The origin of a phobia doesn't have to be associated with a traumatic or unpleasant event earlier on in life, a phobia or fear can be triggered during a time of high anxiety. The subconscious, noting high anxiety, steps in with a panic behavior which we can then begin to associate with an object, place or event. Fears and phobias can be extremely debilitating and restricting in many areas of life.
The process enables the person to disassociate from the fear/phobia, using specific techniques that enable the emotion to be taken out of the experience. More realistic patterns of thought are then developed helping the individual’s subconscious to become indifferent to the particular object of fear so that they will be less affected by it in the future.
In the therapy room, we see many different types of phobias and fears, many can seem irrational to other people, but to the person suffering, they are very real and come with an uncontrollable reaction. When these fears or phobias start to have a negative impact on one’s life, hypnotherapy can help.
Using hypnotherapy, phobias can be resolved within four sessions.
