Hypnotherapy is a prescription free method of treating a fear of insects. Hypnotic trance is a relaxing but highly attentive state that is induced by following the verbal directions of a hypnotherapist. The unconscious mind is accessed and can be programmed to eliminate any insect related phobias. Patients are awake and often remember what has transpired. It is common to lose track of time and feel like the hypnotherapy session was much shorter than it was. 

Why hypnotherapy works

The key to overcoming a fear of insects is uncovering and reframing the initial sensitizing event. The subconscious mind uses our experiences as a reference to keep us safe. It reminds us to be careful with the fight or flight response. In hypnotic trance, the event that triggered the client’s Entomophobia can be quickly discovered. Once identified, the certified hypnotist can help the patient let it go. This in turn eliminates, the fight or flight response, generated by the unconscious mind.
