Nyctophobia is an extreme fear of the dark or night that has an adverse impact on your daily life. It can cause anxiety and depression. 

It often origins in childhood and roots in not being able to see what is around them.

Some fear is normal, when it starts to impact daily life and disturbs your sleep, you might need some professional help.

Physical symptoms of nyctophobia include:

  • trouble breathing
  • racing heart rate
  • chest tightness or pain
  • shaking, trembling, or tingling sensations
  • feeling light-headed or dizzy
  • upset stomach
  • hot or cold flashes
  • sweating

Emotional symptoms of nyctophobia include:

  • overwhelming feelings of anxiety or panic
  • an intense need to escape
  • detachment from self
  • losing control or feeling crazy
  • feeling like you may die 
  • feeling out of control

Fear of dark starts in childhood, and it is related to stories and images about ghosts, monsters, strange noises that led to fear of sleeping alone. Most children simply outgrow this phase, but some might develop nyctophobia and insomnia later. 

How can hypnotherapy help with nyctophobia?

When nyctophobia stops you from getting enough sleep, it can affect your overall health and lead to sleep disorders like insomnia. However, hypnotherapy can help. 

We use exposure therapy in hypnosis, combined with relaxation to help you relax and face your fears. 

Whilst you are in a deeply relaxed state, we confront your fears repeatedly until being in the dark no longer triggers anxiety. Furthermore, we can replace the anxious thoughts with more positive or realistic thoughts.

Hypnotherapy teaches you relaxation techniques like deep breathing and exercise so you can manage the stress and physical symptoms of your phobia.

Call us for help if:

  • your fear of dark makes you feel extreme anxiety or panic
  • your fear is excessive
  • you avoid certain situations because of your fear, and it affects your daily life 
  • you’ve noticed these feelings for at least 6 months

Don`t let your fear control your life!

Help is here for you.
