Hypnosis for Fears “Top 10”
Here’s a countdown of the “top 10” most common fears I’ve helped my clients resolve using Hypnosis techniques. Do YOU have one of the extreme fears on this list?
10. Fear of Needles
While most people are not excited about getting an occasional flu shot, some people have an extreme reaction to needles! This fear seems to be most common with children, and it takes on a special importance when a shot needs to be administered for a medical or dental procedure. By the way, fear of the dentist is also quite common.
9. Fear of Driving
I’ve worked with several people for driving anxiety, ranging from doctors to school teachers. Obviously, it’s very inconvenient to rely on a bus or an Uber to get around.
The NEXT THREE fears on this list involve being fearful around various creatures and critters…
8. Fear of Dogs (even the cute ones!)
Any trip to a park, grocery store, or even a plane flight is likely to result in an encounter with a dog. This is more true than ever due to steady increase in the use of dogs as service animals.
7. Fear of Spiders or Bugs
People with this fear are often very specific, like “just spiders,” or “just cockroaches.” Depending on where you live, this may or may not be problematic. Since I live in Florida, for example, my daily chance of encountering a spider is definitely 100%.
6. Fear of Snakes
While this is a very common fear, many people never bother to get help for it, because it’s easy for people in the city to avoid running into a snake.
5. Fear of Crowds
People with this fear will avoid going to crowded events like a concert, a county fair, or a maybe even a big house party. As a result, they miss out on a lot of good social opportunities.
4. Fear of Flying
Avoiding an airplane is just not an option for some people if they need to travel for business, or keep in touch with their family. One of my fear of flying clients had a husband get a job transfer overseas. If she wanted to ever see him again, she needed to get on plane.
3. Fear of Closed In Spaces
A common example of this is fear of elevators. If you work in a tall commercial building, or if you like to go on cruise ship vacations, taking an elevator is a whole lot easier than going up 16 flights of stairs.
2. Fear of Heights
For some people, a fear of heights means they can’t even bear to look out of the window of a tall building, and forget about enjoying the view from a balcony. I even worked with one man who got very anxious just from standing on a chair or a stepladder.
1. Fear of Public Speaking
This fear is so common, it’s safe to say that most people experience some anxiety when speaking in front of a group. There’s even a joke that people tend to fear public speaking more than they fear death itself!
My Fear of Public Speaking
Back in school, there were times when I was required to do a short presentation in front of the class. Each time this happened, I’d be just under the threshold of a full blown anxiety attack.
The most embarrassing thing for me was my hands would shake violently from nervousness as I held onto my notes for the presentation.
It was frustration from those types of experiences that led me to discover the power of hypnosis. I’ve discovered amazing techniques that have worked for myself and my clients to release extreme fears of ANY kind.
If you haven’t already guessed, hypnosis for fears helped me overcome my public speaking anxiety. In fact, I’m proud to say that I’ve now presented before large audiences audiences in every state of the USA.
“Fight or Flight” Response
In the world of science, the emotion of FEAR is known as the “fight or flight” response. It’s a physiological reaction that occurs in response to perceived danger, both real or imagined.
My fear about public speaking was producing a fight or flight response AS IF I was in real physical danger, even though I wasn’t.
At the logical level, I knew that speaking to a group people was NOT a life threatening situation. However, at an emotional level, I was having feelings of anxiety as if I was in real danger.
I was having an unconscious emotional response that wasn’t helpful, and actually was very upsetting.
You probably have at least one of your own personal fear triggers? The interesting thing is, you probably don’t even know how it got started?
Only Two Natural Fears
There are actually only TWO natural fears that we’re born with:
- Fear of falling, and
- Fear of loud noises.
These are the only two fears that are hardwired into our DNA.
Any other extreme fear you may have developed is a learned pattern of stimulus-response. You were NOT born with it, but your unconscious mind made an association to keep you away from something.
One Trial Learning
Extreme fears and phobias can potentially be created in response to a SINGLE situation that was PERCEIVED to be dangerous. This occurrence is known as “one-trial” learning.
Fear triggers often form at an early age when the mind is young and impressionable.
For example: A two year old child could develop a fear of dogs from a single unfortunate event when a dog viciously snapped at them.
As an adult, they might not even remember that event, but the fear of dogs could remain.
Remember, a child’s mind is very reactive and impressionable. At that young age, a fear of dogs could even come about simply from viewing a vicious dog on a television screen. That’s why you don’t just let your kids watch anything they want on TV, right?
Once an emotional seed is planted, it can grow like a tree within the unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is always looking to protect you, and keep you away from potential harm.
Hypnosis to Overcome Fear
Just because you’ve developed some kind of extreme fear, doesn’t mean you’re stuck with that response for the rest of your life!
Any reactive fear that has been learned, can also be UNLEARNED. With the right techniques, any pattern of stimulus-response can be rewired to something more productive and useful.
Remember when I said that fear triggers can develop from just a single event? The fact that people can do that type of “one-trial” learning is also proof that a person’s brain CAN learn very quickly.
The ability to learn rapidly also makes it easy for you to learn a new way to respond to situations that used to trigger a fear response.
Using Hypnosis for Fears, it’s absolutely possible for you to break that stimulus-response trigger, causing that fear to become a thing of the past.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve had the fear. It also doesn’t matter if you don’t know where it came from, because you probably don’t!
We now know that the human nervous system is designed to make rapid and permanent changes. With the right tools, these changes can be dramatic, and transformations can happen very quickly.
I can’t believe it took only a few hours to change my life completely. For almost 7 years, I had a major anxiety at the thought of flying. The phobia caused so much havoc in my life, especially when planning business or leisurely trips with my husband. I hated the wall that once stood between me and the rest of the world. Fortunately, I was referred to you, and was able to get rid of the barrier. For the first time in my life, I enjoy flying and cannot wait to see the world beyond driving distances. Thank you again for changing my life.
