Many people experience phobias, its is an overwhelming, debilitating feeling. However having a phobias is a stronger, more pronounced feeling and can being on an unrealistic sense of danger that are set off by some external influence.
Phobias are a type of anxiety and you may not experiences that anxiety until you come into contact with the trigger or source of anxiety. However in some cases evening thinking about a situation, animal or object can be all the trigger a person many need.
Fears and phobias do not have a single cause but have a number of associated factors. The are association with a particular incident or trauma, a learnt response that a person develops early in life from a family member and sometimes a peer.
Phobias are the most common type of anxiety and there are many types of phobias for example:
• acrophobia, fear of heights.
• aerophobia, fear of flying.
• arachnophobia, fear of spiders.
• astraphobia, fear of thunder and lightning.
• autophobia, fear of being alone.
• claustrophobia, fear of confined or crowded spaces.
• hemophobia, fear of blood.
• hydrophobia, fear of water.
Phobias are driven by emotions and a long term solution is to change the way you think and by managing your thinking (cognition), this way you learn to manage the emotions and begin to take back the control.
To achieve results a mixture of therapies may be used, such as NLP, hypnotherapy and coaching.
