What is a phobia?
Phobia Treatment Hypnosis Drogheda
A Phobia is: “an outward expression of an internal anxiety.” What does that mean? Simply put, “something within you, but outside your own control”. Phobia’s are one of the five major types of anxiety disorder. It is a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little or no actual danger at all.

People with phobias will really try to avoid what they are afraid of because if they can’t, they may experience panic and fear, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, trembling, and a strong desire to get away.
Now that we know what a phobia is, perhaps we should take a closer look at the cause. Remember every symptom (your problem or phobia) must have a cause! The universe works on the doctrine of Cause and Effect. And you my friend are no different. Just for a moment think back on your childhood, and think about one time when you felt uneasy about a situation or incident that created intense negative emotions, within you.
What ever you thought about, your ‘psyche’ has the ability to repress/hide/disavow the emotions associated with that incident. Once those emotions have been bottled up, your psyche will sometimes create a phobia – to warn you not to get into that (or any similar) situation again, it also serves another purpose as we can see from these two examples. Which we now see as that bottled-up emotion from yesteryear.
Drogheda Hypnotherapy the best in phobia treatment?
Suggestion Therapy: has a success rate of approximately zero! So please bear that in mind when requesting help with a phobia, from other sources. Why does it fail so dismally, keep reading.
Hypnoanalysis: We now know that your particular phobia is caused by a trapped emotion (from long ago) that is now being expressed by your “psyche” to draw attention to this unconscious conflict, if I were stupid enough to apply suggestion to your particular phobia, and remember here that your phobia is not what is wrong with you, it is only your presenting symptom (the reason you called me initially), it is very possible that your phobia would disappear but only on a temporary basis. In the meantime that trapped emotion will seek another path to get your attention, this time it will hit you where it hurts most, mountain climbers get vertigo; opera singers, laryngitis, mathematicians headaches, and so on! But this time you will have two phobias, not one!
With this type of therapy, e go in search of the actual cause of the phobia. Note I said WE, not you, not me,
this is very much a journey into your past and I am just a guide, to help you get to the root cause of the problem. Now once we discover the hidden emotion, (usually from your formative years) your particular symptom will vanish so completely that you will wonder, did I ever have that problem in the first place? Also, it will never return it can’t because you have released that pent-up emotion, and there is absolutely no way it is going back, it can’t.
I have found it quite reassuring for people to know that their particular phobia has got a name. At least someone else must have suffered as you are. And at some stage in their life used hypnotherapy for the removal of the phobia.
The purpose of a symptom is to draw attention to the part of the psyche that has been neglected”
Symptoms, as we know, are a substitute for something that is held back by repression.
