Do you struggle with a blood phobia? If you do then just the thought of it or the mention of it may be enough to get you feeling anxious and fearful.
And that fear of blood may mean that certain films and TV programmes are off limits and there is no way you could even contemplate a blood test or giving blood!
As with any phobia, your mind has learnt that blood spells danger and so anything to do with it can trigger your fear response as your body automatically gets ready to take action to escape.
So if your mind has learnt the fear, how do you unlearn it?
When you experience the fear of a phobia, your body gets ready to take action, whether that’s to fight whatever it is or (most commonly) to run away to somewhere safer.
All the physical symptoms you experience are there for you to take that action – your heart rate increases, your breathing rate increases, you get hot, sweaty, shaky and so on.
Yet logically you know that blood itself can’t hurt you (after all you are full of the stuff), yet still you experience that fear….which makes it all the more frustrating.
Here’s what Sky 1’s Steve Miller had to say after I helped him end his blood phobia:

To end your blood phobia you need to unlearn the fear so you can feel calm, confident and in control around the mention of blood, around pictures and even so you could have a blood test or give blood if you wanted to.
