Hypnotherapy to cure Arachnophobia – Fear of Spiders
Using hypnosis in the form of hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) can be effective treatment to cure a spider phobia (arachnophobia).
What is Arachnophobia?
Fear of spiders or a spider phobia is extremely common. A dislike of spiders is different to a fear of spiders and if someone has a fear of them it is likely to be an intense fear and that person can be described as having arachnophobia. There does not seem to be any half measure. This phobia is most commonly inherited from someone else. The sufferer has typically seen the fear someone else has for spiders and learns that fear. There is also an argument that we are more prone to a fear of spiders through some evolutionary defence mechanism. Some estimates suggest that up to 50% of women and 10% of men show symptoms of arachnophobia.
What Justification is there for a Fear of Spiders?
Unlike many other countries, the UK only has one poisonous spider and that spider, even if you were lucky enough to find one and be bitten by it, would normally cause only minor irritation (like an insect bite). Spiders may not be the most attractive creatures but they have no interest in humans and do not deserve the reputation that they have as a creature to be feared. Frequently, the most frightening thing that people dislike about spiders is the speed at which they “scuttle” about
How can Hypnotherapy Cure Arachnophobia?
It all comes down to perspective. Many of the silent movie starts lost their jobs with the advent of the “talkies”. Their voices did not match their on-screen characters and so their performances were no longer believable. How fearful would you feel about Arnold Schwarznegger’s Terminator character saying “I’ll be back” if it were delivered with the voice of Joe Pasquale (or squeaky as he is known affectionately in the entertainment world). Someone who has a fear of spiders takes a certain mental perspective of them, a perspective that holds fear and panic but what if you started looking at them differently? What actually happens is the same process that lost the silent movie stars their jobs - you feel differently about spiders. Hypnotherapy and NLP helps you to do just that. Some NLP practitioners will tell you that it is just a question of thinking of spiders wearing big blue shoes but it is a little more involved than that. A certain amount of desensitisation is required but this can be achieved much easier using hypnosis. There is no benefit in making someone frightened if the aim is to remove fear.
Correct treatment using hypnosis can cure arachnophobia. Hypnotherapy and NLP can be extremely effective in the treatment of arachnophobia.
