A new study compares phobias and their effects on the body. In response the NCH details how hypnotherapy can help clients to beat phobias.


Phobias are deep rooted in a human’s brain and hypnotherapy looks at changing their approach and how they feel about phobias.

According to the Popular Science, around 3 to 4 percent of the population have a phobia to blood or a related disorder. This is an extreme fear of blood which creates fainting, vomiting and a change in heart rate. Causes have been linked to trauma in childhood or adolescence and to possible genetic links. The findings made by Popular Science, found that blood phobia was different to other phobias in the fact that it slowed down blood pressure and heart rate on sight of blood – rather than increasing as other phobias did, often causing fainting.

There are many ways to resolve phobias one of which includes hypnotherapy. The National Council for Hypnotherapy offers members of the public an in-depth hypnotherapist guide to therapists based throughout the UK offering help with phobias, habits, anxiety and weight loss. A spokesperson from the Council explained how the complementary therapy could help those suffering with phobias, ‘Phobias are deep rooted in a human’s brain and hypnotherapy looks at changing their approach and how they feel about phobias. Phobias can be wide ranging from spiders to more extreme conditions like blood, yet hypnotherapy will treat everyone the same – aiming to realign and help patients overcome such intense feelings of anxiety and fear.’

The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to promote the use of hypnotherapy to aid people with phobias and anxiety issues.

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
