Fears and Phobias




Fears and Phobias - Hypnotherapy Durham, Newcastle, Sunderland

Many people experience specific phobias, intense, irrational fears of certain things or situations – dogs, closed-in places, heights, escalators, tunnels, dying, driving, water, flying, and injuries involving blood are a few of the more common ones.


Phobias aren’t just extreme fears; they are irrational fears. You may be able to ski the world’s tallest mountains with ease but panic going above the 10th floor of an office building. Adults with phobias realize their fears are irrational, but often facing, or even thinking about facing, the feared object or situation brings on a panic attack or severe anxiety.

Specific phobias strike more than 1 in 10 people. They seem to run in families and are a little more prevalent in women. Phobias usually first appear in adolescence or adulthood. They start suddenly and tend to be more persistent than childhood phobias; only about 20 percent of adult phobias vanish on their own.


When children have specific phobias – for example, a fear of animals–those fears usually disappear over time, though they may continue into adulthood. No one knows why they hang on in some people and disappear in others.

How to Overcome Your Fear of Phobias with Hypnosis


Firstly, we are only born with two Fears/Phobias - The Fear of Loud Noises, and The Fear of Falling, all of the others are self created/learned, these can't be inherited from a previous generation, although they can be learned. 


All you need to do is encounter something of a negative nature, maybe you heard it, saw it, thought of it(yes thought of it), or even felt it!!


Your mind can increase the intensity, magnify or amplify it, really blow the whole incident out of proportion, at this point in now becomes a fear/phobia/anxiety.


The good news is this can be overcome, many like the word 'cured'  and using Hypnosis this can be achieved very quickly usually with just ONE Session.

Mandi (Bees / Wasps)​ Had a session for a crippling phobia of bees and wasps I’ve had for 20 years today, and I can’t recommend enough. If you’re considering hypnotherapy for anything, go for it! I felt at ease straight away and throughout the whole session. David showed confidence in overcoming my fear, rather than seeing it as treating a problem. Thank you!


Ailsa (Various)​ Best decision I've ever made. ( unbelievable )


Liza ( (9 Year old Son Bees / Wasps) After his first session, Ben was happy eating outdoors with us on a sunny day which prior to this was unimaginable.

​After his second session, Ben was happily pointing out wasps and calmly asking us to remove them from the house. He was sleeping with his windows open in his room and he was contentedly enjoying the heat wave! It was a miracle.
