Urophobia

Fear of urine or urinating

Sometimes referred to as bashful bladder syndrome.

Effects

Some people, when confronted with their fear of urination and public toilets, may feel uncomfortable, nauseated or begin to perspire. Others can be so severely compromised by this phobia, that they experience anxiety and/or panic attacks.

Treatment

Hypnotherapy helps to reprogram your subconscious "programs" that may be part of your fear. When these programs are "de-bugged" the symptoms of Urophobia often are minimized. However, some people don't like the feeling of loss of control in allowing someone else to play with their personal "software". Also there is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) NLP is basically the study and practice of how we create our reality. From the NLP viewpoint, a phobia is the result of your programs or "constructs" that you have created that don't work very well. With NLP, these constructs are revealed and "re-programmed" so that the Urophobia is minimized and often eliminated.
