Phobia and Fears
Spiders, Snakes, Sharks, Clowns, Balloons, Lifts, Tube trains /stations.
It makes absolutely no logical sense, why would a full size human being find the sight of a tiny spider so terrifying? Why can most people cope quite happily in a tube station yet, some people have a panic attacks?
It is widely accepted that flying is one of the safest forms of travel, yet fear of flying is extremely common.
At some point, the unconscious mind has made an erroneous connection and decided that these things are life-threatening. The immediate response from the unconscious mind is 'fight, flight or freeze'. It starts sending out stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline is the hormone that makes us feel shaky, it's primary function is to enhance the performance ability of the body, so we can run faster or fight harder. Our heart starts to race, pumping oxygen around the body, our breathing increases and we are all set to fight or flee. Unfortunately, much as that is a great response if we need to fight a wild animal as our ancestors would have done, it is a massive over-reaction to a spider.
A spider phobia, for example, is most likely to have been a learnt response. A child constantly looks to their parents to learn how to react to things and, if their mother is screaming about a spider, they will replicate that response.
Using Sanomentology techniques, phobias are usually resolved in a single session *
