The most popular treatment is to see a psychologist, psychiatrist, hypnotherapist, and/or hypnotist. These types of doctors can try to help the person cope with the phobia or understand what is causing the problem so it can be resolved. I have also listed below the types of treatment which might be recommended.
Hypnoanalysis (also called Hypnotherapy)
Hypnoanalysis (Hypnotherapy) is a type of therapy by which a person, with the assistance of a trained specialist, has his/her subconscious mind opened to suggestion for the purpose of changing one or more behavior patterns. When the subconscious is spoken to directly, it may be possible to find the issue triggering the phobia and introduce new ideas and positive suggestions. These positive suggestions may then be used to help make the changes you desire, such as being able to freely go to the doctor. Teaching the mind to attach different feelings to doctors, needles or medical treatments can usually be accomplished in a several sessions. Some people do not like people playing with their minds. However, hypnoanalysis (hypnotherapy) is considered to be safe and works fast. Hypnoanalysis (Hypnotherapy) has been approved as a method of therapy since 1958 by the American Medical Association.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
NLP is basically the study and practice of how we create our reality. The basic premise of NLP is that the words we use reflect an inner, subconscious perception of our problems. If these words and perceptions are inaccurate, they will create an underlying problem as long as we continue to use and to think them. Our attitudes are, in a sense, a self-fulfilling prophecy. In this therapy a neuro linguistic therapist will analyze every word and phrase you use in describing your symptoms or concerns about your health. He or she will examine your facial expressions and body movements. After determining problems in your perception, the therapist will help you understand the root cause. The therapist will help you remodel your thoughts and mental associations in order to fix your preconceived notions. These preconceived notions may be keeping you from achieving the success you deserve. Please visit www.holistic-online.com for more information on this topic.
Energy Psychology is a type of therapy that uses various techniques, such as acupressure, yoga, t ai chi, prana, qi gong, and energy medicine, which teach people simple steps for making changes in their lives. The techniques stimulate energy points on the surface of the skin which, when paired with specific psychological procedures, can shift the brain’s electrochemistry. While this type of therapy is still a controversial area, it appears to be very help with dealing with phobias.
