Hypnotherapy cures a Fear of Thunder and Lightning

Cynthia overcomes her Fear of Thunder Storms using Hypnotherapy

Cynthia (name changed for confidentiality) had been frightened of thunder and lightning all of her life. As she approached retirement she decided that it was time to do something about it.

Cynthia was frightened of all flashing and banging things but the thing that most frightened her was the flashing of light through glass. In a storm she could never go near a window.

Every morning she felt compelled to watch the weather forecast on the television in an attempt to assure herself that it was safe to go out but still, if the sky was at all overcast, she would become extremely anxious. Cynthia would travel to work on public transport but if she feared any likelihood of rain she would take a taxi – the local taxi firms knew her well!

Cynthia Learns to Understand Her Fear of Thunder Storms

Cynthia discovered that the roots of her fear was not strictly speaking in thunder and lightning at all but was inherited from her father whose fears had a completely different origin. Cynthia’s father had suffered severe wounds during heroic exploits in North Africa during the Second World War. The effects of such experiences were not fully understood at that time and his valour came at a huge price. His experiences left him with mental problems and terrible fears - something that would now be diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. Thunder and lightning would make him relive the fear he had experienced under bombardment and he would cower in terror in the corner of the room. Cynthia was a little girl who loved her father and wanted to spend time with him. Understandably, she learned intense fear of thunder storms.

What was so interesting about Cynthia was that under hypnotic regression Cynthia described her father's experiences as if they were her own - as if she herself had experienced them. One can only wonder at how her father’s experience had transferred itself so accurately into such a small child: had he described them or had her imitation of his behaviour perfectly duplicated her father’s mental pathways in her mind.

Cynthia Loses Her Phobia of Thunder Storms

As a result of our sessions Cynthia lost much of her fear. She was able to stop her obsessive watching of the weather forecast and was able to do things that, for her, had been impossible - she was able to experience a storm without having to hide in the corner of the room and – just to illustrate how disabling a phobia can become – even took a bath when it was raining!
