What are Fears / Phobias?
A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. Phobias are when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.
If you are experiencing a fear or phobia you know this to be extremely uncomfortable, debilitating and impacts you from being able to enjoy certain aspects of life.
This is a belief that has been created from a past negative experience. The belief being that certain objects, places, situations, feelings or animals are very scary and the sub conscious mind being the protective part of the mind has created this belief and fear to keep us away from this dangerous situation to protect us, so we do not have to experience a similar situation.
How can Clinical Hypnotherapy help with Fears / Phobias?
With Hypnotherapy we have the ability to access the sub conscious mind, this is the part of the mind that deals with emotions, protects us and where we hold our beliefs. This is where we can find the root cause for the fear or phobia. Once we have found the root cause we can obtain the learning and understanding, release the emotion and to change the belief. From the current belief that this object, place, situation, feeling or animal is extremely dangerous to the new belief where you are able to have a rational response.
