We are born with only two fears: falling and loud noises. Other fears and phobias are generally learnt throughout our lifetime.
We can be subconsciously taught to fear something from the people around us or we can link a new fear in our own mind following a particular traumatic event (the initial sensitising event is often experienced before the age of 7).
Whether it is an extreme phobia you experience or an annoying fear that you would rather not have, hypnotherapy can help you eradicate those anxious emotional responses to your fears so that you can be set free of the irrational unwanted feelings.
