Without exception, every client with whom I have worked to get over their fears and phobias admit there is no logical or rational reason to have them and perceive it has got to be hard to be rid of them.
I have helped hundreds of clients get over their fears and phobias with a single session.
Fear is an emotion that is based on an impending event that holds a reasonable degree of danger to your well-being or that of your family, friends or possessions. And that is good! A fear that is founded on a genuine threat prepares you to respond in an appropriate way and enhances the likelihood of avoiding a danger or loss. However, when fear is based on an imagined threat, it is called a phobia and keeps you from doing things and going places that would otherwise be convenient and pleasurable.
A phobia is a fear that is centered on an irrational response to something that holds little or no danger to your safety or security. Imagined fear inhibits one from engaging in activities that could otherwise bring convenience and pleasure. For example, the fear of elevators (claustrophobia) creates an obvious inconvenience, the fear of heights (Acrophobia) keeps a person from enjoying a view of the Grand Canyon and a fear of flying (Aviophobia) keeps a person from going places quickly and safely.
Irrational fears and phobias are simply the consequence of false perceptions – perceiving a threat to be real when it isn’t real.
It is rational for a soldier going into battle to experience fear, but it is not rational to be afraid of a mouse. A soldier’s fear of going to war is based on a real threat; going into hysterics over seeing a mouse is a phobia “a conditioned response to the sight of a mouse”. More accurately put: Going into hysterics at the sight of a mouse is based on a false perception – the false perception that mice harm people. Sure, mice get into your stuff and leave “mouse tracks” around but the perception that one will hurt you is a false one.
It is wise to exercise caution and have some apprehension when approaching the top edge of a 1,000 foot cliff; but it is irrational to stay in the car when you consciously know you would be perfectly safe to stand next to a safety rail and enjoy a majestic view of the Grand Canyon. Having a false perception that there something to fear keeps you from enjoying a magnificent experience.
