Hypnotherapy for Fears & Phobias

Overcome a Phobia with Hypnotherapy in Edinburgh

Everyone gets afraid from time to time. For some of us though, certain fears or phobias begin to take over our thinking and control areas of our lives. There is nothing we can-not develop phobias about and over 10% of us are affected at sometime in our lives. Examples include: fear of flying, spiders, heights, needles, visiting the dentist, certain animals and public speaking; in fact the list is endless.

The fear may have been triggered by a single, frightening experience; learned or copied from someone else or gradually crept into our lives over time. It may well be that we don’t know the cause but the reality is that its affects our daily lives.

These fears and phobias may prevent you from doing things you want or need to do; keep you from forming close relationships or even leave you isolated in your own home. Fears and phobias often overshadow life’s enjoyable moments, leaving you feeling hopeless and powerless.

Faced with our fears we become extremely anxious; rapid breathing, racing pulse and tense muscles. We may try to shut out the problem by closing our eyes, running away or hiding. However most of us try not to face it at all and avoid any potentially risky situation at all costs. These are all natural reactions our body has developed to keep us safe from harm. But with fears and phobias, the harm is usually only perceived and not necessarily real. This doesn’t make the impact any easier but these types of fears and phobias can be conquered.
