Phobias & Fears

Specific or simple phobias centre around an object, animal, situation or activity whereas Complex phobias tend to be more disabling than simple phobias. They tend to develop during adulthood and are often associated with a deep-rooted fear or anxiety about a situation or circumstance.


Common examples of simple phobias include:

  • animal phobias – such as dogs, spiders, snakes or rodents


  • environmental phobias – such as heights, deep water and germs


  • situational phobias – such as visiting the dentist or flying


  • bodily phobias – such as blood, vomit or having injections


Hypnotherapy can work on any phobia, breaking the connection between the object or situation, and the debilitating emotions associated with it. You may be surprised to find how quickly hypnotherapy can bring about change. Many people find just a few sessions are all they need.
