Harpaxophobia – Fear of being robbed

How it Works: Getting Over Harpaxophobia

It comes down to redirecting your unconscious mind. On the surface, you know your harpaxophobia is illogical. But it has persisted because your subconscious has attached the idea of being robbed to all those negative emotions.

How to Overcome Harpaxophobia:

Treatment & Cure

We don’t actually treat. Nor do we ┬ácure. You are the only one with the influence to change your perceptions. We simply walk you through the process that enables you to do so.

Harpaxophobia Risk Factors & Causes

Harpaxophobia is usually caused by an intense negative experience from your past. But your mind can also create that fear seemingly without basis. The key is digging down to the source and replacing negative associations with positive ones. Those at greatest risk include:

- People with a general tendency towards fear and anxiety

- People characterized as high strung

- People suffering from adrenal insufficiency

Symptoms of Harpaxophobia: Test & Diagnosis

We could try to further enhance our credibility with some complicated test, but it’s really pretty simple: If this fear is having a significant negative impact on your life, it’s time to do something about it.

Does the thought of being robbed make you nauseous? Does it trigger a dry mouth and clammy hands? Does your heart feel like it’s going to pound right out of your chest? Do your legs turn to rubber bands?

Harpaxophobia Drugs & Medication

We do not encourage the use of drugs and medication because we see them as a mask. They may help you deal with your harpaxophobia, but they do not actually help you overcome it.

No drug has ever been developed specifically for harpaxophobia, and none can ever cure the root cause, only suppress the symptoms. And with all the uncertainty surrounding potential side effects it is hard to justify popping a prescription as a healthy solution.
