Flying worries you. Perhaps it makes you so nervous that you worry about it for weeks before the event, and you may even start to feel sick if you just think about it. 

Perhaps you're so anxious about driving through a tunnel you go miles out of your way to avoid it.

If this sounds familiar you may have a phobia. A phobia is defined as something you will actively avoid. Clinical hypnotherapy can help.

A phobia is a persistent fear of an object or a situation. Sometimes this fear can begin to manifest from the fear of something that may have potential danger - flying, some spiders, driving - this can compound and give legitimate foundation to your phobia.

With an acute phobia the accompanying fear is a strong desire to avoid what you fear and, in some cases, an inability to function at normal tasks in your job and in social settings.

You may logically know the situation does not warrant the fear but nevertheless experience extreme anxiety. Sometime phobias and panic attacks may present together.

Phobias are among several anxiety disorders, which also include panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obssessive-compulsive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. More than 12 percent of the population experiences a phobia at some point in life
