Treatment for Phobias And Fears

Phobias (from the Greek Phobos or mortal fear) is defined as an ‘anxiety disorder’ where an object or situation is compulsively and irrationally avoided. Treatment of phobias differs for the age and experience of the sufferer. Common phobias can be specific (dog, spider, heights, deep water, flying, open spaces) or general like social phobia, which include anxiety around groups or others, (familiar or unfamiliar), or variations like incapacity to join in conversations, or use public toilets.
