My name is Angie and I started Fear of Heights Phobia to share some of my experiences and cures for this debilitating phobia. To those of you who suffer from this phobia, also known as acrophobia, you know all too well how hard it is to overcome your fear of heights. My greatest asset in getting over my own fear was a simple, inexpensive, little 20 minute hypnosis session. If you’d like more information on this wonderful cure, please click the link below to see what worked so well for me:
Anyway, my fear of heights phobia started at a very young age. I bet I was only five or 6 years old when I really started to be aware of it. When playing with friends or family, I would get terrified whenever anyone would lift me up too high. When playing at the playground, I could barely go past the first couple of steps on slides, monkey bars, etc. At the time, I didn’t understand it at all, and pretty much just avoided any sort of heights as much as possible.
As I got a little older, the fear stayed with me, but I had a better understanding of it and by then had heard a lot regarding the fear of heights. It would still bother me to be up high, but I was able to handle it a little better than before. I still hated ladders and looking out windows of tall buildings. I still had a strong fear of flying and could never look over the edge of a cliff while hiking. So, just as I had done most of my life, I just tried to avoid these situations as much as possible.
By the time I hit my mid thirties, I decided to do a little more research on phobias and especially my fear of heights phobia. Reading about it and realizing there are hundreds of thousands of people who are affected by this in some manner or another made me feel a lot better about myself, and helped me realize I wasn’t alone.
I started researching the different ways people were able to overcome their fear of heights, and discovered about eighty percent of time, their cures involved some sort of hypnosis. Now, I’ve always been open to this sort of treatment, but never though of trying it for my own fear of heights phobia. I looked into some local hypnotherapists, but they were all very expensive and wanted to do multiple sessions. Needless to say, I had to rule that out as an option for me.
Finally, I came across a cool website that had pre-recorded hypnosis sessions at reasonable prices. I looked up fear of heights and was happily surprised they had a session just for that. Here’s the link if anyone is interested: Click Here For More Information! The price was very reasonable, so I figured it was worth a try and I ordered it! I’ve been using it off and on for a few weeks now, and it really has been a Godsend for me.
I handle heights much better now, and don’t get near as panicked when I do find myself in high places. I am still a little afraid of flying, but am confident that will pass too. I find that I have a lot more confidence now when I am in these situations because I am in control of the fear now instead of it controlling me. It has been very empowering for me and I’m really glad I found this little recording.
Well, like I said, I just wanted to share what has worked so well for me with my fear of heights phobia. I hope it will help others out just as much. As I continue to use this recording, I’ll post my progress on this site to let you all know how well it’s working. I Hope you all have a wonderful day!
