Phobia Therapy

A phobia is an irrational or extreme fear of a particular thing or situation that most people don't mind. It's more extreme than a regular fear of something, as it restricts or affects your life negatively.

With a phobic disorder, you'll go to great lengths to avoid that thing or situation. You might even plan your day or whereabouts to avoid it. Phobias are treatable, so reaching out for help can change this.
