What is a “Phobia”?

What is a “phobia?”

The best way to describe a phobia is that it is an anxiety attack or an anxiety disorder that occurs when we are exposed to situations, places or objects that of which we are fearful.

It can be described as an irrational fear but that does not help the sufferer to be told this. To them the fear is real and during an attack, they can experience some of these symptoms. They may experience a rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweaty palms, trembling and an urge to run or flee from the situation. Usually people who suffer from a phobia will try and avoid the situation, place or object that causes them anxiety.

A common fear or phobia amongst children is the fear of the dark. This will require affirmative action by the parent or guardian to help them overcome this. Usually leaving on a light will reassure them and help. Phobias are common and while other than childhood fears, phobias and fears usually develop during our teenage years and early adulthood. You may, as a child, been told never touch a spider and now ever time you see a spider you want to avoid it at all costs. This is a learned behavior that was drilled into you when you were young.

Phobias, to the sufferer, definitely cause a lot of anxiety and stress. If the situation can not be avoided, it is always a cause of concern to face the situation for the sufferer.

The best advice for any sufferer would be to seek medical help and advice. Phobias can be overcome and your doctor will be able to advise you.

Phobias may take time to cure but there have been several breaks through in recent years. One has been Thought Field Therapy (TFT). This system is based on tapping the various meridians of the body and the use of affirmations and was devised by American psychologist, Doctor Roger Callahan. Another similar treatment is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). If you suffer from a phobia, you may like to investigate both of these treatments.

Emotional Freedom Techniques(EFT) ®

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)® was and is an off shoot of Thought Field Therapy®. It was after Gary Craig trained with Dr. Roger Callaghan, a psychologist, in 1991 that EFT was born. Dr Callaghan had studied acupuncture and kinesiology. Gary was an engineer and was always interested in personal development and self improvement.

Gary started presenting seminars and offering “personal performance coaching.”

After Gary took training in Thought Field Therapy he began using this method on his clients. Over the next five years Gary was trying to simplify the tapping method.

Gary developed and refined the technique over the next five years. Gary released his Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) course in 1995.

It is used to treat the same problems or conditions as TFT such as phobias and fear, weight lose, stopping smoking and many more.

There have been several other therapists who also trained with Dr Callaghan that developed a different style but Gary Craig is the best known. Gary’s method is very simple and is very effective. There is documentary evidence that the success rate is over 80%.

If you want to find out how it works and differs to Though Field Therapy, watch the video and learn the points to tap. Again it is based on the meridian system of the body. The meridian system carries the life force throughout the body.
