Luckily for snake phobics in the UK, we don't have many venomous snakes! Nevertheless, we still have snake phobias, just like other civilised parts of the world. In places where poisonous and deadly snakes are common, a healthy respect and avoidance is considered quite normal.
At this well-developed level of fear, anything that suggests the shape, movement or behaviour of a snake triggers immediate terror, and an automatic 'flight, fight or freeze' response.
For many English and European residents, this phobia brings problems when they have to travel to places where snakes are more common, and they find themselves panicking at the thought of a threatening encounter. Often the thought alone runs and runs inside their heads, and they become truly phobic, unable to even look at a photo of a snake.
Few people there have a morbid dwelling on the thought of snake attacks, or an inappropriate phobic response on seeing pictures or films of snakes. They have a social and cultural conditioning that precludes this. In the UK, we have been oppositely conditioned by childhood experiences, cruel jokes, anxious parents, and scary films and stories.
At one time, we used to display a collection of photos of our former snake phobics holding snakes. Nowadays any private thanks and mementos we receive are kept filed away confidentially. But we still appreciate seeing these pictures when they arrive!
And then (no matter just how wealthy or famous they may be) clients begin to avoid travel and holidays, location work and tours, overseas contracts and engagements. Often limiting their exposure and career development.
Some are even invited or put forward for 'celebrity in the jungle' type shows and films, much to their horror. We have helped a small number of these overcome their morbid fears immediately and successfully (while still keeping a little natural caution!) and enabled many more to travel freely in more civilised parts of the world.
"There is absolutely no need for anyone
to suffer a phobia nowadays......"
