Steve Carey, our resident Clinical Hypnotherapist has penned this piece about phobias. Phobias can be debilitating for some people and can effect the quality of life for some. Read what Steve has to say on the topic and give us a call to find out more.
Do you have a phobia? Lots of people will say they have a 'phobia' of spiders, snakes, heights or public speaking - but what they really mean is they have a healthy respect for them. A phobia is different. A phobia of snakes, for example, can mean that when you enter an office building in the middle of the city, you look around the floor for anything snakelike... even while part of you is busily telling yourself that you're being stupid and that there's no snake. It's tough having a phobia.
