To be human is to experience fear at some point or another.
It’s part and parcel of the “human condition.”
Fear, in a very real way, is important for our survival. You could say that it’s an instinctual response… hard-wired into our brain to help us, as a species, survive the many dangers in our world.
For example, should you look out your front door today and find a wild animal outside, say a wolf or ferocious dog, the fearful reaction you would experience would be all-too normal. Unfortunately, for some people the occasional experience of fear – a fearful reaction to “some-thing” can become a phobia – a constant fear of the possibility of “some-thing” happening.
Understanding fears and phobia
Phobias and fears can have many symptoms. Some of the symptoms may or may not be…
- an increased heart rate
- heavy breathing
- increased blood pressure
- sweaty palms
…usually leaving you overwhelmed and making changes to your daily life or routine in order to avoid these feelings.
Fear, in many instances, is a rational feeling. After all, it is fear which often alerts us of danger and helps to protect us from harm. A phobia, on the other hand, is an irrational thought and can inhibit your ability to live a full and complete life.
As humans we have a fight or flight response and our adrenal glands secrete a surge of hormones called epinephrine in our bodies. This was designed for us to escape danger.
In moments of fear your brain gets set to super sensitive, alerting you to be careful and proceed with caution. This is a very helpful response when presented with a dangerous situation — the “fight or flight” instinct that helped our ancestors to survive so many centuries ago.
But it’s not a very helpful or useful response when danger is not present. Unfortunately, many people have this response to everyday situations, such as:
- flying on an airplane
- riding in an elevator
- taking a cruise
- taking an exam
- seeing bugs or snakes
- and even the fear of clowns.
This list can go on forever as we are all unique and everyone has their own experiences in life creating your own individual phobias. If this sounds all-too-familiar to you then you already know how phobia can cast a shadow over your life, preventing you from living life to the fullest.
When you are afraid of living you are not living!
When immanent danger is not present but your fear remains, when your body reacts “as if” there is a perceived life and death situation you don’t need me to point out to you that it can impact your lifestyle. Phobias often get in the way of living the life you want. You become a prisoner trapped within the “safe” boundaries marked out by your phobia.
So what can you do?
Why hypnosis works for fears and phobias
What is your worry, anxiety, panic or phobia costing you?
And what if there was a proven, safe and effective way for how to stop anxiety, fears and phobias… once and for all? Well, the good news for you is that there is a very effective way to deal with irrational fears, and it’s through hypnosis.
Hypnosis creates a relaxed state which is safe and drug free with no side effects. Many refer to it as a brain massage. In just a few hypnosis sessions your life can change so drastically for the better you can start to live the way you always wanted.
Hypnosis is extremely successful in eliminating phobias and is safe and long lasting.
Hypnosis for fear works because your subconscious mind is powerful and will realize through a few hypnosis sessions the irrationality of the phobia. We will get to the root of the problem and change the thoughts which created the phobia in the first place. There are a wide variety of techniques I will use to help you with your phobia such as visualization, auto-suggestions, NLP, EFT and hypnosis.
All of these methods combined help the subconscious mind realize the irrationality of the thought which creates the phobia. And you can experience this in the comfort of your own home.
So how does it work?
In essence you are “reprogramming” or teaching your mind to think differently about the situation, for example fear of flying, so that you can be more relaxed and at ease with the experience which once set your heart racing.
Hypnosis will help to cure the real fear that is deep within your subconscious. Then you will overcome your fears and phobias, regardless of which situation or situations “sets it off” for you. And the good news is that you can experience hypnosis sessions by Skype or phone, so you don’t necessarily have to find a hypnotherapist near you.
