Hypnotherapy For Fears and Phobias in Nottingham
Hypnosis For Fears and Phobias in Nottingham
A phobia is an overwhelming and fear of an object, place, situation, feeling, person or animal. The degree of fear varies and the term phobia is reserved for those at the extreme end of the spectrum. Phobias are more definitive than fears alone, and develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about something in particular. Those with a genetic predisposition to anxiety may be at a high risk for developing phobias, and if a phobia becomes very intense, and onerous, a person may regulate their life around avoiding the thing that’s causing them extreme reaction, and anxiety. This may well restrict, and reduce their day-to-day life, and if the person has a complex phobia such as agoraphobia, leading a normal life may be very difficult indeed. It certainly causes immeasurable distress.

Social Phobia (more info)
Social phobia is also known as “social anxiety disorder” where a person is very anxious about social situations, and being embarrassed in public. It generally develops in childhood or adolescence, particularly following a humiliating experience. A social phobia can end up being so severe that the simplest of social interactions, such as going into a shop, or answering the telephone, can cause panic. Those with social phobia will often go out of their way to avoid public, and interactive situations altogether.
This is a disorder which gives rise to a fear of feeling trapped in places or situations that you can’t escape from, or where help may not be available.
The word itself refers to “fear of wide open spaces.”
People with agoraphobia can fear large crowds, heights, bridges or being trapped outside their home, or `safe place`. They can even avoid social situations altogether and stay inside their homes avoiding these places and situations. Agoraphobia can also develop after having one or more panic attacks.
Agoraphobia can also be hereditary, and can even be triggered by a stressful event.
