Hypnotherapy for Fear

Fear is a normal and even healthy emotion. But when fear starts to take over your life, it can be debilitating. Fear of flying, public speaking, or meeting new people can all limit your ability to live the life you want. If you're struggling to overcome your fears, hypnotherapy may be able to help.

How can fear affect my mental health?

Fear, like anger and anxiety, is a very natural and helpful reaction to life's challenges. The brain uses those familiar symptoms of increased heart rate, sweating, shaking etc. to alert us to potential danger. Without it we could compromise our safety many times each day. Fear becomes a problem for our mental health when that reaction triggers too easily, perhaps as a result of past experience or trauma. When our brain becomes over sensitive to potential danger we can become 'stuck' in our comfort zone, unwilling to take the slightest perceived risk, which in turn can lead to issues such as phobia and panic attacks, or even an uncomfortable feeling of being 'stuck' in life, wanting to make changes but afraid of the consequences. Hypnotherapy can help alleviate anxiety and reduce the fear response, allowing you to be more proactive in making the changes you need.

What are the symptoms of fear?

It's natural to feel many or all of these symptoms as part of everyday life, but if you are experiencing them very frequently for no or the slightest cause, it may be time to seek help:

  • Feeling hot or cold
  • An adrenaline 'rush'
  • Increased heart rate or palpitations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Shaking and trembling
  • Need to go to the toilet
  • Digestive issues
  • Irritability or 'jumpiness'

How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you bring the unpleasant symptoms of the fear response under control. We'll explore your best hopes for a braver future, visualising a life free of that overwhelming urge to stay safe. Careful solution focused questioning will enable you to picture what you will be doing instead, where you will be going, and how you will be reacting to the world around you. We'll then consolidate that desired future in hypnosis, an entirely natural process which can switch off the fear response and focus your subconscious mind on making that fear-free future a happy reality.
