Treatment for Phobias

Alphabetical List of Phobias – U-V-W

It is normal to have some fear of many of the things or situations in this alphabetical list. Fear of pain, for example, is a natural and rational human thought; so is fear of atomic explosion. However for a natural fear to become a phobia, it must cause you significant distress, and affect the way you live your life. You would probably not choose to have a painful injection – but if you really suffer with needle phobia then you may go as far as avoiding essential medical treatment or tests, or avoid getting pregnant. Most people would choose to feel well rather than feel sick, and would rather not watch someone else being sick – but if you really have a phobia of vomiting (emetophobia) then you may go as far as avoiding car, coach or train travel, eating out, pubs and bars (because people there may be sick) – or even avoid having a child because you fear morning sickness. The phobias listed here are severe, irrational fears and phobias which stop you from living life normally, which preoccupy you, and which cause you (and your family and friends) inconvenience, distress and upset.

What is a phobia?

Every phobia is really just a particular type of anxiety – you feel very strong panic and fear about certain situations or objects. The body responds to this fear by giving you a shot of adrenalin. It may feel very similar to a panic attack. You may well go to great lengths to avoid the thing you have a phobia of and this can really get in the way of you living your life. The phobia specialists at Stockport Hypnotherapy can help get rid of your phobia for good.
