What is the difference between anxieties and phobias?

Anxiety is the mind’s response to real danger. For instance, fear would be a natural response for most people confronted by a venomous snake. It is a survival instinct which warns you against certain actions or situations. 

A phobia, on the other hand, is the irrational fear of an object or situation which causes no physical harm. Acrophobia (the fear of heights), for instance, may cause certain people to become anxious, but the fear itself won’t cause any danger. 

Hypnosis for anxiety, phobias and panic attacks is the proven way to take back control from the feelings that may be overwhelming you. Don’t live in fear any longer, reach out and make a positive change today.

 

Signs you have a fear or phobia

If you are confronted with the object of your anxiety or phobia, you may experience physical symptoms. These include:

• Headaches

• Nausea

• Sweating

• Trembling

• Flushing

• Heart palpitations

• Difficulty speaking

 

Behaviours phobias and fears cause

Anxieties and phobias are extremely common. They range from the widely known (i.e. dentophobia – the fear of dentists), to the uncommon (i.e. ergophobia – a persistent fear of work). 

Typically, people exhibit strong avoidance behaviour when confronted with the situation or object of their anxiety or phobia. When faced with it, fears and phobias cause feelings of anxiety, panic and a loss of control in sufferers. 

People who have anxieties or phobias know these are largely irrational; however, they cannot control their strong emotional and physical reaction to it. 

 

How can hypnotherapy help you overcome anxieties and phobias?

Healing hypnotherapy sessions can help you identify the root cause(s) of your fears and/or phobias. During hypnotherapy, you can react to the particular object or situation which makes you afraid in a safe environment. 

This allows you to react to your trigger in a calm fashion, which will prepare you for real-world encounters in the future.
