Fear of the Dark – Updating out-of-date unconscious fear responses is easier with hypnosis
Fear of the dark is something that haunts many people in childhood, but for some this fear continues into later life. Despite the adult knowledge that ‘there is nothing there’, the fear is stronger and overrides logic.
Like any fear, fear of the dark can arise at any time and for many reasons, but happily hypnosis is extremely effective at treating fears and phobias.
An old tale about habitual fears
There is an ancient story of a man who, when a child, was told by his father that he must never, ever go into the old creaky shed behind the barn. As this man grew up and took over the farm he turned it into a model of efficiency, except for the old shed.
One day a friend asked him why he hadn’t done something with it, and he said he really didn’t know. He thought about this, and pondered on it, and then in the middle of the night, awoke, went downstairs and lifted an old rusty key off a hook.
He went to the shed, opened the door and went inside. Shining his torch into the dark he saw old tools, rusty nails, broken floorboards and so on. All of which made it a very dangerous place for a young boy.
He had left the shed alone all that time because although his conscious mind was adult, he still had the unconscious attitude of fear towards the shed that his father had used to keep him safe.
How hypnosis can help
The trouble with fear is that it overrides the newer part of the brain, the neocortex. That means you can know consciously something isn’t dangerous at the same time as being terrified of it.
Hypnosis is excellent at updating unconscious responses. Essentially it is just helping you understand at the emotional level that there is no danger.
The Overcome Fear of the Dark hypnosis session will help update your unconscious understanding of the dark to allow you to enjoy it without fear.
