Do you start to cringe at thought of turning out the lights?
Does the thought of walking in a dark alley cause you to panic?
Most people do not want to admit to anyone that they have a fear of the dark, because they are embarrassed. After all, being afraid of the dark is something we should have outgrown in childhood. If your fear is preventing you from living your life fully, then you would likely benefit from hypnosis.
Hypnosis can help reprogram your mind and facilitate behavioral change.

A fear is defined as a phobia when it is continual, excessive, and causes a change in your behavior. While some people may simply prefer not to walk into a dark room, a person with a phobic response to the dark will think about it during the day. You may become terrified at just thinking about a dark room, and might even start to panic if you try to walk out into the dark of night. If this is you, hypnosis can help.
Utilizing hypnosis we can help you reprogram your mind to eliminate your fear. By identifying what is causing your phobia, and then changing how your mind views this trigger, hypnosis can facilitate a change in your mental, emotional, and physical response to the dark.
Your subconscious mind is like a huge database that stores everything you have done, witnessed, or felt during your life. These memories are then used by your mind to unconsciously influence how you behave and respond to current situations. If you have a memory, one that you consciously remember or not, of something bad that happened in the dark, even if you didn’t experience it yourself, your subconscious might use this memory to prevent you from going into the dark. The problem is that your subconscious is evidently exaggerating this memory to such an extent that you have developed a phobic response to the dark.
Unlike other methods, hypnosis delves into the subconscious mind to get to the root of the problem. We can help guide you into a natural state of hypnosis that will allow access to the innermost reaches of your mind. We can then help you identify what memory is triggering your fear of the dark. Once identified, we can reprogram your subconscious so that it no longer uses this memory to induce the irrational fears.
We at the NY Hypnosis Institute will then plant positive affirmations directly into your subconscious mind. For example, if you panic when you have to work late because you know you will have to walk through a dark alley in order to enter your house, we can teach your mind that it does not have to fear overtime work because whatever bad thing is locked in your memory has no place in your life now.
In addition, we can also train your mind to enjoy walking in the dark so you can appreciate the peace of darkness and the way the crickets chirp and the tree frogs bellow at night. We will help your subconcious mind to release the stress and anxiety it is associating with the dark, so your fear will be eliminated.
Once you complete your hypnosis for fear of the dark sessions, you will have the freedom to watch a meteor shower, or observe firsthand the beauty of a full moon. You will likely be able to turn the lights off in your home and sleep in the dark.
If you’re tired of constantly having to avoid dark spaces, then you should consider fear of the dark hypnosis.
