A phobia is a disproportionate fear triggered by an object or situation. Fear of flying, lifts, heights, agoraphobia (fear of going out), arachnophobia (fear of spiders) and claustrophobia are amongst the more common phobias, but actually you can develop a phobia about anything if you work at it!

In a fully developed phobia the level of fear is completely over the top, cannot be reasoned with, seems out of  control and leads you to avoid the feared situation. Phobias can be learnt through traumatic events, over-attention to unpleasant experiences and also from other people’s over-the-top reactions.

The good news is that phobias can often be resolved in just a few sessions of hypnotherapy and the effects can be positively life changing. Imagine going out to the shops or to social events for the first time in years and being able to relax and enjoy yourself. Remember, a phobia is not something that is wrong with you, nor is it something you inherited. It is a process you learnt, for whatever reason, so you can learn a new process and get a better result, often very quickly.
