Phobia is one of the main forms of anxiety.
A phobia is an irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things or people (105).
The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject (105).
You feel really frightened of something that is not actually dangerous and which most people do not find troublesome. The nearer you get to the thing that makes you anxious, the more anxious you get ... and so you tend to avoid it. Away from it you feel fine.
Common phobias include:
Agoraphobia - a fear of going where there are other people - which can stop you from leaving the house.
Social phobias - a fear of being with other people - which can make it hard to talk to other people (17).
Therapy can help you manage these thoughts and put them into perspective (124). Counselling, motivated relaxation training and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are recommended.
The best available Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
