The good news is, it isn’t beyond our control but the bad news is it may take some convincing before help is sought.
Even though phobias are so disruptive to our lives and take away our freedom to live a normal life, we would do anything to avoid confronting them. We would rather adapt our behaviour to work around it i.e. wake hours earlier and take B roads to a destination instead of waking at a sensible time and taking the dreaded motorway.
Fortunately for a problem which is rooted in the mind, the fear that has been programmed into us to the point of exaggeration can be re-programmed, by way of hypnotherapy.
But first we must understand what is going on inside the phobic mind.
