A phobia is an irrational fear, a kind of anxiety disorder in which the individual has a relentless dread of a situation, creature, place, or thing. Some people who have phobias go to great lengths to avoid a perceived danger which is much greater in their minds than in real life. This can have a very negative impact on their lives, stopping them from doing things they may otherwise enjoy.
Hypnotherapy is an effective method to permanently treat phobias by reprogramming the brain's fight or flight response to inappropriate cues and triggers, and introducing positive responses to situations which, up to now, have induced fear or panic.
Most people experience a lasting benefit after three sessions of hypnotherapy.
