Hypnotherapy for phobias
Gain control of your life by treating fears and phobias naturally.
Social phobia or other specific phobias such as fear of flying, spiders, dentists or agoraphobia can be treated. Also lesser known phobias such as Catoptrophobia (fear of mirrors) or Ornithophobia (fear of birds) for example.
Causes of phobia
Phobias-fears often begin early in an individual’s life and may occur for a number of reasons. It seems phobias can run in families; however whether this is hereditary or simply learned behaviour is unclear. For example a child may learn a phobia by observing a family member’s reaction to an object or situation. Traumatic experiences and brain chemicals are also believed to influence the development of phobias.
Treatment for phobias
Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root cause of the phobia and enable individuals to react to the particular object or situation they once feared in a calmer manner when encountering it in the future. Phobias are displaced fears and because they are not rational, they can be dealt with.
Hypnotherapy can also help with relaxation and visualisation techniques for desensitisation and forming new habits such as being more calm and relaxed.
