A few nights ago I spotted a very large spider moving speedily through my kitchen. I’m not phobic but I insist the big ones live outside – so out it went.
In my pre-hypno days I had no idea there was such a thing as spider season but there is and it’s almost here. Studies identify mid-September to mid-October as the height of the season, as the males go on the hunt for a mate.
Only you can decide if the problem is significant enough to seek help. If it’s debilitating and starting to affect your life or you’re concerned about passing it onto your children it’s time to bring in the professionals.
Practical tips include:
- extra vacuuming – high and low level,
- removing webs,
- filling gaps between walls, pipework and under doors
- removing places spiders hang out (wood piles, compost heaps) and
- controlling lighting to deter insects.
Hypnotherapy for Arachnophobia
If you’re suffering you want to know does hypnotherapy work for spider phobias? The answer is yes – IF the right techniques are used. Many studies have compared the type of strategies I use with medication and one found these were more effective than beta-blockers.
The main part of our work together is helping you overcome your fears by building up in stages to the most fear provoking images or situations. We do this using an evidence-based therapy used by psychologists and other professional for more than 50 years to help people overcome phobias and anxiety disorders.
You’ll learn to:
– dispute irrational thoughts/beliefs
– stop the thoughts that drive fearful anticipation
– build up to managing even your worst case scenario
– become calmer.
A traditional hypnotherapist uses the fast phobia cure but studies show a success rate of just 50% and I don’t think that’s good enough. With an evidence-based approach there’s no revisiting past traumas and you’re in safe hands.
