A person with Ornithophobia might be afraid of all birds or a particular bird or types of similar birds. For example, the bird phobia might only be based around pigeons, birds of prey, parrots, etc. A person who has this fear will avoid birds at all costs and could have a panic attack at even the sight of just a feather.

It can equally be learned from a parent or sibling who has Ornithophobia. Children learn very quickly and closely watch how the people around them react to different stimuli. If the people closest to them show that birds are something to be feared, a child will easily pick the phobia up.
Young children are also very vulnerable to developing fears through media and film. Birds portrayed as evil and dangerous in films like Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds can contribute to one developing Ornithophobia. Wildlife documentaries that show predatory or scavenging birds eating pray could also create the phobia in a young child.
Symptoms can include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Hot or cold flashes
- Chest pain
- Feeling of choking
- Inability to distinguish between reality and unreality
- Trembling and/or sweating
- Numbness or tingling sensation
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
Why You Should Seek Treatment:
Because of this, someone with Ornithophobia could become very limited in where they go and what they do. They might refuse to eat in open air restaurants no matter how lovely the day is, in fear a bird will try to eat their food. They may avoid going to the beach to avoid seagulls. They might deal with daily panic attacks just trying to get to and from work. Some people with an extreme case of Ornithophobia might become reclusive and never leave the house, thus developing another phobia like Agoraphobia. It is emotionally and physically exhausting dealing with a phobia like this and the quality of life is seriously lowered because of it.
Why See The Phobia Guru For Treatment:
Hypnotherapy is so effective with phobias because it tackles the underlying trigger of the phobia within the subconscious. Once a person has access to their subconscious they can eliminate their conditioned response to the stimulus. So instead of treating just the symptoms, hypnotherapy can heal the source for a lasting result. The best part about hypnotherapy and phobias is that often it only takes one session to completely get over the phobia so you do not have to spend a lot of money on continual treatment. The NHS also promotes hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for phobias.
