Phobias

Most people have one or two minor irrational fears, but if such a fear has become so intense that it interferes with normal day to day life it can be looked upon as a phobia.

A phobia is an excessive or unreasonable fear of an object or situation that poses no real or significant threat. Although there is no real threat, the phobic response produces exactly the same physiological changes as a healthy fear reaction does to a real threat, resulting in some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations
  • Abnormal or rapid heart beat
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Choking sensation
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or stomach upset
  • Feeling dizzy or light headed
  • Feelings of unreality or detachment
  • Fear of losing control or going mad
  • Fear of dying
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Hot or cold flushes
  • Fear of fainting

If you have a phobia you probably realize that your fear is unreasonable, but still find yourself unable to control it. On being exposed to the object or situation that triggers your phobic response you experience feelings of anxiety and fear ranging from mild apprehension to a full panic attack. 

How we can help you

If your phobia interferes with your normal daily life, or prevents you from doing things you would otherwise enjoy, it is time to seek help.

Hypnotherapy and NLP are widely recognized for their success in treating phobias. A short course of therapy using these techniques invariably brings a positive outcome.
