Mama June is ready to face her fear of mayonnaise – sort of.

In a clip from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo the 33-year-old decides to see a hypnotherapist about her lifelong phobia, but she doesn’t seem to understand what the treatment entails.

“Hypnosis works supposedly by somebody getting into your mind and getting you relaxed or whatever,” she says, before warning, “I mean, if this hypnotist brings out a shrunken head, I mean, if she tries to put, like, some, like, spell on me, I’m outta here.”

Once inside the office she explains her problem with mayonnaise.

“When I was, like, growing up my babysitter kinda, like, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, mayonnaise sandwich kinda thing. And it was like … ” she grimaces.

“Even a jar and it’s closed on me, that’s like bleurgh,” she says, making a gagging sound.

“Close your eyes and I want you to think of mayonnaise,” the hypnotist tells her with a straight face as she tries to take the unwilling patient back to her earliest memory of the creamy condiment.

But as you can see in the clip, Mama June has trouble going along with the treatment.

Tune in for the season 3 finale on Thursday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
