Phobias are a learnt response and reactions tend to be intense and out of proportion to the situation. This fear becomes programmed in the subconscious mind as a result of a particular event or series of events which first triggered this emotion. While the response may seem irrational the individual finds they just can’t control the fear. If the trigger situation is common or unavoidable, this fear may begin to significantly impact their life.
Hypnotherapy can discover the root cause and help to minimise or diminish the fear altogether.
