Has A Fear of Dogs Made You Prisoner In Your Own Home?

Has A Fear of Dogs Made You Feel Like A Prisoner In Your Own Home?

A fear of dogs really can make you feel like a prisoner in your own home.  The clinical terminology for this phobia is Cynophobia and it is one of the top 20 phobias in the world. Ironic when you consider that dogs are known as man’s best friend.  But for someone with a phobia of dogs, a dog is, psychologically, their worst enemy.

Your Free Weight Loss Game Plan at Barclays Bank, Streatham High Road

Why, you may ask, would you be getting a free weight loss consultation plan at a bank, of all places?

The Grass Becomes Greener When You Cure Hastenburaphobia

Today I met a lady who admitted to what some may consider a strange phobia.  A fear of grass.  It even has a name:  Hastenburaphobia.

My first question to her was “How does the fear of grass affect you on a day to day basis?”  A big part of having a phobia is the avoidance patterns of behaviour a person with a phobia becomes good at.  

So, in this lady’s case, she won’t walk down a path with grass on either side.  And she’ll take the Israelites Journey to do a detour and avoid stepping on grass.  A picnic in the park is also out of the question.

Why Should A Fear of Flying Ruin Your Next Holiday?

Is a fear of flying a no-brainer concern after so many recent air plane crashes?  Before Malaysian Airline Flight MH370, one in five people in the United Kingdom were thought to suffer from a fear of flying, which is also known as aviophobia.  It’s a pretty firm guess that this figure has risen as more seek help with this fear with hypnosis or hypnotherapy for fear of flying.

Is Ramadan Your Perfect Opportunity To Stop Smoking?

Is Ramadan your perfect opportunity to stop smoking for good, and feel good about it?  Not just during Ramadan?  A week into Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, (which this year started on the 28th of June, 2014), is observed by millions of Muslims (also known as Moslems) around the world. It is a time for purifying the body and the mind, during which observant Muslims fast and abstain from worldly pleasures.

NHS - Rebels With a Healthy Cause

The sale of so-called anonymous patients' data and NHS hospital closures are the topics for discussion on the next installment of my radio show, Get Healthy, on Croydon Radio.  Change is supposed to be embraced.  But some changes can present more challenges than solutions, as is the assertion of my guests on next Tuesday's Croydon Radio Get Healthy show.

She greeted me with that warmth and friendliness that we associate with Jimi.

After a cup of tea and a long chat, I...
