Hypnotherapy fear of spiders. Arachnophobia is the medical name for the fear of spiders. It can affect anyone and is one of the most common phobias in the UK if not in Europe. A survey in England suggests that spider size, colour and leg length were the most important reasons offered for being afraid of spiders. For many people, the threat of sudden and quick movement by a spider is an important part of the fear.
Where did your fear come from?
This phobia is often the result of a stressful encounter with a spider in your childhood, though you may have completely forgotten the original encounter.. The phobia can be a mild, inconvenient feeling, or it can be so intense that it triggers a full-blown panic attack (In Psychology we call this the Fight or Flight response). Anyone who has never experienced a phobic reaction cannot really appreciate what is going on, and will think the sufferer is ‘irrational’.
How did it happen?
The fear takes over because of an distressing incident when you saw a spider, or spiders and for some ‘good reason’ you felt alarm and fear at the same time. This set up a conditioned response: see spiders, feel afraid, panic, this is referred to as Classical conditioning in Psychology. This is an automatic, subconscious reaction – beyond your conscious control. It is not because you are cowardly or weak: it can happen to anyone. The question is: what to do to stop this happening to you? If you do have a spider phobia there are things that you can do to quickly get rid of it for good.
I use hypnotherapy to help you stop the fear of spiders affecting you ever again. I show you how to use specific anti-phobia techniques. These allow you to change your automatic response to a spider in a subconscious manner: you learn how to regain control of your fear.
Hypnotherapy is a direct approach to the problem, makes a powerful tool for generating positive change, quickly and permanently.
How long will it take to stop my fear of spiders?
Because I use tried and trusted methods you will need only one one-hour session, I have never met anyone who needs two sessions.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis, which is an altered state of consciousness. Contrary to myth and popular belief at no time during the session are you in a trance or unaware of your surroundings, instead you are in a very relaxed state of mind.
