Anemophobia / Ancraophobia: Fear of the Wind - Fear of Drafts

What is Anemophobia?

Fear of the wind or of drafts is known as anemophobia, though it is also sometimes called ancraophobia.

Regardless of the name that we use, this little-recognized fear can be truly incapacitating for those who suffer from it.

Often anemophobia becomes worse as time goes by and, if left untreated, it can significantly impact on the person's quality of life. Indeed, it can severely restrict so many of the normal activities that most people simply take for granted.

Not only can this phobia produce fear of the outdoors and of open windows, where wind and drafts might usually be expected to occur, but it can also produce really intense feelings of anxiety in apparently unrelated situations such as when passing a functioning hand dryer in a public toilet or when seated in an airplane or coach with the overhead air vents blowing.

Symptoms of Wind Fear

Though each person experiencing a fear of the wind, or anemophobia, does so in their own way, generally speaking the symptoms of this phobia are similar to those of other anxiety disorders.

These symptoms may include increased or irregular heartbeat, rapid breathing and shortness of breath, sweating or chills, dry mouth, queasy, nauseous sensations and almost overwhelming feelings of dread.

In people with severe anemophobia, anxiety can so easily turn into panic, thereby producing what is commonly referred to as a 'full blown panic attack'.

Causes of Anemophobia: Finding the Origin of Fear of the Wind

No one was born with this fear. In order for it to be activated it has first to be acquired.

Anemophobia is almost always caused by a negative experience in the individual's past, which may or may not be recalled by the conscious mind, but which has been 'imprinted' on the subconscious mind.

Most often, the anemophobic person has found themselves in a specific situation where the wind or a draft has been blowing and in which they felt intensely afraid. This specific experience has then become twinned or linked with all wind or gusts of air in what is known as a 'generalized conditioned response'.

Usually, the person experiencing this anxiety disorder knows only too well that it is illogical and irrational, but that does precious little to help. The medical response is often to prescribe anti-anxiety medication or, less frequently, to recommend a course of cognitive behavioural therapy in an attempt to control the symptoms. This however, is a little like asking someone to live their life with an elephant in the living room. How much better to simply remove the elephant!

Because this fear emanates from the subconscious mind, it is there that we must look for its solution.

And this is where advanced transformational hypnotherapy can be of such tremendous help.
