Fear of rape can be caused by an intense negative experience in the past, perhaps a situation or a man that frightened you. Fear of rape can be caused by a previous rape or attempted sexual assault but can also develop without those circumstances existing.
Fears, even the most intense fears, can be overcome using a combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT to gently re-train your mind to recognise that there are certain situations that used to trigger your fear where you no longer need to feel afraid.
Fear Of Rape – Causes
What causes a fear of rape? The most obvious answer is having been subjected to a previous rape or sexual assault, and the fear, in that case, is a perfectly understandable desire for safety. There are other possible answers too though – for instance if you are a highly sensitive person, or if you have an adrenal insufficiency, or even if you had a vivid dream of a threatening situation, or watched a particularly vivid movie.
Fear Of Rape – Symptoms
The symptoms are usually common to most fears and phobias – sweating, raised heartbeat, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, headache, nausea, etc. While these are common symptoms of fears and phobias, you should not assume or self-diagnose. Check with your GP first in order to rule out other possible medical causes for those symptoms.
Effective Treatment With Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy can help by regressing you to the traumatic event that caused the problem and helping you to resolve the fear associated with that event.
