Fears and PhobiasHypnotherapy Treatment & Help

Phobias are a very common form of anxiety disorder, varying in severity from person to person.

Most people who suffer from a phobia are only too well aware that their fear is irrational, but are powerless to override their initial panic reaction. Others do their best to avoid the object of their fear and suffer only relatively mild anxiety, adopting an avoidance strategy.

However, many people who suffer from a chronic fear or phobia experience acute anxiety or full-fledged panic attacks with all the associated disabling symptoms.

Difference Between Fears & Phobias?

Let's start with a brief explanation of the difference between a fear and a phobia.

fear phobia
Fear exists for a reason and can be a very useful survival mechanism. After all, it's fear that lets you know that you need to take care of yourself and the people in your life when danger is present. It's like a voice saying: 'You need to take action', and as such, it is rational.

Phobias, on the other hand, are very different. They are irrational in nature, being out of all proportion to the situation or object which elicits the fear. They can occur when no real danger is present. People can be phobic towards almost anything, from animals to airplanes, spiders to stickers, velvet to vacuum clearers. Like chronic pain, phobias serve no really useful purpose.
