The definition of a phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that lead to a compelling desire to avoid it.
From time to time we all feel anxious about something. It could be fear of heights, first day at a new job, the dentist, or speaking to a group in public. Some of that anxiety helps us to keep focused and learn how to confront our fears. However, when this anxiety interferes with work, keeps us awake at night, or avoiding certain situations and not enjoying life, we are dealing with something else entirely.
Phobic symptoms can be debilitating and sometimes occur merely by thinking about it. These include:
- Dizziness, trembling and increased heart rate
- A sense of unreality
- Fear of dying
- Preoccupation with the fear object
No one should have to endure the anxiety and possible terror that these fears and phobias cause.
Association is a key characteristic of phobias and is the element that needs to be broken in order to cure a phobia. Hypnosis along with Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a perfect way to reprogram the subconscious and overcome fears and phobias, gaining confidence and healthy behavioral patterns.
