Arachnophobia. How Hypnotherapy Can Stop You Being Afraid of Spiders

Enter your text here...

Arachnophobia can vary from person to person.  Some get away with just feeling uncomfortable around spiders.  Some people are absolutely terrified of spiders and can't be in the same room as them.  Everyone's version of arachnophobia is different and unique to them.  If you are one of the ones that just feels uncomfortable around spiders, you're much less likely to look at having hypnotherapy.  If you are afraid of spiders and can't be in the same room as them, you really need to be looking at hypnosis as a way of curing your spider phobia.

If you are one of these people that runs away from spiders, you will know how debilitating it can be.  You are in panic mode, screaming and totally afraid.  It's not a great way to feel when you come across a spider.

Plus on top of that, all spiders to you seem to have some sort of flashing beacon on their heads.  Yelling "I'm HERE!!!"

You are going to see spiders that most people are totally unaware of.  Because you have arachnophobia, your mind is on alert for them. It's knows all of the places that they can hide and where spiders might appear from.  And it is constantly scanning those areas.

Here at Goole Hypnotherapy, I have developed a 90 minute session that will help you to squash your arachnophobia for good.  If you have already decided that you would like to do this just click here to book your consultation.

What is Arachnophobia?

Arachnophobia, as spoken about in Wikipedia, is the unreasonable fear of spiders and other arachnids such as scorpions.  This fear can cause many symptoms and people can react to spiders in a variety of ways.

Knowing that you are much bigger than the spider doesn't bring any relief.  Some call the fear irrational, and yet, I  say that no fear is irrational.

You have a fear that is triggered by seeing, hearing about or sensing a spider.  When that fear comes, it is very real for you and your reaction is programmed.  

There is always a reason behind this fear just like all other fears.

Why Am I Afraid of Spiders?


You are more than likely afraid of spiders because you have seen someone else that has a fear of spiders.  They reacted to a spider in a way that showed fear and you learned that behaviour from them. 

Sorry mothers, but you are going to take the heat on this one.  

It's normally from your mum being afraid of spiders.  When you are very young, you see them scream and/or run away from a spider.  This then imprints into your subconscious mind that the tiny little spider is something to be very afraid of.  You are now conditioned to be afraid when you see a spider.

Now that you have been conditioned to be afraid of spiders, you react in the way that you have been programmed to react.  You repeat this program again and again.  Over time, you have a fully functioning "reaction programming" to follow when you see a spider.

Now you label yourself as having arachnophobia.

Really, all you have is a conditioned response that doesn't serve you.  Hypnotherapy is great at changing how you respond to many things.  Hence why I recommend hypnotherapy for arachnophobia.

How Hypnotherapy Works

subconscious and arachnophobia goole selby

Hypnotherapy is an amazing tool to use to squash your spider phobia.  Hypnotherapy helps to open up the conditioned part of your mind.  Your subconscious mind is where all of your fears and beliefs live.  It is their little home.

Your subconscious mind is the powerhouse of your brain.  All of the automatic programs that your mind runs are also stored in there.  These are here so that you can get through your day without having to think about every little thing that you have to do.  Without these automatic programs we would spend nearly all day just focusing on breathing.

Hypnotherapy opens up your subconscious mind so that these programs and beliefs can be changed much easier.  

I use hypnotherapy without you needing to relive a traumatic memory.  You don't need to go to a painful memory and relive it.  Your subconscious mind is fully aware of what the cause is.  It is also aware of all of the beliefs you have that support you having arachnophobia.  The system I have developed removes the root cause and also any negative beliefs holding your fear of spiders in.

Fear of Flying Hypnotherapy Testimonial

I love getting hypnotherapy testimonials.  Honestly it absolutely makes my day.  I really love seeing my clients happy and breaking past their old fears and/or behaviours.  That's why when I received this fear of flying testimonial I had a MASSIVE smile on my face.

Not only is it a great endorsement but he actually took the video while going through turbulence!  He did that while looking like one of the most relaxed people on the plane.  How's that for a hypnotherapy testimonial?

Previously he had a pretty bad fear of flying.  His fear of flying was so bad that he would be sick before the flight.
