Where Does Ancraophobia Come From?
Ancraophobia, just like most phobias, come from an subconscious 'overprotection' mechanism. The fear of wind is caused by the mind over-estimating the danger caused by wind, believing that wind presents an actual threat, where in reality it may not.
Ancraophobia can often caused by the 'thoughts' that a person has about things. These thoughts can quickly get caught up in a 'spiral', and when this happens it can bring about a lot of anxiety and stress for the person.
Can Ancraophobia Be Treated?
Yes, ancraophobia, just like any other phobia, can be treated. Ancraophobia responds well to interventions such as hypnotherapy, as well as a more cognitive approach.
This can be done as either self-help, or via one-to-one help with a therapist trained in helping with phobias such as this.
