It is normal to have some fears in life. For example, fear of pain is natural. Fear of being in a serious accident is rational. But when a natural fear becomes a phobia, it can take over. It can cause real distress, and affect the way you live every day.
Most people would not choose to have a painful injection. But if you really have a needle phobia then you might even avoid essential treatment or tests. Some women even avoid getting pregnant.
The phobias listed here are severe, irrational fears and phobias which stop you from living normally. They preoccupy you, and cause you (and your family and friends) inconvenience, distress and upset.
What is a phobia?
Every phobia is really just a particular type of anxiety.
A phobia means feeling very strong panic about something. The body responds to this fear by giving you a shot of adrenalin. The symptoms are very similar to panic attacks.
You may well go to great lengths to avoid the thing you have a phobia of. This can really get in the way of living life. The phobia specialists at Manchester Hypnotherapy can help get rid of your phobia for good.
