Hypnotherapy for fear of spiders (arachnophobia) works incredibly well.
If you have a fear of spiders then ask yourself this: can a spider walk over your hand?
The answer is yes.
You might not like it and be scared so much you feel like passing out but it is physically possible for a spider to walk over your hand.
The point is that you can do it. We just need to tell your mind to stop being scared and let it happen.
Here’s how we do that.
How hypnotherapy for fear of spiders works
A phobia of spiders is caused by your mind linking fear and spiders.
This can be caused by many things such as:
- Seeing a spider just before being in a car crash
- Falling down stairs when you saw a spider
- Seeing a spider when you were high up
Your mind is associating spiders with those bad experiences.
If you had a car crash soon after seeing a spider then your mind is linking the pain from the crash with the image of the spider. For the heights one, your mind is thinking that spiders and heights go hand in hand.
Spider = you’re going to fall off a building and die.
It sounds silly when we say it like that but that’s the way the mind works.
How we fix your fear of spiders
You’ll enter a lovely state of hypnosis.
It’s really just like relaxing when you’re trying to sleep so don’t worry about it. You can find out more about how hypnosis works here.
The best way of fixing this issue is usually regression. We go back to the first time you had this issue and that brings up the time that made this problem grow.
Once you find that then we can teach your mind to stop associating this event with spiders.
You never know what it’s going to be and it may surprise you when you find out what it is.
It usually takes 1 or 2 sessions but it is different for everyone and can take a few more.
How would you like to feel about spiders instead?
You can’t get rid of behaviour, you can only change it.
It doesn’t work to just tell yourself to stop being afraid because the part of you that’s afraid won’t know what else to do. That’s where many self-help sessions and therapists go wrong.
How would you like to feel when you see a spider?
You can choose to feel calm, happy or even excited.
We always leave sensible fears in place. It’s good to stay wary of some spiders. If you’re on holiday and see a large poisonous one then it would be daft to go and pet it.
If you see a 6 foot wide spider walking down the street it would be wise to fear it and not run up and give it a hug.
You won’t be afraid of house spiders in the UK though and you will be able to deal with them without panic attacks and fear.
