How to Overcome a Fear of Heights with Hypnotherapy
Fear of heights (Acrophobia) is a natural survival instinct. It is a feeling response to the sensation of height. It is normal to have it but it can also be debilitating when the feelings trigger stress and anxiety.
Fear of heights is a fairly common phobia that affects approximately 12% of the adult population. As previously mentioned, the feeling often manifests itself in people’s daily lives by causing panic attacks or a general state of anxiety when they are confronted with an object or location that triggers the feelings. Fear can also be triggered by balconies, escalators, bridges, and tall buildings. As mentioned in last month’s article, fear causes the body to release more adrenaline into the bloodstream.
