Do you want to be able to go on holiday without feeling fearful about the flight? Perhaps your fear relates to spiders, snakes or other animals. Or do you avoid medical procedures due to a fear of needles or you're too scared to visit the dentist. Whatever your phobia, hypnotherapy can help you.

We are sometimes ridiculed for our phobias, but fear is a natural human emotion; nobody would ridicule you for being fearful if a man-eating tiger were running towards you or if you had to walk on a tightrope over the Grand Canyon.


A phobia is an irrational fear of an object or situation and no amount of reasoning changes your reaction to the situation or object of your phobia.

Common phobias include:

  • Arachnophobia – Fear of spiders

  • Ophidiophobia – Fear of snakes

  • Acrophobia – Fear of heights

  • Agoraphobia – Fear of open or crowded spaces

  • Cynophobia - Fear of dogs

  • Aerophobia – Fear of flying

  • Glossophobia - Fear of public speaking


Take a look here to understand the biology of a phobia.

If you would like to undertake some hypnotherapy to help you to make the changes that you want to make, so that you can live the life that you want to live, please contact me.
