Hypnosis in the treatment of Strange Phobias

Hypnosis in the treatment of Strange Phobias

You are a young child out shopping with your mother. You wander off in the shopping centre and suddenly realise your mother is no longer there. This is a circumstance with which we can probably all identify. You experience fear – but of what? Most likely it is a fear of being lost but that fear could be assigned to anything. A kind lady with white or pale blond hair may try to help. The child may assign the fear to her white hair and a strange phobia of people with white hair, or old people, is established.

How Does One Get a Fear of the Telecom Tower?

The client who came to me with a strange phobia of the Telecom Tower developed it following admission to a London hospital as a young child. Her parents were excluded and she believed she had been abandoned. As a young child she did not understand these feelings so she assigned the fear to the one thing that dominated her environment – a magnificent view of the Telecom Tower. As an adult she found it strange that the Telecom Tower created terrible fear but its real cause was hidden. Interestingly, if any member of her family were present the fear was greater and extended to any tall building.

There Can Sometimes be a Benefit to Escalating Fear  

When someone already has a phobia it can make them more likely to develop another. Rather than it being a process of sensitisation it is more usual that the original fear is not sufficiently effective for its designated purpose. I call this process “Phobia creep” and it can be one thing responsible for the development of strange phobias.

The phobia that develops is not always an uncommon or strange phobia and quite frequently one finds the source of a phobia to be something other than the obvious. I have helped people with fear of flying, one who had developed it from a fear of success and another a fear of being alone. I also had a client who had “inherited” a fear of thunder and lightning from her war hero father who had suffered “shell shock” (now called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from bombardment during the Second World War.

It is possible to develop a phobia to anything – something strange or otherwise. There is generally a logical explanation that explains how any phobia has been created.

Hypnotherapy to Cure Phobias

You may never know where you fear came from but discovering that is only something that may be revealed as part of the process of treatment. Hypnotherapy and NLP can be used to cure phobias however strange they may appear. With the correct treatment you can cure even strange fears and phobias. Hypnotherapy and NLP can be extremely effective as a cure for phobias.
