The months of August and September are the months when we see large spiders in the home. Unfortunately for arachnophobia sufferers, it’s the time of year when the large male spiders are on the move, looking for a mate.
Many people suffer from arachnophobia and spider phobia hypnosis help appointments are available with West Yorkshire based clinical hypnotherapist, Jill Wilson.
A phobia is defined as an overwhelming, debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. A phobic reaction is more pronounced than a response to a fear and they can develop due to a number of reasons.
There isn’t a single cause, but there are a number of associated factors which may result in a phobic response developing, such as:
- a phobic response may be associated with a particular incident or trauma
- a phobias can be learned and the phobic response can be a learned response that a person develops early in life from a parent
- there may be a tendency to be anxious than other people
Phobic responses develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object, however, to the phobia sufferer, these feelings are intensely real and distressing as well as restricting as they may organise their life around avoiding the thing that is the cause of their anxiety.
