Whether you are enjoying a nice candle lit dinner or out camping, all it takes is the simple act of lighting a match.
For others with pyrophobia, like Rebecca Torres, the simple act of lighting a match would stir feelings of fear and anxiety. Rebecca's pyrophobia was so extreme that the thought of sitting near an open fire or even just seeing the act of striking a match was frightening.
Rebecca had tried all types of therapies to eliminate her fear of fire. It was not until she tried hypnotherapy that she was able to successfully overcome her fear. She is now able to enjoy fireworks and bonfires with her friends and family.
