If you’re struggling with a phobia, I know how you feel. I, too, once suffered from a phobia. I was frustrated no one seemed to understand the fear, the panic and anxiety I felt. I was embarrassed that this ‘thing’ bothered me. I am an intelligent person and I would consciously rationalise that ‘it’ shouldn’t really bother me, but it still did…
My mind and body reacted with real fear. It affected my daily life in many ways and the symptoms could be brought on by just thinking about “it”.
Fear is a natural response to danger, as it’s a survival instinct, but when we have an unrealistic and exaggerated fear surrounding a certain situation or object, it has turned into a phobia or an irrational fear. Do you find yourself going to great lengths to avoid situations? Even the thought of it sends your head into a spin and panic mode.
Phobias exist in the mind. They develop as an exaggerated or unrealistic fear surrounding a certain object or situation. The phobia may have stemmed from a particular trauma or event or it may be a learned response, picked up from someone else. Research also suggests that genetics may be a factor.
The irrational fear or phobia may have come from a particular trauma or event (for example experience a bumpy flight as a child and then it turns into a fear of flying). You might have picked it up from someone else (for example if your father screamed when they saw a spider, you may have subconsciously learnt that this spider is dangerous and will respond in the future).
Katie’s Testimonial - Overcoming Blood Phobia
When Katie experienced any kind of injury involving blood she used to get really light-headed, even fainting and it didn’t matter whether it was real or on TV. The number of times she had to be taken out of the cinema because she’d actually fainted and what’s worse in a real life injury situation she wasn’t any help to anyone because she’d have to go and lie down. Hypnotherapy helped Katie overcome this blood phobia and her problem just faded away until now she can’t really remember that feeling she used to have so it’s made a really big difference to her life and her family.
