In brief: Good advice given
We are all terrified of death at one stage or another in our lives, less now for me than before.
Extreme fear means you are not functioning well in your life. Is it death you fear or living, is life stressed? Life can be terrifying too.

In brief: PSYCHOTHERAPY
I suggest psychotherapy to find the cause of the extreme fear. This could be several different things, and hypnosis as a blanket treatment seems inadequate - like having an infection and putting anesthitic on a painful lesion without knowing the cause.

In brief: Hypnosis can help
Hypnosis can be very helpful in patients with phobias.
Well it is not unreasonable to fear death, or heights, or spiders, or snakes but when the fear is out of proporption to the threat, it serves no good purpose. Hypnosis is one of the most effective tools for dealing with such problems and there are many approaches as to how to use the tool.
