What Causes Dermatopathophobia?

Dermatopathophobia comes from an unconscious 'overprotection' mechanism.

Dermatopathophobia is usually caused by the mind over-protecting us from something that it believes at some level may be a genuine danger to us, believing that skin diseases presents an actual threat.

Dermatopathophobia is 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 Dermatopathophobia Be Treated?

Yes, dermatopathophobia can be treated. Dermatopathophobia 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.

Common questions

How does hypnotherapy work?

Put simply, hypnotherapy is where calming, relaxing words are used to get you into a nice, comfortable, relaxed state, where you can 'take on board' some helpful suggestions. It can be done as either self-help, or with the help of a therapist in a one-to-one setting.

Self-help options

Our self-help option is perfect for those people who want to do something at home, without visiting a therapist.  You can do it whenever you want, and take everything at your own pace. It only takes a few minutes a day.

One-to-one help

One-to-one hypnotherapy sessions are ideal if you feel that you need a little bit more individual help from a therapist.  You can meet with a hypnotherapist free of charge, and have a really good chat about how they can help you.
