Agoraphobia affects about 1 person in 20. Sometimes it is a temporary disorder and sometimes it grows into a complete fear of being in a crowd or a fear of being outside. This can grow to the point that the person cannot bring himself or herself to leave the comfort and security of their own home. For those who suffer with this phobia, a crowd could consist of a crowd as little as 3 or 4 people.
The most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines the criteria for mental disorders. One of these disorders is agoraphobia which is an anxiety about being in places or situations that include being outside the home alone, in a crowd, standing in a line, traveling in a moving vehicle, or crossing a bridge. The agoraphobic avoids being in these situations at all costs.
Hypnosis can help reprogram your mind and facilitate behavioral change.
The New York Hypnosis Institute 4 Step Agoraphobia Hypnosis Program Can Help You
- Identify When, Where, and What Triggers Your Fears
- Replace Catastrophic Thoughts with Truthful Statements
- Assist in Reprogramming the Way You Think About & React to Open Spaces & Crowds
- Teach Self Hypnosis for Daily Reinforcement
Somewhere, hiding in the psyche, there are fears and feelings that convince agoraphobics that there is danger lurking in open spaces. The body accepts this analysis and responds with the usual fear based reactions. Adrenalin starts pumping and all the attendant body reactions take place as if there was a real danger about to descend on the person.
Fear of open spaces hypnosis helps replace the negative subconscious thoughts which lead to stress and anxiety with more pleasant and positive subconscious thoughts and feelings. The NY Hypnosis Institute specializes in helping clients overcome fears.
Hypnosis is a natural state, that when achieved, allows your hypnotist to access your subconscious mind. When you watch a movie, read a book, or focus on a project at work and lose track of time, you are experiencing hypnosis. Once a client is guided into hypnosis, we at the NY Hypnosis Institute can then give positive suggestions directly to the subconscious mind.
Chances are something in your past is to blame. However, it’s not uncommon for the subconscious mind to blow things out of proportion, so you may not even remember the past event that has led to your current fear! Something as simple as getting lost in a crowd as a child might be the initial fear inducing event.
During a New York Hypnosis fear of crowds hypnosis session, you can identify the event from your past that has been blown out of proportion. Your hypnotist can then reframe the way your subconscious mind perceives that event, allowing the fear and anxiety to be released. Essentially your hypnotist will teach your subconscious mind that those negative experiences from your past no longer need to impact you negatively.
We will identify the feelings and triggers you experience so that the suggestions given to your subconscious mind will be tailored to your specific challenge. With the combination of regression and suggestions the fear can be eliminated in just a few sessions.
If you’re tired of constantly having to avoid situations because they involve crowds, open spaces, crossing bridges, standing in line, and/or traveling in a moving vehicle, then you should consider agoraphobia hypnosis.
A New York Hypnosis Fear of Open Spaces hypnosis session can retrain your mind to:
Eliminate your fear of spaces completely
Provide you with the freedom to travel in moving vehicles
Allow you to actually enjoy beautiful views that can be seen while crossing a bridge
Enable you to enjoy events no matter how large the crowd
