Phobias & Fears

Gastric Hypoband

"I can't tell you the difference that it has made."


A phobia is an overwhelming fear, most commonly of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. 


Many phobias start with an irrational fear, stemming from learned behaviour during childhood or a traumatic experience which becomes reinforced over time. At its most debilitating, a person will organise their life around avoiding the object of their anxiety, compounding the fear and making them feel paralysed.

Hypnotherapy uses a range of tools and methodologies, depending on whether the root cause is known, the client’s perception of the phobia, and how the receptive they are to change.

Many phobias can be resolved in a couple of sessions, allowing you to live your life freely and take back control.


Common phobias include:


  • Acrophobia, fear of heights

  • Aerophobia, fear of flying

  • Agoraphobia, fear of public spaces

  • Aichmophobia, fear of needles

  • Arachnophobia, fear of spiders

  • Astraphobia, fear of thunder and lightning

  • Claustrophobia, fear of confined spaces

  • Crophobia, fear of heights

  • Cynophobia, fear of dogs

  • Dentophobia, fear of dentists

  • Glossophobia, fear of speaking in public

  • Hydrophobia, fear of water

  • Iatrophobia, fear of doctors (white coat syndrome)
