Treating Anemophobia Ending Fear of the Wind Fear of Drafts





Though most often called anemophobia, fear of the wind or of drafts is also sometimes called ancraophobia

Regardless of the name used, this all too little-recognized fear can be really incapacitating for those who suffer from it.

Often this phobia simply becomes worse as time passes and, left untreated, it can significantly impact on the person's quality of life.

Indeed, it can severely restrict so many of the normal activities that most people simply take for granted.

Not only can this phobia produce fear of the outdoors and of open windows, where wind and drafts might usually be expected to occur, but it can also produce really intense feelings of anxiety in apparently unrelated situations such as when passing a functioning hand dryer in a public toilet or when seated in an airplane with the overhead air vents blowing.

Though each person experiencing anemophobia does so in their own way, generally speaking the symptoms of this phobia are similar to those of other anxiety disorders.

These symptoms may include rapid breathing and shortness of breath, dry mouth, increased heartbeat, feelings of nausea and dread.

In people with severe anemophobia, anxiety can so easily turn into panic, thereby producing what is commonly referred to as a 'full blown panic attack'.

But nobody was born with this fear. For it to be activated, it first has to be acquired.

In truth, fear of the wind can almost always be traced back to a negative experience in the person's past - which may or may not be recalled by the conscious mind - and which has been 'imprinted' on the subconscious mind.

Most often the person experiencing this phobia has found themself in a situation where the wind or draft has been blowing and where they felt real fear.

This specific experience has then become twinned or linked with all wind or gusts of air in what is known as a generalized conditioned response.

Usually, the person experiencing this anxiety disorder knows only too well that it is illogical and irrational, but that does precious little to help.

The medical response is all too often to prescribe anti-anxiety medication or to recommend a course of cognitive behavioural therapy in an attempt to control the symptoms.

This however, is a little like asking someone to live their life with an elephant in the living room. How much better it would be to simply evict the elephant!

Because this fear springs from the individual's subconscious, it is there that we must look for its remedy.

And this is where modern advanced hypnotherapy can be of tremendous help and assistance.

Through the correct application of modern advanced hypnotherapy, the skilled therapist can reach down into the subconcious mind and uncover those beliefs that are causing and sustaining this fear.

Once accomplished, those beliefs can be corrected and replaced with realistic ones, so that the person is freed to resume their life in a normal manner - free of the terrible anxiety with which they have struggled for so long.

There is no real need to continue to suffer from this incapacitating and frustrating fear.

If you or someone you care about is experiencing anemophobia, ancraophobia, fear of the wind or fear of drafts, do not despair. Help is available.

Seek out an experienced and fully qualified advanced transformational hypnotherapist who has experience in successfully treating this issue and free yourself from the anxiety and fear of anemophobia once and for all.

You'll be really glad you did!

Such experiences may have been undergone by the individual him or herself - often, but by no means always, in childhood. Or it may have been a response to another person's phobic...
