The bodies reaction to fears and phobias may include, but not limited to: Trembling or Shaking, Palpitations, Shortness of Breath, Chest Pain or Discomfort, Hot or Cold Flushes, Numbness or Tingling Sensations, Sweating, Faint, Lightheadedness or Dizziness.
Although it's normal to experience fear in dangerous situations, it's our built-in survival mechanism, when fears are so extreme that they disrupt or interfere with daily activities or when the fear and danger is highly exaggerated or imagined (phobia) there must be a reason why, and it's that reason 'why' which Curative Hypnotherapy seeks to uncover; why you react to perceived dangers by producing such Fear or a Phobia within you when others in a similar situation do not. Only by identifying, understanding and correcting the reason 'why', why you to react to situations by experiencing Fear or a Phobia, only then can you be free from the effects and no longer react that way anymore.
