Phobias

Are you suffering with a phobia? Do you feel restricted in your daily life? A phobia is more than a simple fear.

What is a Phobia?

Having a phobia is more than just being afraid of something, phobias are more pronounced than fears; it is a type of anxiety disorder. Phobias can have a serious impact on a person’s life. They can limit your daily activities and may cause symptoms such as severe anxiety and depression.

When a person experiences a phobia, they will arrange their life around avoiding the thing they are afraid of.  A person who has a social phobia, for example, will experience extreme and persistent anxiety when faced with social or performance related situations and will start to use avoidance tactics not to have to face the situation. There are many different types of phobias (backlink to types phobias) which can be divided into two main categories:

  • Simple phobias
  • Complex phobias

Please speak to your GP to identify which type you may have.
