From public speaking, elevators, spiders and birds, to heights, dentists and open spaces, there is nothing we can’t develop anxiety or phobias about.
It’s good to know that you can easily overcome fears and phobias with hypnosis, because such anxieties are extremely common. More than 10% of people will experience a simple phobia at some time in their lives.
But you’re not doomed to be stuck with them forever.
Happily, hypnosis provides an extremely effective cure for these problems as it provides the opposite of anxiety – deep relaxation. At the same time, it teaches the mind a different way of responding to the feared object or situation. Hypnosis for phobias works by detaching the stimulus (trigger object) from the emotional response (fear) and ‘updating’ the brain with a new, more realistic response.
