Almost everyone has an irrational fear or two. Some people get nervous at the thought of flying on holiday. Others scream at the sight of a spider or perhaps you feel wobbly looking down from a tall building. For most people, these don’t interfere with their everyday lives, but for some, these fears are so severe they cause a great deal of anxiety and they do interfere with normal everyday life.
A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. The majority of phobias develop during childhood but they can also develop in adults. There are numerous phobias, however, a few common phobias include:
For some people the phobia is so severe they will go to great lengths to avoid situations where they might encounter their phobia. For example, you might make excuses not to book a foreign holiday so you don’t have to fly on an aeroplane.
If you have a phobia, you probably realise that your fear is unreasonable, however, you still feel anxious and are unable to control your feelings. With the right treatment you can learn to control your feelings and overcome your fears and phobias. Hypnotherapy, NLP techniques and EFT can all be used to help you overcome something that, in the past, has interfered with your life and caused unnecessary anxiety.
