Button Phobia

This is a surprisingly common phobia and may be triggered by;

  • A particular type or size of button
  • Whether the button is fixed or loose
  • The thought that they might inhale or swallow the button
  • The noise made by the button.

Day to day life becomes very difficult for sufferers, who not only avoid wearing clothes fastened in this way, but who may need to dress their families with clothing without buttons.

The phobia may extend to avoiding other people with button up clothing or to being unable to write or say the word “button.”

Phobias responds very well and can be removed using Analytical Hypnotherapy.

For children, young adults and the elderly, Suggestion Therapy may be used to control symptoms.
