What is Astraphobia?
The word Astraphobia is Greek in origin, 'astrapḗ' means "lightning" in Greek and 'phobia' means to dread or fear.
The most common reason is due to a traumatic event associated with a thunderstorm. This could be from flooding or a fire starting as a result. Someone close or even a pet may have gotten hurt or even died in such a storm causing a deep impression of fear and anxiety within the child's mind. The sound of the thunder and the visual symbol of the lighting then become a trigger for the fear and pain of the original traumatic event within the child's mind. This might continue to grow well into adulthood where any thunder storm can cause the person to go into mass panic.
Other reason can be because the person learned the fear from a parent or are of a naturally nervous disposition or have fragile mental health.
Symptoms can also include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Feeling of choking
- Trembling and/or sweating
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
Their fear can be based on the loud noise in itself or the fear of death by lightning, fire, or flooding.
Why I should Get Treated:
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.
