There are two types of phobias. A simple phobia, where a person reacts negatively when they come into contact with the thing that causes fear, i.e. dentists, needles or spiders, and a complex phobia which causes fear and anxiety continually (emetophobia, the fear of vomiting, usually falls into this category).
A phobia is defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding despite the fear, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational. The good news is that your brain has an ability to learn. Learning new habits such as being more relaxed and calm can help overcome simple phobias very quickly. And as habits exist on the same subconscious level as phobias and hypnosis can help create new habits, you can soon learn new patterns of behaviour around things that previously caused you fear.
As with all hypnotherapy, the client has to want to change their pattern of behaviour and will need to get on board with the treatment i.e. listening to a mind-strengthening CD. But with just a few sessions, you can be cured of your phobias.
