Hypnotherapy In Sheffield Could Help Remove Your Phobia

This Ted Talk on phobias is only short but really interesting and well worth a watch

Many people think of their phobia as being ‘silly/strange/weird’ but if it is getting in the way of you living your life how you would like then it is far from silly.

Hypnotherapy in Sheffield with Focused Hypnosis could be just what you need to end your phobia and start living your life on your terms once again. Phobias aren’t limited to spiders and mice though. Social phobia is a very common one which many people are unaware of.

Generally speaking phobias are:

  • Effectively addressed through hypnotherapy
  • Quickly treated
  • Reduced or removed in the majority of cases

Thirteen of the most common fears and phobias in the UK

A study of 2000 people done by the polling company Yougov found the thirteen most common fears and phobias. People were asked to rate possible phobias from ‘not at all’ to ‘very afraid’. The results are from people who responded that they were very afraid or a little afraid. Some of the fears and phobias are very common, some are a little surprising.

    1. Fear of heights – 58%
    2. Public speaking phobia – 56%
    3. Snakes phobia – 52%
    4. Claustrophobia – 43%

Are You In Sheffield And Need Hypnotherapy For Your Phobia?

Many people have a phobia, phobias aren’t unusual in any way so don’t feel bad if you have one.

Many people I have treated at the Focused Hypnosis Sheffield hypnotherapy practice had a phobia which had taken over their life to some extent. Through hypnotherapy I helped them to move past it and to enjoy their life once again. Hypnotherapy is a fantastic way of addressing a phobia.

  • It is estimated that 1 in 6 people in Sheffield have a phobia but as a lot of people keep their phobias secret this figure could be much higher
  • Phobias may be about unusual things but they can generate very real fears and worries
  • Just because you have had a phobia for a long time doesn’t mean it can’t go in a very short amount of time

Specific Phobia Pages:

if you have a dentist phobia hypnotherapy could help

If you have a dental phobia you probably have quite a few uncontrolled thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help you to regain control and to see a dentist without feeling like you used to.

if you have a phobia of public speaking then hypnosis could help

A public speaking phobia is the most common fear in the UK. Hypnotherapy can be a great way to change how you feel about speaking in public. It is completely natural and can be very effective.

Most Phobias Develop In One Of Three Ways

  • You inherit your phobia

    This is usually from a parent. We instinctively copy our parents and this is usually a good idea. Unfortunately if you parent has a phobia of clowns then there is a chance that you will too.

  • Association

    You have a negative experience and you then associate that negative experience with an object that is nearby and develop a phobia of that object. This is even possible if the object had nothing to do with the negative experience.

  • It just does!

    Sometimes people have a phobia and absolutely no idea at all as to how it developed.

Many people I work with worry that I will expose them to their phobia. I do not believe that this is possible. A recent study has found that a combination of medication and a short exposure to a phobia has lead to improvements in some people’s condition.

It is possible to change phobias without pills and scaring yourself.

How Does Hypnotherapy Combat Phobias?

if you have a phobia then hypnotherapy could be the way to change your thoughts

Hypnotherapy could help you get a different perspective on your phobia. That part of you that knows that your fear is silly or irrational can be made louder and bigger.

The part of you that has developed the fear can also be reduced and put aside so you can feel better and happier. It really doesn’t matter where you got your phobia from or why. Through hypnotherapy you will be able to focus on how you want to feel in the future.

Many people in Sheffield have found that hypnotherapy can help you get over your phobia, as my many reviews prove.

Rational thinking doesn’t usually help

if you have a spider phobia then hypnotherapy could help you beat it

I regularly treat people at my Sheffield hypnotherapy practice for phobias and have had some amazing results. You may know that it is irrational to be so afraid of spiders/clowns/balloons or whatever your phobia is but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with.

In fact, it can sometimes make it worse when you know on one level that a tiny little English spider could never hurt you and yet you are afraid of it. You can rest assured that I will take your phobia very seriously, even if you think it’s silly or embarrassing.
