How to Stop OCD Thoughts
How Common is School Phobia?
A study in the US by Burke et al showed that 1.3% of teenagers aged 14-16 years and between 4.1 and 4.7% of children aged 7-11 years suffer from school phobia and that 5% of school-aged children are identified as ‘school refusers.’ A later study showed that Internationally there is a 2.4% overall prevalence rate. The average age for onset of school phobia is 7.5 years and for school phobia age 10.3 years.
Will My Child’s School Phobia continue into Adulthood?
The extended implications of school phobia can be far reaching. In the very long term, it can lead to anxiety and panic disorders in adulthood. Studies which have followed children who were successfully treated for school phobia and returned to school, have shown that some of them have long term impairment to their social skills and functioning, not to mention the detrimental effects to their education of being absent from school for prolonged periods.
All of the research suggests that much more effective treatment is required for school phobia to prevent problems in later life.
Can Children With School Phobia Be Cured?
It is obviously extremely important that school phobia is dealt with as early as possible. For this reason The Linden Method has a whole chapter dedicated to Child Anxiety which shows parents how to implement the Method with their children.
The Linden Method works on the root cause of anxiety disorders and has been proven to quickly and permanently cure school phobia. It has been used with equal success by children and adults alike.
Emetophobia (fear of vomiting)
Emetophobia – A fear of vomiting or of being around others who are vomiting. Many anxiety and panic attack sufferers, have a fear of vomiting known as Emetophobia (approximately 14% of our clients actually.) This is due, partly, to an anxiety reaction created by experiencing vomiting at some time in the past and partly to the nausea created by the diversion of moisture and the slowing down of the digestive process in the digestive tract during the flight or fight response. This cycle of ‘fear producing nausea – produces fear’ can spiral out of control.
Most anxiety sufferers with this inappropriate fear of vomiting don’t actually throw up, they just feel like they might. This is a horrible sensation and many of our clients have experienced this phobia for years before realizing how simply it can be cured.
It is important to recognize that emetophobia is an anxiety disorder symptom and not a separate condition. All phobias are symptoms of an anxiety disorder – because, if you weren’t frightened, you wouldn’t have the phobia, You shouldn’t be frightened of things that don’t pose any actual risk to you. The same is true of Emetophobia.
So how do you stop the cycle?
Simple – you defeat the anxiety disorder that causes the nausea and and therefore you stop the phobia, but you have to know how to stop the anxiety.
The dictionary definition of monophobia is: “An abnormal fear of being alone” Whilst this is a correct definition, it doesn’t feel that simple to sufferers. Monophobia sufferers not only fear being alone, they can also fear the thought of being alone or being away from a place or person that provides the perception of safety. Monophobia is caused by an underlying anxiety disorder and the sufferer can also experience high anxiety and panic attacks. Monophobia can be very disturbing and can cause the sufferer to greatly restrict their lifestyle and that of their relatives, friends or carers.
It is very important for monophobia sufferers to realize that they do not have to live such restricted lives and that the anxiety they experience can be eliminated quickly and permanently, regardless of what they may have heard from doctors or psychologists.
Monophobia is a symptom of an anxiety disorder and as such, can be very quickly eliminated. Most people that they have treated have had varying degrees of monophobia during their anxiety disorders, but what is true of every single person is that when we have helped them to eliminate their anxiety, their monophobia slips away silently and with haste.
I too had severe monophobia which caused crippling panic whenever I was left alone. It was damaging and frustrating, not to mention very frightening indeed.
Somniphobia (fear of sleeping or going to bed)
Do you fear going to bed or sleeping?
Do you get anxious before bedtime?
Do you have night time panic attacks or increased anxiety?
This is very common indeed!
In fact, more than 80% of Charles Linden’s clients report exactly the same fears about going to bed, sleeping, the resultant anxiety, night time panic attacks and the sensations and thoughts associated with this fear.
Somniphobia, as it is officially called, is a symptom of an anxiety disorder. Their clients very often report being frightened of not being conscious of the world around them during sleep, fearing that they might not wake up if something bad happens, if at all!
Many clients have feared having nighttime panic attacks, most anxiety disorder sufferers do experience these during their disorder.
Anxiety fuels this fear, inappropriate anxiety fuels all phobias. But what can be done to stop you from fearing sleep, to stop the night time anxiety and to allow you to sleep soundly and not fear bedtime? By reducing the benchmark anxiety level in your brain, which has become reset during anxiety disorders to a much higher ‘baseline’ level, you can eliminate all of the inappropriate anxiety, the symptoms of that anxiety and the fears accompanying those symptoms; including your fear of going to sleep.
