What IS a phobia?
Strong fears or phobic reactions are really just a reaction by the Subconscious mind to an object or situation which the Subconscious has decided ought to be avoided. This was not a conscious decision.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is simply a means of communicating with that part of the mind. The Subconscious mind is not involved in ordinary conversations, so all the reassurances in the world from friends or family - or anyone who just means well - will not make the slightest difference to a phobic reaction. Those people would not realise that the part of the mind controlling and triggering that reaction isn't listening to that conversation at all!
Any hypnotherapist who is expert in dealing with fears and phobias would know just how to get that message to the Subconscious and get the reaction shut down. Very often that can be done in a single hypnosis session and it will not return. Even if the fear did return - which is quite rare in my experience - it can be shut down again with a further session, no problem at all. But it is really quite unusual, once a phobic reaction has been eliminated with hypnotherapy, for it to occur again.
