Most people have some fear of some things. A little fear in life is normal. If you fear pain, for example, then this is natural. However if a natural fear becomes a phobia, it causes you real distress. It really affects the way you live.

What’s the difference between a phobia and a normal fear?

So, you probably wouldn’t choose to have a painful injection if there’s a way for you to avoid it. Most people would avoid this! But if you have a real needle phobia then you might avoid essential surgery, treatment or tests. This can go on for months or even years. This means you may suffer very badly from easily prevented illness. You might even avoid getting pregnant because of your needle phobia.

The phobias listed here are severe, irrational fears and phobias which stop you from living normally. They preoccupy you, and can cause you inconvenience, distress and upset. This means you think about them at times when you really should be enjoying yourself, or focusing on something important. They can take over.

What is a phobia?

Your phobia is really just a particular type of anxiety. A phobia is an anxiety about a particular thing, situation or activity. You feel very strong panic and fear about something. Even just thinking about the thing you have a phobia of can produce these feelings. Your body responds to this fear by giving you a shot of adrenalin. You may feel as if you’re having a panic attack.

Perhaps you go to great lengths to avoid the thing you’re phobic about. This can really get in the way of a happy life. The phobia specialists at Manchester Hypnotherapy can help get rid of your phobia for good.
