If you suffer from a phobia, whether it's common, for example being scared of flying, scared of open spaces, scared of spiders or insects or wasps, or if your phobia is something less common e.g. fear of books, you know that the fear is real and can have a terrible effect on your life. Hypnosis is an accepted and powerful tool to help you live your life free of fear.
The original cause of the phobia can usually be traced back to early childhood. For instance, a fear of spiders is often thought to be hereditary. A child sees his or her parent scared of spiders and decides that this is appropriate behaviour. What follows is an inherited fear of spiders (or whatever the stimulus for the fear should happen to be.)
Phobias are in fact a fear of being afraid and demonstrate the brain's ability to learn instantly, potentially a very effective survival mechanism. However if you live in a country where fear of snakes or spiders is unnecessary due to their harmless nature then what you are actually left with is not a healthy fear but a nuisance phobia.
Hypnotherapy can help with phobias quickly and efficiently. Most can be treated in just a few sessions.
