Understanding the Common Nature of Phobias

There are many well-known ones such as arachnophobia (over 1 in 10 of us have an “irrational fear” of spiders as there are no dangerous spiders in the UK), social phobia also called social anxiety disorder (irrational fear of socialising or speaking in public which is just not dangerous) and aerophobia (fear of flying even though air crashes are very uncommon and unlikely).

Phobias are a common and often misunderstood psychological condition that can greatly impact a person’s life. Understanding the nature of your phobia is crucial in order to seek out and get the appropriate therapy for your individual phobias. Every person is different, the world they live in and how they perceive it are different and thus, your phobia is personal. We can help by creating a personalised therapy plan allowing you to begin the journey towards overcoming it. Call 07979 814388 for your treatment today.

What is a Personal Phobia?

Image of ant drawing by brgfx on FreepikAt its core, a personal phobia is an irrational fear of, or an aversion towards a specific thing, object, situation or activity. This fear you have as an individual makes it personal and it is often disproportionate to the actual danger posed, which is why we call it irrational. Individuals with phobias may experience intense anxiety, panic attacks and avoidance behaviours when confronted with their fear. The triggers for phobias can vary widely, from common things like ants, heights or water, to more unusual fears like balloons or clowns. This fear has come about for any number of personal reasons and or experiences you have had. Each person’s phobia will make them react as though the aforementioned ant is a direct threat to life and put us on full alert ready to run away. Yet, I hope you can see there is no real direct threat to life from an ant in the UK. Thus, it is all a manifestation of your mind. It is irrational and it is also personal to each individual who suffers.

Hypnotherapy & NLP Therapy for Phobias

Picture of a swinging watch a hypnosis classicOne such phobia therapy is hypnotherapy. It utilises hypnosis (a deeply relaxed, safe, dream like state) to access the subconscious mind and even explore the original root cause of the issue. By delving into the underlying emotions and beliefs associated with the fear, hypnotherapy can help individuals reframe their thoughts and responses to the phobia trigger, This then can lead to reduced anxiety and a greater sense of control. Putting you in control of your fear rather than it controlling you, just like we all want to be.

Another approach to treating phobias is through the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP has a great reputation for quickly helping people with phobias over the years and it works very well for most people. It is a psychological approach that focuses on the connection between our thoughts (neuro), language (linguistic) and behaviours (how we are programmed to react). Through NLP techniques, individuals can learn to reprogramme their thought patterns and thus their irrational reaction to whatever (object, animal, person, place, thing) is causing the issue.  It can help you to create new strategies for managing your fear so the trigger no longer acts like a trigger at all. You might see what you used to be afraid of and can calmly walk on by with no adverse reactions to it. This can result in a significant reduction in anxiety and an increased ability to face what used to be an issue peacefully with dignity. Just the way you want to.
