A phobia is an extreme fear of, or anxiety about, a particular object or situation. Common fears, like fear of snakes, are not a major problem for most people. If you have a phobia that interferes with your life, such as fear of heights, fear of flying, or fear of closed spaces (claustrophobia), hypnosis for stress relief can help. You can relieve the stress of the phobia by giving yourself positive suggestions about how you react to the situation without fear and visualize yourself handling the situation normally. The phobia may be caused by an incident in the past. You may be able to recall that and relieve the fear by going over it, or you may want to see a qualified hypnotist to help you get rid of the phobia.
