There are, in the main, two types of phobias. There is the simple phobia where a person reacts negatively when they come into contact with the thing that causes fear, i.e. dentists, needles or spiders. Then there is the complex phobia which causes fear and anxiety continually.
Here’s examples of phobias and fears we deal with:
Simple phobias – fear of animals, worms, birds, insects, snakes, rodents, particular objects such as buttons, telephones, certain materials, asymmetrical things, mirrors, clowns, weeds, food and disorder/untidiness, hospitals, vomiting, body image, heights, flying, pain, being trapped, choking, touching, germs and disease.
Agoraphobia – the feel of being away from one’s own safe circle, this can be a small as one room, or as large as one’s home town or even country.
Social phobia – fear of any kind of social situation which involves other people e.g. walking down the street, crossing the road, standing in a queue, visiting a restaurant, attending meetings and public speaking.
Claustrophobia – fear of enclosed spaces such as lifts, buses, planes, own home, trains, cinemas and theatres.
Physical phobias – fear of the sight of blood, injections, needles, blood pressure, child birth measurement, surgery, sex, and fear of the doctor or dentist.
Some people experience more than one of the above phobias, for example a social phobic may become agoraphobic because of their fear of meeting people. Someone with a fear of flying may be claustrophobic and not be able to use the train or the tube. If you do not see the issue you wish to resolve please contact Christine who will be pleased to help.
If you have a phobia/inappropriate fear, then you probably realise that your fear is out of proportion with reality and you are unable to control your feelings. Just thinking about the situation or object of your fear, may make you anxious. Being exposed to the thing you fear, feels overwhelming and the panic beyond your control. As humans we fear the unknown, however when we learn to face the fear, it becomes a 'known', and the fear disappears.
The fear response is useful to us to keep us safe and out of danger but in our modern world it’s usually not necessary, using hypnotherapy we can help you put your fears into perspective which will allow you to take control of your mind.
As the triggers for the Phobia/Fear comes from the subconscious, hypnosis is a quick, effective and comfortable way to reach your subconscious and relieve you of the Phobia/Fear. By using hypnotherapy we are able to break down the fear thought patterns, and prevent them recurring.
