Hypnotherapy for Phobias


A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder triggered by a specific situation or object. In severe cases, it can lead to panic attacks. In some cases, you might feel extreme anxiety just thinking or talking about the situation or object.

A fear becomes a phobia if it exceeds the actual danger, lasts over six months, and significantly impacts your daily life.

Common examples of simple phobias include:

  • Animal phobias, like dogs, spiders, snakes, or rodents.

  • Environmental phobias, such as heights, deep water, and germs.

  • Situational phobias, like visiting the dentist, driving or flying.

  • Bodily phobias, such as blood, vomit, or injections.

  • Agoraphobia, a fear of crowded spaces where escaping might be difficult during a panic attack.

  • Social phobia, fear of speaking in front of people due to a fear of embarrassment and public humiliation.

*As a part of my duty of care, I'm unable to take on clients who have ever had a medical practitioner or mental health professional diagnose them with any of the following, as these are not suitable for hypnotherapy: Epilepsy, Narcolepsy, Bipolar Disorder, Personality Disorder, Psychotic Episodes, Schizophrenia, Major Depressive Disorder, or those who have a history of severe self-harm or suicidal attempts. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please feel free to email me.

Please take a moment to consider:

  • Do you experience overwhelming and panicked emotions?

  • Do you limit yourself from exploring new possibilities?

  • Do you avoid social events, even with close friends and family?

  • Do you feel embarrassed or immature about these fears?

  • Are you worried about having panic attacks and feeling humiliated?

  • Do you feel the need to conceal your worries?

  • Do you continually seek ways to escape stressful situations?

  • Are you overly concerned about how others see you?
