For those suffering with a phobia the fear can appear very real.
You may be doing everything you can to avoid the situation, you don’t want to go into the garage for fear of spiders, can’t take your children to a party if there are clowns present. You may feel that avoidance is the best strategy, and let’s face it out of sight out of mind feels much better than in sight!
But let me ask you this, have you ever watched a really scary movie? One where you jumped or even screamed while watching? Perhaps you felt uneasy going to bed that night? Now if I asked you to watch it again the following day and then every day for 7 days do you think you would be as affected by it by day 7? I’m guessing not! Fears can become diluted when they are faced and the power is taken from them.
Phobias can become life changing because of the control we give them and avoidance is not always the best answer. It is important that you become comfortable with the feelings of panic and anxiety as they will not kill you they are merely warning signs, a willingness to stay with some slight discomfort may be necessary for real change to happen. With the right stimulus these feelings can be reduced allowing you to deal with the situations in a much more controlled manner.
Hypnotherapy and NLP can really help with these issues as we can work on facing your phobia without you actually having to experience it in the flesh. You will be in a safe controlled environment where you will never be forced to do anything you don’t want to.
