Be Fearless With Therapy for Phobias at Miami Hypnosis & Therapy

No one likes living in fear, and when those fears impose on your life, it can cripple you emotionally and mentally. There are many different types of phobias, but the root meaning of the word “phobia” is an irrational fear of something that is not likely to cause harm.

Phobias are a type of anxiety disorder, and when ignited within us can cause panic attacks, which are sudden periods of intense fear. These panic attacks can then lead to physical symptoms such as:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

The psychological symptoms can include:

  • Fear of dying
  • Fear of losing control
  • Fear of fainting

Treatment for Phobias

You can combat the fear with therapy for phobias, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is based on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors being interrelated. The root of the fear is in the thought itself, which creates the feeling and thus the end behavior.

CBT for phobias has been proven to be very effective by helping to manage fears more productively. CBT will gradually change the way you think about those fears. For example, if you have a fear of snakes, you may be asked to start by reading a book about snakes. The next step might be to see a movie about snakes and eventually being able to hold a snake. This process is also called exposure therapy and is a common modality to treat patients with phobic concerns.

At Miami Hypnosis & Therapy, we offer many different types of therapies for phobias, including CBT. Our principal therapist, Anna Marchenko (LMHC, Ed.M) designs tailor-made treatment plans, and sessions are conducted in a safe and peaceful environment.
