You can defeat claustrophobia with the help of self-hypnosis. Overcoming this fear is just like overcoming any other fear. You can feel less claustrophobic in any situation when you reprogram your mind to respond otherwise.Phobia stems from fear and your fear is a useful emotion that is designed to help you stay away from possibly harmful situations.
This inner alarm system can save your life so it is a very necessary response. However, your fear acknowledgments can go haywire, turning them into phobias.A phobia is problematic because it hinders your ability to live your life to its fullest. You may avoid many situations that do not pose any real threat. You realize that your fear is illogical but you don't think that you can overcome claustrophobia.
The obvious cruel trick that is being played is that usually after the Claustrophobia attack most people can look back at the situation and acknowledge that there was no real danger to be worried about. This tends to send a very confusing message to most people because they know prior to being in the situation that there is no reason for worry and they can look back after an event and acknowledge there was no reason to worry.
Once you understand (and accept) that your Claustrophobia Symptoms are all being controlled by your subconscious you can start to work on a Claustrophobia Cure.
