Hypnotherapy as the New Alternative For Eliminating Phobias

Hypnosis is a state of the subconscious in which individual leaves behind their peripheral boundaries and conscious thoughts to submerge in their senses.

What Are Phobias?

Fears are naturally present and differ for every human being, however, the extreme and irrational forms of fears are known as ‘phobias’. These phobias are also thoughts that exist in the subconscious element of the mind. Phobias can cause hindrances in a person’s day to day life.

Since phobias and hypnosis are both interlinked to the subconscious, hypnosis can help regulate a person’s phobias.

Phobias are caused due to several different reasons. The most common reasons are a particular trauma or event related to those elements such as a phobia of airplanes due to plane crashes, observed response to that element such as watching someone scream when they encounter an injection needle and in some cases even genetic mental disorders that are present since birth and may continue to evolve.

Phobias are further divided into simple and complex phobias.

  • Simple Phobias are those which tend to focus on general objects, animals, activities, etc. Examples of these are animal phobias, bodily fluid phobias, environmental phobias and many more.
  • Complex Phobias are those which involve surroundings and activities hence making them more of a disturbance to a person’s daily routine. Complex phobia revolves mostly around social situations which can lead to anxiety and in more severe cases anxiety or panic attacks as well.

What Happens to Your Phobia During Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is a phenomenon that allows a person to eliminate their irrational phobias through hypnosis. Hypnotherapy focuses on getting to the root of the cause of the phobia and getting rid of the voluntary reaction on the encounter of your phobia due to your mind’s subconscious.

The first and foremost step is to encounter the phobia. This means the hypnotherapist puts the person under a relaxed state of mind which allows the hypnotherapist to access the individual’s subconscious. This is done mainly to find the center cause of the phobia which in many cases is a repressed trauma or incident due to the mind’s capability of repressing traumatic experiences.

Then the process of hypnotic regression is initiated where the hypnotherapist then gradually unlocks the subconscious and makes the individual re-experience the event once again to reason with rational referring to the phobia, without the overwhelming looming phobia. And once this experience is successfully finished, the person is rid of their phobia.
