Hypnotherapy Newcastle for helping you break free of debilitating phobias and fears. Phobias are known as irrational but they are perfectly rational when you have a conscious understanding and a neuro biological basis of how they are formed. Hypnotherapy Newcastle can help you to be free of phobic responses.
A true phobic response, should you see one or worse experience one, is really very dramatic. You will see and witness a person loosing all control of normal consciousness and watching them experiencing feeling the completely debilitating experience of a full blown traumatic stress response. This is clearly not the same as feeling fear albeit debilitating.
What a vast majority of clients I see for what they called phobias are really fears because a phobic response will activate a full freeze, flight or fight ( in that order ) response. A phobic response will feel like terror and your autonomic nervous system will pretty much take full control of you and as a result you will be quite literally incapacitated.
Hypnotherapy Newcastle is a psychological and neuro biological method for helping you to break the tyranny of ‘irrational’ phobic responses by attempting to rewire your neural networks that are responsible for phobic responses. There will be a trigger or triggers that cause the phobic response. Hypnotherapy Newcastle to help you de-couple your phobia triggers.
Phobias and Fears
Phobias and regular fears tend to be formed with a single or multiple occasion conditioning where there is both a stress response and activation of the amygdaloid bodies in the limbic system. The amygdala is involved in a kind of less than conscious memory ( fear, phobic response ) and activates when a person feels fear or experiences a phobic response.
During a major stressor ACTH is poured out from the pituitary and causes release of glucocorticoids from the adrenal glands. When we survive a threatening or dangerous situation it is of high certitude that the levels of stress hormones, glucocorticoids in the body during and after the trauma are massively elevated.
For a phobic response to now be laid down neurologically speaking there needs to be a link, a connection between the the feelings in the body and some trigger. The trigger really could be just about anything and this is where the notion of an irrational phobia comes from.
other times the trigger is well known and seems to have an obvious link, for instance, a spider for a person having a phobic response to spiders. The traumatic incidence here could have been a child hood event where as a child a nest of 100’s of spiders fell into their hair and face. The sympathetic nervous system explodes into action, a child terrified and the trigger is neurologically hard wired in.
