Orlando Fears and Phobias Hypnotherapy

There are many well-known adages that confirm what we have experienced to be true—that the biggest thing holding us back in our lives is our own fear. Inevitably, while navigating through the different phases of life, at some point we may allow fear to limit our potential. Some have a fear of failure. Others fear embarrassment or change. These anxious feelings are characterized by an underlying hesitancy to approach the uncertain. While many people find ways to manage and overcome their respective limiting anxieties, others have fears that are more deep-seated and debilitating.

Because everyone has different fears that manifest in varying degrees, something one person is afraid of can seem irrational and silly to another person. However, no matter the phobia, fear cannot be more palpable to the person it affects. Avoiding the fear may work to a certain extent, but some phobias—such as heights, spiders, elevators, dentists, doctors, or public speaking—are often inescapable.

Living in anticipation of something bad happening—a mindset caused by fear—is exhausting. Unsurprisingly, fears are housed in the subconscious mind; this is why you may feel that your phobias are out of your control. Much anxiety is caused by an unconscious response to messages received from the imagination. The subconscious imagination creates scenarios that can be unpleasant, frightening, or uncomfortable. As a response, the mind creates a state of readiness for the worst case scenario to occur—anxiety. Negative experiences from the past or childhood trauma have been known to play a part in why this occurs.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy for Fears and Phobias

Because phobias manifest subconsciously, the key to conquering them addressing them at the source. The hypnotherapists at Orlando Hypnosis Clinic focus on building solution-oriented programs that are tailored to your own needs. No matter how long you have struggled with your phobia or how much it has inhibited you from living to your fullest potential, your mind can learn how to relax in the face of your fears.

Our hypnotists start by determining the root of your fear—or the Initial Sensitizing Event (ISE)—that caused it to develop. In most cases, the fear has been dormant in the unconscious mind far before it creeps into the surface of your consciousness. Frequent fears that we have helped people alleviate include:

Acrophobia/ Altophobia (Fear of Heights)
Aviophobia (Fear of flying)
Glossophobia (Fear of public speaking)
Claustrophobia (Fear of small/confined places)
Agoraphobia (Fear of leaving the house/ Fear of places or environments that cause panic)

We can also help if you suffer from the following:

• Nyctophobia/ Lygophobia/ Achlouphobia (Fear of darkness)
• Arachnophobia (Fear of spiders)
• Ophidiophobia (Fear of snakes)
• Agathoraphobia (Fear of rejection)
• Kakorrhaphiophobia (Fear of failure)
• Sociaophobia (Fear of intimacy)
• Fear of crowds, open spaces, or uncomfortable social conditions
• Nosocomephobia (Fear of hospitals)
• Cleithrophobia/ Cleisiophobia (Fear of elevators)
• Cynophobia (Fear of dogs)
• Vehophobia/ Hodophobia (Fear of driving)
• Achievemephobia (Fear of success)
• Autophobia/ Monophobia (Fear of being alone)
• Aichmophobia/ Belonephobia (Fear of needles or pointy objects)
• Gerascophobia (Fear of Aging)
• Panophobia/ Pantophobia (Fear of everything)

Hypnosis programs that address phobias are similar to strategies used to help combat panic disorders, but the bulk of the work will be done in your subconscious—meaning you will learn new mechanisms to gain control of your mind.

Treating Phobias with Hypnosis

Whatever your phobia and regardless of how long you have suffered from it, despite the dreadful life limitations you have endured because of your fear, your phobia can be addressed through hypnosis and hypnotherapy at Orlando Hypnosis Clinic.

Fears come in many shapes and sizes. Some of them may not be too much of a problem, especially if you can avoid the object of your fears. However, some fears like flying in airplanes, taking elevators, animals, spiders, dentists, doctors, or talking in public, can be a major obstacle to having a comfortable life. To the outsider, fears appear illogical and irrational. To the person living with the fear, however, the fear is all too real.

This sort of general anxiety or fear is usually generated by an unconscious response to the ‘misuse’ of the imagination. Basically, the ‘back part’ of the mind is getting the message from the imagination that something bad is going to happen, and so creates a state of readiness in the mind and body: anxiety. This can partly be due to experiences in the past, or a lack of an ability to tolerate uncertainty – not knowing what is going to happen, but whatever the reason, the mind can quickly learn to relax and take things as they come.

Orlando Hypnosis Clinic’s hypnotherapists regularly constructs solution-oriented programs designed to help clients conquer these issues, often in as few as one or two sessions for most people. Whatever your phobia, regardless of how long you have suffered from it, despite the dreadful life limitations you have endured because of your fear, your phobia can be addressed and appropriate programs put in place designed to move you in the right direction of living the life you deserve and feeling the relief you seek.

Like many people, you may have just accepted the fear or phobia. Figuring you are going to suffer with this for life. You may have put off doing things that involve the thing or event in which your fear is based. Be assured that after the custom hypnosis program, most people feel the fear disappear or at least be so greatly reduced that they wonder if it ever was there in the first place.

Our hypnotists strive to help you to find the ISE (Initial Sensitizing Event) causing the fear. Often, the fear has been residing in the unconscious mind for months or years before it reaches conscious awareness. The hypnotist then helps you to resolve the cause and for most people this alleviates the fear itself.
