Fears and Phobias
Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming
for Fears and Phobias Milton Keynes.
The basic feature of fears and phobias is a conflict between conscious and subconscious processes. Since cognitive hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) are the most direct way into the subconscious, it stands to reason that they can become the instrument of alleviating the irrational fears and phobias. At Set Your Mind Free Hypnotherapy we help you to come to an internal understanding and acceptance of how the fears and phobias may once have served a useful purpose, but now have become an unnecessary behaviour pattern.
Using Hypnotherapy to discover the root of your Fears and Phobias.
The objective of cognitive hypnotherapy is to discover the cause(s) of your fears and phobias, communicate with these subconscious processes and desensitize you from the fears and phobias; so that you react to them in a calmer fashion, when encountering them in the future. Attempting to deal with fears and phobias at a conscious level is often totally ineffective because fears and phobias happen automatically below the level of conscious awareness. In fact many you are probably already aware of the cause, or trigger of your fears and phobias, and no matter how much you may attempt to consciously control and rationalise your fears and phobias, you still experience the fears and phobias.
Fears and Phobias are a Natural Response to Danger
Fears and phobias are a natural response caused by real danger. For example, we are all scared of coming face to face with a wild, hungry animal, and fear is a survival instinct which warns us against certain things or situations. A phobia, on the other hand, is an irrational fear of an object or situation that causes little or no danger. For example, arithmophobia (fear of numbers) may cause certain individuals anxiety, but the fear itself won’t cause any danger. Phobias are linked to our subconscious, and because they are irrational, they can often be dealt with effectively.
Fears and Phobias are extremely common and range from the less well-known i.e. asymmetriphobia (fear of asymmetrical things) to the more commonly recognised dentophobia (fear of dentists). There will usually be strong avoidance behaviour connected with the fears and phobias, and feelings of anxiety, loss of control and panic. Sufferers usually know their fears and phobias are irrational, but they cannot control them.
A combination of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming may help you to overcome your fears and phobias leading you to feel in control once more.
