Spring Time Phobias

Overcoming your fear of Creepy Crawlies: How Clinical Hypnotherapy can help dissolves your Fears


Spring has arrived and as the flowers bloom, it’s time to acknowledge some of the less endearing aspects of the season for some – Insects, Flies, and Butterflies to name a few!

Despite their small size, these creatures have a remarkable ability to evoke fear in many people which can be intense and irrational, often leading to avoidant behaviours and most certainly unnecessary stress. If these fears are ones that affect yourself or a loved one, you’ll be reassured to know there is a way to tackle them at their root, allowing you to coexist peacefully with these tiny creatures.  Enter Clinical Hypnotherapy which is solution focused and a gentle process enabling numerous clients to find relief from their fear or phobias. In this blog, we’ll explore Hypnotherapy and how it can help you overcome your fear of insects.

Before diving into the solution, first let’s take a look at the issue at hand. The fear of insects also known as Entomophobia, and Butterflies/Moths known as Lepidopterophobia, are common phobias that affects millions worldwide. These fear can stem from a variety of factors, including past traumatic experiences, learnt behavior from friends or family members, or simply an exaggerated stress response (flight/fight/freeze) to the perceived threat posed by these animals. Regardless of the cause, these effects can be debilitating, impacting daily life, preventing outdoor enjoyment whilst causing unnecessary distress.


Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy is an amazing therapeutic modality with its fundementals based within Neuroscience, it utilises hypnosis to bring about a deeply relaxed state of heightened focus and suggestibility. Contrary to popular belief or embellished tv shows, hypnosis is not about losing control but rather gaining greater control over your thoughts and behaviors allowing you to lead a happier more fulfilled life.

One of the many strengths of Clinical Hypnotherapy is the ability it has to address the underlying cause of your phobia, offering a unique opportunity to reframe your experiences and promote recovery.

During your hypnotherapy session, as a certified accredited and insured therapist, I’ll guide you into a state of deep relaxation where your subconscious mind becomes more receptive to suggestions. In the case of fears or phobias, I utilise various techniques including NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) which is a powerful tool in rewiring your subconscious mind’s response to the perceived threat, you learn how to re-evaluate your responses, replacing your fear with calmness and rationale.

Building Confidence and Empowerment:

Beyond alleviating your fear, Clinical Hypnotherapy also empowers you to take control of your emotions and responses in any area of your life. Through positive reinforcement during hypnosis, I can support you to build confidence and self belief in your ability to confront and cope calmly. This sense of empowerment and achievement often extends beyond the therapy room, equipping you with valuable tools and techniques to overcome challenges in your everyday life.

Addressing the cause and how it works:

During your FREE online confidential 45- minute initial consultation I’ll obtain sufficient information enabling me to understand where your phobia stems from, whether it’s a childhood trauma involving these animals or negative associations formed over time, how it impacts your life and what outcomes you would like to achieve.  There is also time for you to ask any questions you may have.  At the conclusion of your initial consultation, I’ll provide you with a FREE copy of my relaxation audio to listen to daily which will help you relax and support the process.

Afterwards, I’ll formulate your bespoke treatment plan which in the case of fears and phobias normally comprises of 4 sessions, with sessions 1 and 2 being 60 minutes in duration, allowing 90 minutes for sessions 3 and 4 due to the processes involved.


The fear of these animals are common yet distressing phobias that can significantly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, Clincial Hypnotherapy offers a gentle and effective method to overcoming your fears. By tapping into the power of your subconscious mind, Clinical Hypnotherapy helps reframe your perceptions, address underlying causes, and build confidence in facing your fears. So, if you find yourself dreading the lighter months and the sight of these animals, know that there is hope and that I, along with Clinical Hypnotherapy, will support you towards a life free from worry and fear.
