A phobia is a strong, irrational and out of proportion fear-reaction to something that poses little or no actual danger but just the thought of it and the resulting surge of adrenaline causes your physical body to react in what is known as the 'Fight or Flight Syndrome'. This reaction is old evolutionary stuff that is well embedded in our genes from over 900 million years of evolution ever since we crawled out of the primordial ooze and developed over the millennia as a necessary part of the survival of the species. The reaction may have been useful to our ancestor caveman/cavewoman but is usually not a lot of use to us now, however we now have the brain power in the frontal lobes of our neo-cortex which develops very good imaginations (based on our historical experiences) - imaginations which the old primitive parts of our brain interprets as being life-threatening and so kicks off the 'fight or flight' reaction.

If you have a phobia then you will try to avoid what you are afraid of. If you cannot avoid it then exposure to it will probably provoke a feeling of extreme anxiety or a panic attack, even thinking about it, as explained above, can cause the same reaction.  This type of avoidance can interfere with work and social functioning. You may feel weak or cowardly and lose self-esteem when avoiding whatever the phobia is about.

Anxieties and feelings of not being able to 'deal with the situation' is a disempowering experience and the combination of teaching/discussion and hypnotherapy that I work with is very successful in helping to overcome this. Although the catalogue of your difficulties and anxiety symptoms may sometimes seem quite varied we don't have to treat them as separate issues. You are a whole person and I treat you as such, these things will all be inter-related in some way.
