Help for Your Fear of Bridges

Bridge Phobia Will Disappear With NLP and Hypnosis

Does the idea of crossing a bridge make you break out into a cold sweat? NLP and hypnosis could be just what you are looking for!

The proper name for bridge phobia, or fear of bridges is gephyrophobia, a Greek word that is quite a mouthful to pronounce, and can also be hard to remember. One thing that you should know about this particular phobia is that more people suffer with it than you would think, and it has an effect on the life of many people all around the world.

What is the phobia of bridges?

It is very difficult to go anywhere without having to use or see a bridge. You have to go under it or over it to get to where you're going. So, it's easy to see how the people who have bridge phobia feel as if they are trapped and restricted at home. Their fear of bridges might go along with a fear of heights, or claustrophobia, but most of the time the fear is specifically about bridges.

When does the fear of bridges happen?

The fearful response that someone who suffers from this phobia only happens when the person thinks about crossing a bridge, or actually must cross a bridge, no matter what kind it is. People who do not have this phobia may try to reassure the person who does, and tell them that the bridge is perfectly fine, and there is nothing to worry about. But, it does no good, as the sense of danger is very real to the sufferer of the bridge phobia. This is one reason why so many people who have this phobia try to hide it from other people; they are afraid of being embarrassed or laughed at about it.   

'What causes my fear of bridges?'

Bridge phobia usually shows itself as a fear of the bridge falling apart while on it, or a fear of falling or jumping off the bridge. These thought patterns can be triggered by scary or traumatic experiences you have had at some point of your life, perhaps even in childhood. Your fear of bridges was formed in your subconscious mind when it somehow connected the word bridge with something dangerous happening. This formed a thought pattern that is automatic, and pops up almost instantly every time you see a bridge.

The best way that you can do away with your bridge phobia is to identify the thought patterns in your subconscious that always bring on the fear of bridges response. Then, you will retrain your mind to use a new, different and more positive thought pattern instead of the old scared and negative thought pattern. NLP and hypnosis are the best choice to help you do this. These techniques allow you to get into both your subconscious and your conscious mind, and unlock the inner resources that will help you to switch thought patterns to easily overcome your bridge phobia.
