Coulrophobia – clown phobia and fear:
Do you have a clown phobia or fear of clowns (coulrophobia)?
With the recent craze for people to dress up as clowns, and particularly as ‘killer clowns’, what once may have been a fear that you could relatively comfortably avoid, may now have become something that is at the forefront of your mind.
If you watch or read the news or social media you can’t have failed to hear and see people dressed up as clowns. And with Halloween approaching, the killer clown craze from the States is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.
Fear of Public Speaking and Ending The Dread
Do you have a terror of public speaking? Does just the thought of public speaking fill you with dread?
The fear of public speaking can leave you anxious about possibly being asked to speak in front of others, whether that is speaking on a conference call, delivering a presentation or making a speech. In fact, fear of public speaking is often considered to be the most common fear out there.
And whilst you may be comfortable talking one on one or to a few people, once the numbers increase, so does the panic and worry.
You may have become an expert at getting out of public speaking, yet the threat of it looms large and sooner or later those excuses for getting out of it start to run out. Or maybe you’ve been forcing yourself through that draining anxiety, just wishing you could find a way to calmly and confidently speak, without it taking over your life beforehand.
So if you struggle with public speaking anxiety, what can you do about it to turn it into a more pleasant, even enjoyable, experience?
Fear of dentist and dental phobia:
Recently I had my annual check up at the dentist. Whilst I was there they told me how, earlier that day, they’d referred another person to me for help to overcome their fear of the dentist.
Judging by the number of people referred to me by dentists it’s suprising how many people are filled with fear and dread at the prospect of sitting in the dentist chair and opening their mouths – even for a check up, let alone for actual work.
So if you are struggling with dentist fear then read on for advice on how to overcome your fear.
