Fear of the Dark Hypnosis Script
Fear of the dark is common in children and to a lesser degree in adults. Nyctophobia is a pathological fear of the dark which is the Greek nyx for night and phobos fear. Researchers starting with Sigmund Freud attributed the fear of the dark to a deeper separation anxiety. This is more than a simple sharp shiver down the spice or uneasiness. Fear of the dark can take on abnormal and persistent symptoms that interfere with the individual's lifestyle.
Every time Louise turned off her son Zack's bedroom light and closed the door he started crying. He would call and call for her. Perhaps that sounds fairly normal. But when Louise went back into the room to comfort him she discovered Zack was so scared of being left alone in the dark, his palms were sweaty, heart was pounding, and he was short of breath. Her only way to keep the peace seemed to be leaving a light on. After a time Louise began to realise Zack's fears were beginning to affect not only Zack but the rest of the family as well.
The imagination exacerbates the fear of the dark. A jacket hanging over the post becomes a lurking threat. Nightmares contribute to the fear of the dark as well. The frightening dream events mean the child needs the reassurance of light if they should wake up.
Potential treatments for fear of the dark range from neuro-linguistic programming to reflexology and aromatherapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Hypnosis has the potential to truly help. That's why this fear of the dark hypnosis script by Hypnotic World is so valuable.
