Scared of spiders?When you see a spider do you experience any of these symptoms?
- Trembling and sweating
- Feelings of losing control
- Rapid heart rate
- Hot or cold flashes
- Chest pain
- Feeling of choking
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
Being scared of spiders is actually quite common. Most people are not particularly keen on them, but for some, the level of fear and anxiety is crippling, and can reduce some people to a trembling jelly!
It can be embarrassing when that automatic response kicks in and and you just can’t help yourself from reacting.
What would life be like if you were no longer scared of spiders?
Imagine what it would be like to deal with spiders just like everyone else. You could ignore them. You could simply pop a glass tumbler over them, slip a piece of paper underneath and usher them safely into the garden.
It would be great to remain calm and just deal with it, wouldn’t it?
Hypnotherapy can help you if you are scared of spiders
Hypnosis is a powerful tool that you can use to change the way that you think about spiders. More importantly, you can use hypnosis to change the uncomfortable automatic response that you experience, when you encounter a spider.
Unfortunately we are unable to control that automatic fear response with logic alone. Let’s face it, from a logical perspective, there is really no need to be terrified. In the UK , almost every spider that we are likely to come across is going to be completely harmless. Yet we are still afraid.
This fear is a learned response and happens below the level of our conscious awareness. Hypnosis allows us to communicate with that part of the mind that runs this well-intentioned protective mechanism.

Overcome Your fear of Spiders like Andrea Green did
Andrea contacted me because her fear of spiders was becoming increasingly difficult to deal with. She lives a little of of town and the rural environment meant that there were frequently spiders in the house.
On this occasion we managed to remove the problem in the first session which lasted about 75 minutes. Andrea emailed to say:
”’A massive thank you, you achieved the impossible and it feels great. It was very strange as my brain literally switched the message it gave itself”
