Aquaphobia Fear of Water

Aquaphobia or Hydrophobia is the irrational fear of water.

I do use the term hydrophobia in the title because some people mistakenly search for that which can lead some people to confuse the two and combine them.

Hydrophobia was a name given for rabies in the past. Hydrophobia is a term used in chemistry to describe chemical aversions of a molecule or part of a molecule to water. So I going to take it that you have a fear of water and its not related to rabies.

Aquaphobia is an irrational fear of water. But it can go from not getting in a boat or walking alongside water to washing your body and even drinking water.

As with all problems the root cause could come from many different experiences and may be common or pretty unique to you. But with so many people suffering from aquaphobia the fear of water you will find common denominators with some other suffers.

If you have a mild fear of water it may not really affect you, all you have to do is stay away from the sea and boats. Unless you work in an area where you have to be around water. If on the other hand you cant stand to be around running water, baths and even the thoughts of a cold glass of water it will effect you daily.

As you can see the this can be wide ranging and for some it started out small and now affect their health and actions daily.

In hypnotherapy we would look for the why, why you feel like this and desensitize or re-frame the events that caused you to feel this way originally.
