Fear Of Darkness Phobia Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been googling “fear of darness” or “fear of the dark”, you’ve come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years, I have been helping both children and adults to overcome their fear of the dark.

Most people tend to laugh or be dismissive when they hear of a fear of the dark. However, if you suffer badly  from this fear, you’ll know that it is not just something you can “just get over”.

As many as one in every two children suffer from a fear of the dark at some stage, but luckily for most, they tend to grow out of it. For some, however, it can carry on into adulthood.

Also, you may have been fine your whole life but as you get older, especially if you live alone, this can be a fear that you only develop later in life.

In rare cases, people with very vivid imaginations can do somthing as simple as watching a scary movie and, for them, this could be enough to kick start this fear.

The great news is that hypnosis can help you to overcome this problem. If you’d like to find out more, click on the button below to make an enquiry.

The Fear Of Darkness Causes

A very obvious cause can be if a traumatic event happened during the night. As an example, maybe your house was broken into in the past and you’re left with a dread of it happening again

Researchers also suggest there may be a genetic link with our ancestors who lived in times before electricity was discovered. Dangerous animals roamed by night, such as lions and wolves, so darkness was regarded as very dangerous back then.

Fear of the dark is something that children suffer from more than adults, although it does happen in some adults. If you’d like to find out more about how I can help you overcome fear of the dark, click on the button below to arrange a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.

As a child I used to be terrified of the dark. My sister used to find it funny to try and scare me by making noises and banging things. At 32 years of age, I finally ended the fear with your help. Now I can get to sleep easily and never feel afraid.
