Phobias are irrational and debilitating fears of specific things, feelings or situations. They are a form of anxiety disorder that can affect anyone at any age and from any social background.
Treatment is not usually seeked if the trigger of the fear can be easily avoided without affecting quality of life. However, this might not be always possible and chances are that if you are reading this page you or a loved one might be suffering because of specific phobias.
Avoiding the object of your fear, especially when this means to severely limit the way you live, will only have the effect of making the situation worse. Your fear and anxiety will constantly increase until spinning out of control, possibly leading to panic attacks, if you don’t stop and look at what lies behind it.
