It is a huge relief to realize that hypnosis has been a common practice to vanish fears and phobias. Did you know that 40 million people in US alone suffer from fear-related disorders? This accumulates over 40 billion dollars in mental health costs. Happily, fears are highly treatable and hypnosis is a powerful tool that does it.
Fortunately, hypnosis provides just what the brain and mind need to learn to respond in a calm, safe fashion. Consequently, you will restore your natural healthy responses in a fraction of the time. In reality, hypnosis separates triggers (stimulus object or environment) from emotion of fear and helps the brain accept a new safe, comfortable response. In addition, provides a powerful anti-anxiety environment of relaxation, hence multiplying your learning ability.
Whether you are struggling from a fear of driving, flying, or public speech you find yourself deeply affected by a powerful loss of control in that particular environment. Having to do any task associated with your particular fear may feel disabling and petrifying. At this point, you avoid performing a task or engaging in that activity. Consequently, a person may put his or her life on hold, pass a job promotion, avoid going to public places or stop traveling, etc. Fear may ruin your professional life or stop you from reaching and experiencing happiness. Farther more, fear transfers. If you are a parent, your fearful perception and response may transfer to your children resulting in over protection or adapting a variation of your fear.
Fear-response can escalate over time making a person’s sensitivity for triggers extremely acute. Feeling an initial discomfort when doing a task or going to a place, such as flying on a plane, eventually can extend into a physiological response.
When fear strikes, you may feel an increased heart rate, perspiration, rapid breathing, sickness, etc. Overall, fear initiates physiological fight or flight response. At this point, you are beyond logic, because your body learned how to respond automatically to a set of triggers. In individual cases, the perception of fear grows extreme when even a thought of doing anything related to the fear-trigger initiates the fear-response.
Experiencing uncontrolled fear-responses can interfere saving someone’s life. As in one case where a mother saw her child starting to choke in a bathtub and fainted before she could do anything. This situation would get out of control if the father who was home didn’t get there in time. It’s possible the child would die.
Fear could originate during a scary situation when your senses got overloaded, such as in a car crash. In addition, fear could develop over a period of time trough experiencing triggering events that slowly accumulated. As a result, you may not know what initiated your fear, but continue to react with panic or anxiety attacks.
