The fear of sudden loud noises is programmed from birth

Fear, or phobia of loud noises is the a basic fear that seems to be with us from birth.  Some people, though, learn an overblown  response to loud noises. They become terrified of sudden loud bangs such as fireworks, thunder, cars backfiring, balloons bursting and so forth.

All phobias are learned responses from earlier experiences. Despite what you may have heard, you don’t have to remember the original incident, or incidents to be helped.

What Will You Do To Help My Fear Of Loud Noises?

We utilise a full range of techniques to rid you of your fear, although we find that the NLP fast phobia techniques tend to work very quickly with most people.

It is simply a question of re-patterning, reprogramming and reconditioning the response. We work directly with the aim of sorting this problem for you in a single session. Occasionally it may take two sessions. Now and again what we do does not work. This is rare.

Fear of Fireworks

Fireworks can be fun, amazing and entertaining. Most countries have celebrations where fireworks are part of the deal. In the USA there is the 4th of July, in the UK there is November 5th where we celebrate parliament not being blown up hundreds of years ago. In the weeks running up to these kinds of events fireworks tend to start appearing in stores. For people who suffer from the fear of loud noises these are worrying, sometimes terrifying times.

Please feel free to make comments and or ask questions.

    So I have a fear of loud, unexpected noises and it’s extremely annoying >.> I can’t go out on Halloween cuz I get too scared, and today I went with my friend To go costume shopping but there was lots of little kid with balloons and I just couldn’t handle it so the trip was cut short. I hate this phobia, what do I do? I want to be able to go out and enjoy myself but I’m being held back with my phobia.

    Hey I’m usually really good with fireworks, I find them enjoyable! but this time was different, the first little ones where ok, but I felt plainly out-of-character and when he loudest one lit, I fell out of my chair in the car and began to slowly rock back and forth, and tried to hide I scarf, and when the finale came there where so many huge, terrifying fireworks that I couldn’t stop myself from sobbing. After the display, my heart felt all electrify and static and my breathing was upmost difficult to control. And with being a person that normally has no fears to the point of tears, I’m labelled to be attention seeking thus there is nobody I can really seek help out of. Does anybody know why this has suddenly come on? Its never happened before! Help!

      Hi Mia
      Well it sounds like the ‘shock’ of the big firework caused your adrenal glands to go into overdrive. This is how phobias can start though it may just have been a one-off. If you are still panicky at the thought of fireworks then get in touch with me or one of my associates close to you geographically. If you aren’t close to any of us then do a local search for someone experienced with this fear. Hope this helps. Steve Tromans

    Hi. My name is Rachael and I am 42 years old. I have a phobia of loud bangs and have had it all my life. I think I know where it comes from. Anyway I would like to be cured if possible as I am missing out on shows. Every time I go to see something on stage I worry if there will be bangs. I have now started avoiding going. Do you think you can help?

    I’m a 54 year old mother of 4 and grandma of 2. My fear of loud noises began as far back as 4 yrs old and I remember it. It was July 4th and me and my parents were standing on the beach watching the fireworks. I was terrified! That fear has never left me and it just doesn’t stop with fireworks. It’s EVERYTHING: popping balloons, thunder (and lightning), firecrackers, cars backfiring, gun shots etc. I even went with my grown children to the shooting range hoping I could force a cure – it was disastrous. I was sobbing and couldn’t move. Can this really be cured? Because living life like this has been brutal.

    I have a bad fear of thunder. Never really bothered me until my early 20’s after a particularly loud thunderstorm. I am on edge, agitated and sweaty. Never liked balloons n watching them been pumped up puts me on edge. Cars backfiring or beeping their horns suddenly all make me jump. Im not too bad with fireworks,its if they go off without me seeing them,again the making me jump thing.
