At the same time, it teaches the mind a different way of responding to the feared object or situation. Hypnosis for phobias works by detaching the stimulus (trigger object) from the emotional response (fear) and 'updating' the brain with a new, more realistic response.*
Relaxation and breathing exercises help to ease symptoms and a tailored hypnotherapy programme can help to eradicate the phobia.
