What scares you? Are you afraid of being alone, or are you afraid of crowds? Do you fear spiders, or are you afraid of heights? Does the thought of giving a speech make your blood run cold? Fear is one way our brain protects us. We avoid the feared object or situation, whether that is a barking dog or a careening car, which keeps us safe. Unfortunately, when fear spirals out of control, it can inhibit us, narrowing the perimeters of our lives and shrinking our world. It is time to take back your life with the power of hypnotherapy for fear and phobias.
The Problem with Fear
While our modern world is comparatively safer than the world our ancestors inhabited, we do not always recognize it as such. Each time we face a threat or potential threat, our bodies react just like our ancestors’ bodies reacted. The endocrine system sends a flood of hormones coursing throughout us to slow down non-essential body systems and increase essential ones. This gives us what we need to stay safe in the short term, but persistent stress can take a toll over time.
Chronic stress is associated with a variety of serious issues, including irritable bowel syndrome, cardiovascular problems, a weakened immune response, endocrine dysfunction, accelerated aging, and atrophy in certain parts of the brain. When you are fearful, you might also not be making choices that are in your best interests. With hypnosis for phobias, you can take back your power and your confidence.
The Deep Roots of Fear
Some fears have rational origins. For example, poor swimmers might feel uncomfortable or fearful of deep water. Other fears, such as a fear of the dentist, might have more obscure roots, and worse, they cause problems in your life. If you have a dental phobia, it may leave you feeling too shaky, anxious, queasy, or fearful to visit the dentist for necessary care for good dental health.
Complex phobias can be even more limiting. Social anxieties fall into this category. People with social anxieties feel uncomfortable or anxious in social situations or shy or awkward in groups. If you suffer from social anxiety or a phobia, you might have a difficult time engaging with friends, interacting in social situations, or even shopping or going to work.
You may be able to trace your phobia to a specific incident or trauma, but for some, fear can be a learned response or associated with long-term stress or genetics. Regardless of the cause or origins of your fear and anxiety, hypnotherapy for phobias can help you manage and even overcome them.
