Phobia is more than just being a little scared or worried about something.
Phobias are intense, irrational fears that can significantly disrupt normal functioning. Whether it’s fear of flying, heights, spiders, or any other trigger, these anxieties can limit your experiences and hinder your overall well-being. Hypnotherapy provides a unique and effective approach to overcoming phobias by addressing the root causes entrenched in the subconscious mind.

At R.G. Hypnotherapy, we understand the profound impact that phobias can have on your daily life, and we’re here to guide you toward lasting relief through the empowering practice of hypnotherapy.

Let's Talk About Phobia

Find Freedom

Fear is a natural response that humans have to let us know when we are in danger but when you’re in the grip of a phobic reaction it can feel anything but natural because phobias are different from fears and can lead to panic attack, anxiety or larger health concerns.

Phobia comes from a particularly heightened or exaggerated fear surrounding particular situations or things that come from unrealistic thoughts or ideas about the thing of fear. This can happen as a learned response during childhood or as a result of a sensitising event that creates the phobia.

In the midst of an attack can feel like there is no way to break free of the fear and to just live but there is help.

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome heightened responses and calm emotional responses so that you can move past phobia and live head on with courage

Calm Emotional Responses

Phobic reactions are often accompanied by heightened emotional and physical stress responses that we feel like we have no control over.

These stress reactions are created by the hormones secreted in the nervous system in response to stimuli that the mind interprets as a danger and the more that these reactions occur the stronger that they can become making the object of the fear seem even more intense.

Hypnotherapy can help you to gain control and calm your emotional responses so that you no longer react to what causes your phobic reactions.

Hypnotherapy can help you to reduce the symptoms on a deeper inner level, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms, helping you to move forward with the creation that is your life.

Ease Physical Symptoms

One of the scariest parts of an anxiety attack for many is the physical symptoms especially if you’re unaware of what is going on because the physical symptoms of an anxiety attack can often feel like a much more sinister physical health issue. Many poor souls have attended their local emergency department convinced they were having a heart attack.

To compound the matter more when already you’re in a state of worry during an anxiety attack, it’s easy for the mind to think that something is very wrong.

Of course, nothing is happening in the body that isn’t a normal reaction to having an anxiety attack, horrible as it feels.

Hypnotherapy can help to ease the physical symptoms as anxiety reduces and you gain control over your emotional state.

Types of Fears Hypnotherapy Can Help

Pretty much, if you have a phobia, hypnotherapy can help you to over come it.

Some examples of phobias people commonly seek help with;

  • Spiders
  • Snakes
  • Animals
  • Flying
  • Heights
  • Crowds
  • Social phobia
  • needles
  • Enclosed spaces

Positive Experience

Many examples portrayed in the media work with desensitization methods to slowly decrease the fear felt so that the person no longer reacts to the thing they have a phobia of. So, if you’re scared of spiders the way would be to bring spiders close to you while you work to change how you feel.

Hypnotherapy is a far more relaxing way to overcome your fears.

Using methods like visualization and subconscious integration, hypnotherapy is a far more relaxing way to overcome your fears.

In clinic it is common to have clients visualize feeling calm and in control while climbing a ladder or associate spiders with comical situations.

Consider Hypnotherapy

While hypnotherapy isn’t a magic wand or a cure all, studies have shown that not only is it effective treating all manner of issues it does so in many cases much, much faster than traditional talk therapies. Not only that, studies have also shown that when used in as part of your health care team, outcome in all areas of your life can be improved. As an added bonus as if you needed more, hypnotherapy is almost entirely relaxing and enjoyable to participate in.


Long past the traumatic event, associated emotional and physical distress can be activated even by non-threatening triggers. Hypnosis may help to identify these stimuli for resolution.


Hypnotherapy creates a trance state, a condition of intense physical and mental relaxation. While this relaxation alone may offer some relief from trauma symptoms, it also facilitates and enhances relevant additional therapies.


The relaxed, trance state allows reliving the distressing trauma in a safe environment and under the trained therapist’s supervision. More appropriate reactions to identified triggers are then introduced, gradually reducing the stress response’s severity. Your therapist may also provide ongoing ‘homework’, including breathing exercises, meditation and self-hypnosis techniques.
