Overcoming Phobias

Is your fear or phobia preventing you from living life to the fullest?

Phobias are extremely common, it is estimated that in the UK 10 million people have phobias. A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Simple phobias such as fear of going to the dentist , usually start during early childhood, often between the ages of four and eight.


A phobia can cause anxiety and stress and in severe cases a panic attack. There are many potential physical and psychological symptoms such as:

  • Sudden intense fear
  • Sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Chest pain
  • Dry mouth
  • Trouble breathing
  • Not being able to control your thoughts

For many people with a phobia the coping strategy is to simply avoid whatever it is they fear, example going on holiday abroad because of a fear of flying or walking in nature because of a fear of spiders.
