.What is phobia and fear?
A phobia is an irrational or exaggerated fear of something with little or no real danger or threat. Most people with a phobia are aware of the irrational nature of the fear but have almost no control over their anxiety.
This is where we have unfounded concerns about something that poses little to no risk to us. People also interchangeably refer to these responses as nerves, phobias, or anxiety.
As we often pass them around for decades, phobias often develop during childhood and become exacerbated during adulthood. Typically, phobias are exaggerated; subconsciously, we feel as if we have no power over those emotions without being mindful that the anxiety is unfounded on a conscious level.
Phobia and Fear Symptoms:
- Increased heart rate.
- Trembling or shaking.

Fight and Flight Response
Phobias are irrational fears that can be very extreme – just thinking about the trigger might cause a high level of anxiety, including a racing heart, blood rushing into your legs, sweaty palms, fear of dying, fear of fainting, and shortness of breath. The body goes into a fight or flight response when faced with the perceived danger. Most phobias are rooted in an early childhood or adolescence experience.
If the anxiety causes you to avoid certain situations, interferes with your everyday life, and makes you extremely anxious, you might want to consider treatment.
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnotherapy works on a subconscious level where the phobia needs to be released. Most people feel empowered and more in control after only one session. When the brain has learned to respond differently to the perceived danger, fear or phobia quite often disappears and loses its power.
My approach is gentle and client-centered. I will not make you “face” something that you fear or expose you to something you are afraid of.
In our Practice, Therapeutic Hypnotherapy with the combination of NLP and Cognitive-behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an efficient treatment to change your perception that you are not safe and healthy. It’s about going through this danger for the very first time you have been challenged and enabling this belief to be reframed in the current. This provides our clients with new ways of seeing that they are in no danger and can release the anxiety involved with the situation.
Hypnotherapy/NLP for Fears and Phobias is used to reprogram your mind’s reaction to the triggers.
