Many people don’t know the difference between a fear or a phobia. In fact, many people think that they are the same thing and that a phobia is a more extreme version of a fear. This simply is not true.
Fear, which may range from minor to extreme, is recognized by a logical threat and involves flight or flight. An example might be that when you were a child you petted an unfamiliar dog and it bit you. Now, you steer clear of dogs. This is not a phobia but a fear.
A phobia, on the other hand, typically has no basis in reality, and is usually developed in adulthood. A phobia is an irrational, persistent fear of a certain object or situation. Examples of a specific phobia may involve a fear of small animals, closed in spaces and snakes. Or fear of water. I knew of a girl who would not go swimming in a swimming pool because she believed sharks were in the water. Social phobias would be a fear of giving a speech, talking to the boss or meeting new people.
It is estimated that over five percent of the population has one or more clinically diagnosed phobias. A phobia usually begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. Some phobias, if left untreated, can debilitate a person. For example, someone with agoraphobia, a fear of the outside world, is unable to leave their house. It is important to deal with a phobia head on in order to rid yourself of your fear. Hypnosis is a proven method to cure phobias.
Hypnosis is a process that introduces positive suggestions into the subconscious mind of an individual. A deep state of relation is induced in which the subconscious mind is the most receptive to new perspectives and ideas. As the positive perspectives and ideas are introduced the client, undergoing hypnosis, will receive motivational encouragement, confidence building statements and a direct plan for curing a phobia.
The new ideas that are introduced into the subconscious mind cause a person to form healthier beliefs, values, and habitual thinking patterns. You no longer have to live with your phobia. You can regain the control back by using hypnosis to cure your fears and phobias.
When you undergo hypnosis, you will experience other additional health benefits. My clients have found that hypnosis calms the nerves, the mind, and the entire body. Hypnosis releases stress and alleviates anxiety. The positive ideas and perspectives that an individual receives build self-esteem and boost confidence. Hypnosis has a positive effect on every aspect of a person’s life. This is a safe, gentle and positive process that can be used by both teenagers and adults.
Stop living in fear.
