Any phobia may produce a state of panic when the sufferer is confronted with the phobic object or situation. Phobias have a wide variety of physical symptoms including nausea, pounding heartbeat and jelly legs. For this reason, many people with phobias develop avoidance patterns.

A simple phobia can be very debilitating and have a profound impact on day-to-day living.

Phobias usually develop during childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. They are often linked to a frightening event or stressful situation, but it is not always clear why some phobias occur.

Under Hypnosis or through Emotional Freedom Technique we can consider how your phobia was established and how it has developed. We can then ‘reframe’ the original situation allowing you to look at it in an entirely different way.
