Hypnotherapy for spider phobia

Hypnotherapy for spider phobia

It is believed that recent changes in climate conditions have led to a huge increase in the number of False Widow spiders on the South Coast of the UK.  False Widow spiders are a distant relative of the Black Widow Spider found in vast areas of the Globe although they are not native to the UK.  False Widow Spiders have a much less potent venom than the Black Widow and they rarely bite unless they are threatened and their bite generally results in nothing worse than a bee sting.

Fear or phobia of spiders (or Arachnophobia) is a very common problem, indeed most people have some fear to a greater or lesser degree.  At Hypnotherapy Sussex, we can help you if you have a fear of spiders.  Generally this fear or phobia is either learned as a child from an adult with a phobia or maybe from a direct experience either with a spider, an image in the media or similar.  Often the cause of the phobia will be forgotten but will remain in the subconscious mind and be triggered by simply seeing a small, harmless spider or even in severe cases a picture or the mention of a spider is sufficient.

Hypnotherapy speaks to the subconscious mind, which is holding on to the fear and addresses the deep seated feelings that are causing the fear or phobia.  If you have a fear of spiders and you would like to have a no-obligation chat to see how we can help you, please do get in touch.
