Does the thought or sight of spiders, insects or other animals fill you with fear?

Many people are scared of spiders and sometimes insects and other animals too. If you came across a large tarantula, your natural self protective instinct would tell you that you need to be cautious, especially if you don’t know what sort of spider it is and whether it could be harmful or not.

Fear of Spiders, Animals & Insects

But what if the large spider wasn’t a tarantula? What if you were sat at home watching TV and a small, ordinary and harmless house spider walked across the floor? Looking at the situation objectively, you know that the spider is probably far more scared of a human who is many thousands of times bigger than itself. However, your subconscious mind perceives the situation in exactly the same way as it would if a whole army of large tarantulas was trekking across the floor.

Therapy Sessions

The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Many people have found hypnotherapy helpful for addressing fear of spiders and animals and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental can help you to overcome your fears. Working with your subconscious mind, relaxation and anxiety release techniques can be taught which will enable you to develop a new calmer way of responding and leave the fear behind in the past.
