People turn up at my practice with all sorts of phobias: from social phobias to fear of flying, lifts, going underground, fear of heights, open spaces, closed spaces, fear of insects, dogs, cats, the dark, relationships and so on. In fact, a phobia can take many forms and a person can become phobic of almost anything.
The phobic reaction is an inappropriate response to a stimulus that was at one time an appropriate response to a situation. However, the old response is now no longer appropriate to present-day situations. Of course, people come in saying they don’t know why they have a particular phobia, but at a deep unconscious level, they do. Without even delving to that extremely deep unconscious level, phobias of all kinds, including social phobias can be alleviated quickly with hypnosis, systematic desensitisation, reframing, and lots of ego-strengthening.
When you’re suffering your inappropriate phobic reaction you tend to think that you are the only person in the world but you are not. You’re not alone. It is common. People from all walks of life experience different kinds of phobias at different times of their lives.
Treatment for phobias can be done very successfully using hypnotherapy. Many millions of people before you have resolved their phobias and gone on to live an unrestricted life. I have also seen more than a thousand people in my office who have experienced overcoming fear, particularly with hypnotherapy.
Also being a naturopath I take a more naturalistic approach and avoid medications in my treatment for phobias, although I may sometimes prescribed some calming herbs but generally, with overcoming phobias, even those are not needed.
A thing is only hard to do when you don’t know how to do it, or don’t know how not to do it, or you don’t know how to not know how to do it. So don’t suffer unnecessarily from your old phobic reaction. It is a waste of your life. Take action now to get treatment for you phobia and set yourself free.
