How Hypnotherapy can help?

There is little traditional medical science can do for phobias other than prescribe an anti-depressant, which as we know only deals with the symptoms.

However, hypnotherapy can in most cases eliminate phobias. Although there are several different tools and techniques that a Hypnotherapist can use the most powerful one is that which neutralizes the powerful, negative feeling that underpin the phobia. Remember: most people learned to be phobic in a single situation that was either fearful or perceived to be fearful. The fact that individuals can do what psychologists call “one-trial learning” is proof that a person’s brain can learn quite rapidly. That ability to learn rapidly makes it easy for you to learn a new way to respond to any phobia. The part of you that has been protecting you all these years by making you phobic is an important and valuable part. We want to preserve its ability to protect you in dangerous or fearful situations. The purpose of this technique is to refine and improve your brain’s ability to protect you by updating its information. Typically a phobia can be neutralised in 2 sessions, however it is important to recognise that sometimes it is necessary to do hypno-analysis if the cause of the phobia is not known. This can be 5/6 sessions. During the initial information taking session the Hypnotherapist will provide guidance on which methodology will provide the best outcome.

Facts About Fears and Phobias

A phobia (from the Greek: Phóbos, meaning “fear” or “morbid fear”) is, when used in the context of clinical psychology, a type of anxiety disorder. Usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer goes out of their way to avoid, this behaviour can be described as irrational and excessive. These fears can interfere significantly with an individual’s life and lead to considerable anxiety and stress. In some cases these fears and phobias can escalate into a full-scale anxiety attack. As a consequence, some individuals begin to isolate themselves, leading to severe difficultly in living a normal life.

Types of Phobias

There are a large number of phobias but most are condensed into the follow six categories:

  • Social phobias – fears of social situations
  • Agoraphobia – fear of being trapped in inescapable place or situation.

  • Animal Fears – fear of snakes, rodents, spiders etc.
  • Medical – fear of blood, injections, visiting a dentist or doctor etc.
