Some phobias are so acute that it will keep the person from seeking help from a doctor or the dentist. Agoraphobia could well be the reason why you cannot venture out of the house to seek medical help from your doctor. Odontophobia (fear of the dentist) may well stop you visiting the dentist for treatment you may well urgently require for your teeth!
There are thousands of other phobic reactions, like fear of the dentist, needles, blood, heights, birds, darkness, hospitals, snakes, stairs, dogs, cats, bee’s wasps, and even people; the above are just a brief example. For a full list of phobias please click here.
Hypnotherapy has changed my life not only with the fear of flying, but with several other fears I had before such as fear of enclosed spaces and a fear of rats and now both fears don’t even exist anymore. I am now happy, confident and much more relaxed than I used to be.
