Halloween and Bonfire Night are not good for phobics

Curated by


From big bangs and scary masks to huge fake spiders and massive flames, Halloween and Bonfire Night are frightening times for those of us who suffer from a variety of phobias . Dealing with phobias is not easy but hypnotherapists can offer valuable help and, in many cases, allow people to control or overcome their phobias and lead a normal life. The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) has therapists across the UK who can offer such help.



  • A therapist can help the sufferer identify the root cause of the phobia and enable individuals to react to the particular object or situation they once feared in a calmer manner when encountering it in the future.
  • Phonophobia, also called ligyrophobia or sonophobia, is an extraordinary fear of loud or explosive sounds.
  • It can range from a seemingly harmless thing like asymmetriphobia, which is all about asymmetric things to arachnaphobia (a fear of spiders) and nyctophobia (a fear of the dark or night time).
