Overcome Phobias in NottinghamOvercome Phobias in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire

Phobias can create all kinds of challenges, and for some, cause huge negative impact on their day to day lives.

The extreme reaction that can be experienced with a Phobia can be overwhelming, with unpleasant physical and emotional feelings of panic.

When this strong reaction occurs, you may have little power to stop this - and it is not your fault.  Your subconscious mind may be running an old program of the fear, that at some point in the past it believed you needed - perhaps for protection or safety.

Now however, this Phobia program has continued when it is no longer helpful for you, and is probably stopping you from doing things you would like to do, or has you avoiding certain situations.

To summarise how Phobias work:-

  • Fears are usually a protective mechanism – an over-reaction of our natural subconscious defence mechanisms.
  • The triggers for an inappropriate fear remain stored in the subconscious  running over and over like old recordings (until we reconnect with the subconscious to resolve these)

Quick and Effective Relief

By connecting directly with the subconscious with hypnosis we can utilise this rapid and natural ability of the subconscious to unlearn the inappropriate fear, often just as quickly as it was when first created.

It is important to point out:- It is not required for you to be put into contact with the source of your Phobia during any sessions

Over the last 20 years, I have supported many clients with overcoming unwanted fears and Phobias - with clients visiting from all over the UK. When working to help you overcome Phobias I also draw upon advanced and specialist skills training.

Typical Phobias

There are hundreds of different types of Phobias relating to different stimuli. Here are a few of the Phobias I have worked with in the past:-

Arachnophobia (fear of spiders) is one of the most common phobias, affecting around 30% of the population. This fear can cause minor discomfort all the way up to severe anxiety and panic attacks.

Another common phobia is acrophobia, which affects roughly 5% of the population. It can produce acute anxiety, dizziness, and nausea, making it difficult to climb stairs or cross bridges for people who are affected.

Agoraphobia is the fear of being in public places or situations where escape may be difficult or embarrassing. It affects approximately 1% of the population and can result in panic attacks, avoidance behaviour, and social isolation.

Claustrophobia is another more common phobia, affecting approximately 4% of the population. In small settings, those suffering from claustrophobia may have panic attacks, shortness of breath, and a sense of suffocation.

Fear of darkness or nightfall is a phobia that affects roughly 10% of the population. It can cause anxiety, panic attacks, and sleep problems.

Ophidiophobia is another frequent phobia that affects roughly 1% of the population. It can induce extreme anxiety and panic attacks, and persons who suffer with it may avoid hiking, camping, or other outdoor activities where they might come into contact with snakes.

Emetophobia, also known as a fear of vomiting, is a specific phobia characterised by an intense and irrational fear of vomit or vomiting. People with emetophobia may fear that they will vomit themselves, fear being around others who are vomiting, or fear the sound, sight, or smell of vomit. This fear can be so intense that it interferes with daily life, causing people to avoid situations where they might be exposed to vomit, such as public transportation, hospitals, or social events.

Trypophobia, or the dread of small, clustered holes or bumps, is a relatively new phobia that affects approximately 10% of the population. It can instill fear, revulsion, and even bodily feelings like as nausea and goosebumps.

Hemophobia is a widespread phobia that affects approximately 3% of the population. It might result in panic episodes, dizziness, and avoidance of medical procedures or injuries.

Social phobia is defined as the dread of social situations or being judged by others, and it affects approximately 7% of the population. Extreme anxiety, avoidance behaviour, and social isolation can result.

Aerophobia is another common phobia that affects approximately 6.5% of the population. When faced with the idea of flying, it might produce panic attacks, avoidance behaviour, and intense anxiety.

Peace of Mind

Rest assured that you are not required to have contact with any triggers during appointments to overcome phobias.

The work to be undertaken will be explained to you clearly, allowing you to relax, and feel comfortable with the process.  Many people with phobic experiences like to firstly attend for a Free Consultation to chat about how hypnotherapy can help and what may take place during a session.
