A phobia is the more common form of anxiety, with around 16% of the population suffering from some form of phobia, possibly more.
It is an intense, sometimes extreme or persistent fear of certain things, situations or people, the main symptom of which is to run away as far as possible from the particular thing that scares us. It is when this irrational fear becomes so intense that it gets beyond our control and interferes with our daily life that it is then usually classed as an anxiety.
Hypnotherapy for phobias – Why do I have a phobia?
If you are a phobia sufferer, the cause of the phobia is usually traced right back to childhood. This is known as ISE, Initial Sensitising Event. For example, if a child sees their Mum or Dad scared of ladybirds, the child will then decide this is normal behaviour and become scared of them too. So the child’s phobia of ladybirds is born and becomes firmly and deeply set in their subconscious mind.
The fear for a phobia sufferer can be limitless. It can be so deeply rooted within the sufferers subconscious mind that any rational thoughts are essentially kicked out.
Hypnotherapy for phobias is extremely effective is relieving the sufferer from their particular phobia, as it helps the hypnotherapist to correspond with the sufferers thought processes and break their current irrational thoughts.

Phobias begin from a mixture of external events and internal predispositions. Lots of phobias can be traced back to a certain triggering event. This is normally a traumatic experience at an early age. By using hypnotherapy our therapists can eliminate the emotion that is attached to that event, allowing a different response to be installed instead.
