The irrational fear of crickets and grasshoppers and other insects in general is called entomophobia or insectophobia. Orthopterophobia refers to the specific phobia or fear of crickets and grasshoppers.
As with other phobias the fear of crickets and grasshoppers may consist of any or all of the following criteria:
- the persistent fear of an object or situation. In this case crickets and grasshoppers.
- exposure to the feared insect provokes an immediate anxiety response.
- adult sufferers recognize that the fear is excessive, unreasonable or irrational (this is not always the case with children).
- exposure to insects is most often avoided altogether, or is endured with fear and dread.
- the fear interferes significantly with daily activities (social, familial, occupational, etc.) including, in some extreme cases, leaving the home.
- symptoms last for at least six months, often commencing in childhood.
- anxiety, panic attacks or avoidance cannot be accounted for by another mental disorder.
- shortness of breath,
- rapid shallow breathing,
- irregular heartbeat,
- excessive sweating,
- dry mouth,
- inability to articulate words or sentences,
- feeling to run-away
- feeling faint, pallor, tinnitus, panic attacks
The feelings of dread are very real for the sufferer because the unconscious mind has activated an instinctive fear reaction. The reaction is either ‘stand (or freeze) and fight’ or ‘flight’ *run away).
The old out-dated treatment for phobias was called ‘desensitisation’. It involved exposing the sufferer to their fear over and over again. This most often caused abreactions — a type of catharsis.
Abreactions are ‘the expression and consequent release of a previously repressed emotion, achieved through reliving the experience that caused it’. Therefore, pre-recorded MP3 download hypnotherapy products incorporating age regression are usually impractical. At worst abreactions can re-tramatize a client if mis-managed. Hypnosis Downloads found on the Internet are usually nothing more than hypnotic inductions followed by positive affirmations. They are not ‘therapies’ at all.
While this approach is time-consuming, expensive, and perhaps traumatic, some psychologists still persist in using this antiquated therapy approach today.
Sigmund Freud and Josef Breuer used hypnosis to assist patients to recall and relive traumatic experiences from their past which had been repressed by the unconscious for protection. Freud then abandoned this therapy approach. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung expressed interest in abreactions as a possible way to purge trauma, but later decided it had serious limitations. Science fiction writer and founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard had observed abreactive therapy in a Navy hospital. He then wrote about it in his book Dianetics, claiming it as his own invention. Truth is, it had fallen out of favour long before he picked it up. Some psychologists are experimenting with technology, such as VR goggles, to use ‘cyber desensitisation’ which still persists in causing abreactions.

Some medications can be used to treat the anxiety but fail to address the presenting problem (ultimately it never goes away – stop the medication and it returns). Anxiety can be temporarily treated with drugs such as the commonly prescribed benzodiazepines, which include Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam). The problem with drug interventions are the possible side effects – including drowsiness and addiction. The medication approach is just a ‘coping mechanism’ rather than ‘a remedy’.

The symptoms of a phobia (which may include; extreme anxiety, dread and anything associated with panic such as shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, inability to articulate words or sentences and shaking) are very real for the sufferer, because the unconscious mind has activated the instinctive fear reaction, as a survival reaction.
Meanwhile the logical and analytical, executive conscious part of the mind knows that almost all dogs love humans. Some can be harmful because they have been trained as guard dogs. But they are a minority, and should be on a chain or under the control of their handler.
Our deep unconscious mind is supposed to seek out threats and assess the level of danger to protect us. Sometimes it thinks the level of threat and danger is worse than it is in reality. If the irrational fear or phobia results in a panic attack, it is the panic attack which is the real threat. The phobic reaction has failed its purpose because it is not protecting at all. It is the danger because the sufferer cannot focus and think clearly.

He has successfully used this therapy approach with thousands of clients for almost 25 years.
Because the cricket and grasshopper phobia originated as a result of some traumatic encounter with these insects, a skilled hypnotherapist will almost always use an age regression technique to guide the deep unconscious to revisit the past event where the presenting problem was established. There the skilled therapist can guide the unconscious to ‘resolve’ the problem at it’s source. This is usually only possible in one-on-one consultations, because abreactions (Click here) can either ‘heal’ or ‘harm’. They need to be carefully managed by a suitably qualified and experienced therapist.
