Rewiring Your Brain for Heightened Confidence: How Hypnosis Can Help You Overcome Fear

Releasing lifelong fears is actually a lot easier than you may think, when you go to the very control center of that fear.

Do Heights Fill You With Dread, Stress & Fear?

Do You Struggle with Panic or Anxiety on Balconies, Tall Buildings, Cliff Tops, Bridges, Planes or Amusement Park Rides?

No problem. It's far more common than you may think - and even better, it can be reversed, easily and effortlessly.

Many people around the world suffer from a whole range of physical and mental anxiety symptoms, whenever they are close to heights of any kind.

As the condition is a type of mental 'program' running on our internal software, it keeps creating the same fear, over and over again, until it can be changed at its source.

And though the anxiety is internal, the symptoms can feel both internal and external.

Common Causes of Phobias Related to Heights

Past Trauma
A traumatic experience, such as falling from a height or witnessing someone else fall, can create a lasting negative impressions.

Some studies have suggested that a predisposition to anxiety disorders, including acrophobia, may be inherited.

Brain Chemistry
Certain neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine, may play a role in regulating anxiety responses, and imbalances in these chemicals may contribute to acrophobia.

Evolutionary Factors
Some experts suggest that it may be an evolutionary adaptation to help protect us from falls and injury.

If a person has an anxiety or negative experience while located in a high place, such as feeling dizzy or nauseous, they may associate that feeling in the future, leading to an automatic response.

Cultural Factors
Cultural beliefs and attitudes towards heights can also influence a person's fear of heights.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, over the years I created many hypnosis recordings for people experiencing these vertigo, or acrophobia, symptoms.

The most effective treatment for symptoms is by dealing with the issue right at the very source - the subconscious mind - and this is also the most permanent solution, as well - to ensure it does not come back.

Hypnosis is one of the main therapeutic techniques used to treat a vast variety of conditions, including many phobias.

The goal is to access and reprogram the subconscious to develop more positive associations with heights.

During a hypnosis session, or the audio recordings I create, on this site (as per below) - a hypnotherapist often uses techniques such as visualization or guided imagery to create mental images of yourself in situations involving heights, and to help you feel calm and confident in these situations.

It can also uncover and address any underlying psychological blockages that may be contributing to the phobia, such as past trauma or anxiety.


Hypnosis helps to 're-program' our mind until symptoms you experience continually reduce, until they eventually disappear completely.


And so when the acrophobia 'program' is changed or deleted with hypnosis, the result is a feeling of calm control and a steady reduction of the physical symptoms, until they disappear completely.

This is where hypnosis can be of major assistance - for those wishing to look into this further, see the link below to my audio program for this.





Of course, there are also the slower and longer-term methods, such as:

• Gradual exposure therapy
This involves gradually exposing oneself to heights in a controlled and safe environment, such as starting with standing on a chair and gradually increasing the height over time. This can help desensitize the individual to the phobia and build confidence.

• Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
This is a type of therapy that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with their aversion - such as techniques like relaxation exercises, guided imagery, and exposure therapy.

• Virtual reality therapy
This involves using virtual reality technology to simulate various high types of scenarios in a controlled environment, allowing individuals to face their fears in a safe and controlled setting.

• Mindfulness meditation
This involves focusing on the present moment and accepting one's thoughts and feelings without judgment. Mindfulness meditation can help individuals develop a sense of calm and reduce anxiety.

• Exercise and physical activity
Regular exercise can help reduce stress and anxiety, which can in turn help individuals feel more relaxed and confident in high places.

• Seek professional help
In some cases, it may be necessary to seek professional help from a therapist or psychologist who specializes in treating phobias.

But certainly the faster ways to see improvement are through the hypnosis, which can be a far more cost and time-effective treatment.

There are actually 7 different types of related phobias, which include:

• Acrophobia
This is the most common name - derived from the Greek words "acron" (meaning summit) and "phobos" (meaning fear).

• Altophobia
This is another name for the apprehension about high places.

• Batophobia
This is a specific version which refers to being close to tall buildings or other man-made structures.

• Vertigo
This is a sensation of spinning or dizziness, which can be triggered by heights.

• Aerophobia
A broader term that refers to the phobia of flying, but it can also include heights.

• Climacophobia
Strong aversion to climbing.

• Hypsophobia
Dread of high places, which can also be accompanied by a fear of falling.

However, these can all be treated by hypnosis
