Fear of Small Spaces?

claustrophobia hypnosis in ealing

If you are claustrophobic you experience a significant amount of stress pertaining to the fear of enclosed, small spaces; sometimes you may also feel trapped without having anyway to escape.

You may experience claustrophobia on various levels and different people feel the anxiety in different ways. You may not feel comfortable in confined or small places. Some individuals experience panic and anxiety even at the idea about of being in a small space they believe will cause them to feel claustrophobic.

Fear of small spaces is a common phobia and at its most severe it is able to ruin someone’s life. The amount of circumstances in everyday life which can activate the issue is huge.

Do You Fear Small Spaces?

Do you avoid airplanes, lifts, or experience claustrophobia in crowds of people, maybe even if you get a hug or when dressing in tight clothing?  Does your claustrophobia mean  your happiness and enjoyment of life is lower because of your fear of being enclosed?

Perhaps an unfavourable experience happen to you when you were in a small, confined space? Maybe even something you now feel is trivial. Unfortunately, after the first experience, your unconscious mind recalls the feeling of the unfavourable event. so now you might find that you repeat your fear of small spaces whenever your mind perceives you are in a similar circumstance and the intensity can increase each time, as the habitual behaviours become ingrained.  So you may now fear the fear of small spaces or situations before they have even happened.

Are you ready to free yourself from your fear of small spaces, not just for yourself but also for your family? Children are often conscious of parental behaviour, and phobias can be frequently passed on from parent to child.


I booked a session with Jo because my claustrophobia was getting worse and giving me a 'knot' of anxiety in my stomach that I struggled with on a daily basis. After my initial session with her, I felt so much better and that knot disappeared. On a motorbike trip, the next week I had a panic attack on the motorway - something that had never happened before. I used the techniques that Jo taught me and was able to manage my anxiety and get through the journey. In preparation for my return journey on the motorbike, I had another session with Jo specifically focusing on my journey home. It was superb. I was able to truly enjoy the 5 hour journey with no hint of anxiety and i'm excited about future travels on the bike. Highly recommend.
