Specific Fears and Phobias

It is completely normal to not particularly like creepy crawlies, dentists or needles. However, the fear some people have is excessive and can lead them to avoid beneficial life activities.

Common fears and phobias can include spiders, snakes, dogs, insects, dentists, injections, blood, water, heights, storms, driving, planes, trains, bridges or tunnels and enclosed spaces, elevators, and escalators.

Psychological therapy for Specific Phobia will help you challenge the thoughts that occur when you are presented with your phobic object or situation; manage the symptoms of anxiety that occur and gradually become more and more comfortable around your phobic object or situation.
