Interesting studies reviewing how fear and phobias may alter the perception of space around us.

Fear is a useful survival strategy; a response which alerts us of some form of threat. Life would be difficult to survive without fear. However, sometimes fear is exaggerated, incommoding or irrational, as in the case of phobias and panic attacks. This may make us feel unable to function. Phobias can be considered a maladaptation of the useful fear response.

Hypnotherapy proposes techniques based on behavioural, psicodinamic and cognitive behavioural psychology. These allow the analysis and re interpretation of our beliefs and the rehearsal of desired behaviour as well as of calm and confident states. Training in this way our subconscious mind, we practice to integrate those desired and benefitial beliefs and behaviour into our personality.
