Fears & Phobias Hypnotherapy in Reading & Berkshire 

What is a "fear" or "phobia" 
 
A "fear" is (noun) "An unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm" or (verb) "Be afraid of (someone or something) as likely to be dangerous, painful, or harmful." 
 
A "phobia" is (noun) "An extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something." 
 
No one is born with a fear, they are learnt from either a bad experience, for example, being bitten by a snake may give someone a future aversion to snakes and become flooded with anxiety when confronted by one. On the other hand, as a child you may have seen a parent react badly to seeing a spider and so your brain decides this must be a bad thing and creates an anxious response whenever you see a spider. 
 
 
Don't let your life be ruled by fear, discover how you can be relaxed and have control over yourself in situations that you find distressing. 
 
Here is a list of some of the most common phobias 
 
Fear of flying - Aerophobia, Aviophobia, Aviatophobia 
Fear of spiders - Arachnophobia 
Fear of clowns - Coulrophobia 
Fear of heights - Acrophobia 
Fear of sharp or pointed objects (such as a needle or knife) - Aichmophobia 
Fear of having no escape and being closed in - Claustrophobia 
Fear of the dentist or dental procedures - Dentophobia, odontophobia 
Fear of vomiting - Emetophobia 
Fear of public speaking or trying to speak - Glossophobia 
Fear of dying - Thanatophobia 
Life can be difficult when we are held back by our fears, I can tell you from first hand experience that it is the most uplifting and gratifying experience to finally be in control.
