So what is a phobia?

A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of, and a desire to avoid, certain object/s, animals, events or situations. The word is derived from the Greek word “phobos” meaning extreme fear and flight. The ancient Greek god, Phobos, was believed to be able to reduce the enemies of the Greeks to a state of terror, making victory in battle more likely.

You are not born with a phobia – it is a learned response. A response that you have simply programmed into your mind, when confronted by the phobic stimulus and sometimes, even the anticipation or thought of the situation is enough to provoke the response and the person then begins to experience the classic symptoms of panic attacks. Using hypnotherapy, Elliott can re-programme your thoughts, change your associations and replace them with new, more appropriate feelings.

Fear of spiders

Arachnophobia is an extreme fear of spiders. This phobia can often be triggered by the thought of or sometimes even a picture of a spider. As with all phobias, this is not simply a case of just disliking a spider, a phobia of spiders can be extremely debilitating from entering a room and actually looking to see if a spider is in the room, to being completely frozen and terrified at the very sight of a spider.

Phobia of spiders can be learned by watching a parent acting fearful and entering into a physical panic, overhearing a conversation about how scary a spider can look, or the way a spider moves. Many people don’t even remember the events which led to their phobia. When the film Arachnophobia came out there was a 20% increase in the number of people that sought help in overcoming their fear of spiders, from either watching the film or seeing the advert or even just knowing the film had been released. Elliott has used hypnosis to help long-time phobics in front of countless live audiences.

“I have been terrified of spiders for as long as I can remember. It was really getting so bad that I would burst into tears and run away from spiders. I wouldnt even dare go into the garage. I also wouldn’t sleep in my room if there had been a spider in there during the day, not even after a full inspection of my room. I went to see Elliott Wald and now I can pick up small spiders. I no longer burst into tears any more or run away. I can also go in the garage and sleep in my room when there has been a spider in there (as long as the spider has gone). Thanks to Elliott my life isn’t ruled by spiders anymore. x”
