What is Aquaphobia?
Aquaphobia is often mixed up with hydrophobia, however, hydrophobia is more specifically based on a symptom of when someone has contracted rabies as opposed to a general fear of water.
The word Aquaphobia comes from both Latin and Greek origins. 'Aqua' is Latin for water and 'phobos' is Greek for dread or fear.
If a child was simply never taught how to swim it can also create Aquaphobia in adulthood. The fear is then based on the unknown.
When Aquaphobia is based specifically on bigger bodies of water like lakes or the ocean, the fear is often linked with another closely related phobia, Bathophobia, the fear of depths. This phobia finds it terrifying to be in or on large, deep bodies of water, in fear that some malevolent unknown threat is lurking beneath that can cause harm. This also closely ties in with shark phobias (Galeophobia) as well.
Other symptoms also include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Feeling of choking
- Trembling and/or sweating
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
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.
