Pittakionophobia End Fear of Stickers with Hypnotherapy





The fear of stickers is a phobia that handicaps countless people all over the world

As with all phobias, it is classified as an anxiety disorder.

Simply put, those with this particular phobia experience varying degrees of anxiety when faced with stickers or sticky labels - whether those stickers are on fruit such as apples, bananas or kiwis, on plastic items, household appliances or on clothing, it makes little difference.

This phobia can cause even the strongest to quake with fear.

Perhaps the main reason that this particular phobia is so little acknowledged is because individuals suffering from this irrational fear have often developed a sense of abnormality or shame, wrongly believing that only they have this particular issue.

Because of this, people who are sticker phobic often feel a bit foolish and easily become reluctant to discuss it with others, so it remains hidden.

In fact, in the whole of my clinical practice I have treated only a couple of individuals for this specific phobia. Both individuals were existing clients who had been successfully treated for other issues and who casually disclosed that they also had a phobia of stickers.

Once disclosed, however, it is a relatively simple procedure to effectively and permanently remove this phobia.

The real difficulty is that the majority of those experiencing this phobia are unaware that effective and rapid treatment is available. The actual symptoms of a phobia of stickers are very similar to those of phobias in general: increased heart rate, palpitations, dry mouth, shortness of breath and even feelings of dizziness or nausea when exposed to the rationally benign stimulus of stickers or sticky labels.

So hidden is this phobia that currently there appears to be no commonly accepted name for the fear of stickers or of sticky labels. It simply does not currently appear on any phobia list.

However, I have coined a neologism - or new word - for this phobia, based on correct linguistic rules, which I suggest here.

The word 'phobia' comes from the Greek word meaning 'fear' and the rule is that any suffix attached to it should also be of Greek origin. (Though some phobia names contain suffixes derived from Latin, this is linguistically incorrect and has been brought about simply because the doctors who coined the name of the phobia were more familiar with Latin than they were with Greek!)

The value of having a correct name for the irrational fear of stickers and of sticky labels is that those suffering from this phobia may well find real relief in discovering that there is indeed a name for their secret fear and so may feel less abnormal and unique.

Being able to attach a proper name to any condition that we find disturbing is an important step in becoming empowered to deal with it.

The name I offer is 'pittakionophobia'.

This may feel like a bit of a mouthful, but in fact it's not. It is simply pronounced: pit-ak-ion-ophobia.

The Greek word for label is 'pittakion' and therefore, combined with 'phobia', pittakionophobia is the irrational fear of stickers or of labels.

Causes of Pittakionophobia - Fear of Stickers

The actual causes of pittakionophobia almost always lie in the individual's past.

Because of a previous experience, the person's subconscious has connected stickers or sticky labels with anxiety and danger.

Most often, this has happened in childhood or in the early years of adolescence, though in some cases it may have occurred later in life.

This kind of experience may well have happened in a direct manner, as a result of an upsetting experience involving a sticker or sticky label - having one attached to the body, for instance - or even indirectly as a result of another person's fearful experience that was observed by the person who would then go on to develop the phobia. Treatment of Sticker Phobia

The good news is that real and effective relief is available.

Working with an experienced and fully trained transformational hypnotherapist, it is possible to reach down and disclose the origin of this - or any other - phobia.

This accomplished, the faulty belief can simply be neutralized and replaced with the proper belief - that stickers and sticky labels really do not pose any real danger or threat.

In its place we can establish feelings of calm and relaxation when encountering or thinking about stickers or sticky labels, completely eliminating pittakionophobia.

The simple fact is that you were not born with this phobia and you do not have to continue to live your life around this fear.

If you - or someone you care about - are afraid of stickers; if you suffer from the fear of stickers or are afraid of sticky labels then there really is something you can do about it.

With the expert use of advanced hypnotherapy you can be freed from the terrible fear of stickers - pittakionophobia - and put an end to that sticker fear for good.

Consult with a fully trained professional advanced transformational hypnotherapist who has experience in dealing with this and other phobias and begin the liberating process of freeing yourself from the unnecessary fear of stickers or the fear of sticky labels - pittakionophobia - now.

You can swiftly and easily leave your sticker phobia behind you - and you will be tremendously pleased that you did!

Hypnotherapy Help for Skin Problems Skin Conditions and Skin Health
Our skin is our largest organ. It is also the most visible. It is the boundary, the interface between our physical self and all that is beyond that self. Because of this, the skin is also one of the main areas - together with the digestive system - that an emotional call for help is registered. In fact, though skin problems and skin conditions may indeed have a physical origin, they also very often have a distinct psychological component too. Eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus or itching,...
