Fear of dogs hypnosis London
During a hypnotherapy session, I will guide you into a state of deep relaxation, where we can access your subconscious mind more easily. As a hypnotherapist, I aim to work with you to identify the root cause of the fear, which could be a traumatic experience with a dog or negative social conditioning.
Once the root cause of the phobia has been identified, I will use a variety of techniques to help you reframe thoughts and emotions surrounding dogs. Fear of dogs hypnosis can include visualisation exercises, positive affirmations, and desensitisation techniques.
By way of example, with a client recently, I guided them through a visualisation exercise where they imagined themselves in a calm and relaxed state while interacting with a friendly and well-behaved dog. Then by repeatedly exposing a person to positive images and associations with dogs, you can begin to change your subconscious response to dogs and overcome this fear.
Why do people have a fear of dogs?
There are several theories as to why some people may develop a fear of dogs, including:
Negative Experience or Trauma – One of the most common reasons people develop a fear of dogs is due to a negative experience or trauma with a dog. This can include being bitten or attacked by a dog, being chased or threatened by a dog, or witnessing someone else being attacked by a dog. This can create a strong association between dogs and fear, leading to a phobia.
Social Conditioning – Another reason people may develop a fear of dogs is through social conditioning. This can occur when a person is exposed to negative messages or stereotypes about dogs from family, friends, or the media. For example, if a person is repeatedly told that all dogs are dangerous, aggressive, or unpredictable, they may develop a fear of dogs as a result.
Genetic Predisposition – Some researchers believe that a person’s genetics may play a role in their fear of dogs. Specifically, they suggest that certain individuals may be more prone to developing phobias due to genetic factors that influence the brain’s response to fear and anxiety.
Lack of Exposure – Finally, some people may develop a fear of dogs simply because they have had little or no exposure to them. This can be especially true for individuals who live in urban areas or who come from cultures where dogs are not commonly kept as pets. Without exposure to dogs, a person may be more likely to view them as unfamiliar or unpredictable, which can lead to fear and anxiety.
Though here are several theories as to why some people may develop a fear or phobia of dogs, fear of dogs hypnosis will be effective no matter the cause. So even if your phobia is from negative experiences or trauma or social conditioning, for example, we can still reduce it using hypnosis. It is, of course, important to note that each person’s individual experience with fear or anxiety is unique, and there may be additional factors that contribute to their fear of dogs.

Hypnosis for phobias
As well as a phobia of dogs, hypnotherapy is a powerful tool for overcoming a wide range of fears and phobias. I use hypnosis to help people with agoraphobia, claustrophobia, and specific phobias like spiders or insects. The hypnotherapy techniques I use help to remove the heightened emotions around the source of the phobia and allow you to experience it in a calmer and more rational way.
