Fear Of Clowns-Coulrophobia covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do about this condition.

Fear Of Clowns-Coulrophobia

Causes Of Coulrophobia:

Many believe the cause of coulrophobia is some early childhood traumatic event.  In my very early years, I had a serious reaction to my mother when she looked in on me in bed while wearing a facial mask treatment.  I don't know what caused those reactions in me.  This may have been the trigger for future events.  Some of the most mundane things can be very frightening in our very early years, say 2-7.  The actual incidents could be long forgotten, but still cause anxiety or phobia later in life. 

Signs And Symptoms Of Coulrophobia:

Coulrophobia is one of the top 10 most common phobias.  Symptoms can range from high anxiety to outright panic attacks around people in clown outfits or other bizarre attire and make-up...even Santa Claus.  I may have a minor case of coulrophobia because I've always been uncomfortable with clowns, heavily tattooed, and costumed people.  When I was very young, I was taken to visit Santa and, as the line shortened I became more and more anxious, until I finally broke out into a screaming fit.  No, my Mom didn't make me sit on Santa's lap, if that was even possible, given my condition.

Treatment Of Coulrophobia:

Treatment includes medications, hypnotherapy, and various therapies designed to have us face coulrophobia until we manage the situation more rationally.  Unless this phobia is extremely severe, it's probably a less intrusive approach to just avoid clowns and other triggers...particularly for children with this condition.

What You Can Do About Coulrophobia:

If is is necessary to confront this fear on principle (which I appreciate), do so gradually and very carefully.  Don't take the "full-emersion approach, but dip into the water one toe at a time."

Total Healing:

Mental Health conditions can be limiting and very painful.  There are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this for any problem, go to healing from God.
