what are phobias?

This is when we have an extreme or irrational fear of something. You may experience a deep sense of dread or panic when you encounter the source of the fear. Or the fear could be of a certain place, situation or object. There are many different types of phobia's but the most common ones I tend to see in my practice are fear of flying, heights, birds, spiders and social phobia's.

why treat phobias?

You do not have to just "live with it". If you are having irrational fears which are starting to interfere with your quality of life then its time to take action and get back in control. Apart from the emotional effects it can have on your body, there can be physical effects too including increased heart rate, sweating, trembling/shaking and difficulty breathing.

The good news....

No matter what phobia it is, or how long you have had it, the basis of all phobia's are fear-based anxiety and can be dealt with using some simple techniques. Hypnotherapy has been shown to be very effective in this area and works by detaching the stimulus (situation which triggers the fear) from the emotional response (fear) and then re-setting the brain with a more realistic response that is not exaggerated or skewed in anyway.
