How Can This Therapy Help Me?

We all experience fear and worry, to a degree. However, phobias can cause wide-reaching difficulties.

Counselling treatment for a phobia involves working through a therapy programme to control the fear.

Why Should You Consider Seeking Therapy?

Phobia is an anxiety disorder. It is characterised by an extreme or irrational fear of an animal, object, place or situation and is very common. Phobias are more than simple fears, however; they can completely dominate the life of an individual who reorganises their whole life around avoiding the thing they are afraid of.

The very thought of coming into contact with the thing in question or even seeing it on television, will lead to intense feelings of anxiety and can lead to the individual suffering from panic attacks. In more complex phobias such as agoraphobia (fear of open spaces and public places) and social phobias the individual may find it very difficult to lead a normal life, as these situations are not easily avoided.

Further, all phobias, particularly complex phobias such as agoraphobia, can limit your daily activities and can lead to severe anxiety and depression.

Counselling can be a highly effective way of treating phobias. A combination of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy techniques have been shown to reduce the heightened and disabling fear associated with phobias. By working through your fear in a structured and individualised fashion, you will begin to redefine and reframe the problem in question, gradually regaining your freedom.
