What do clowns, spiders, pigeons, driving, flying and public speaking have in common? For a lot of people, they are terrifying and induce completely irrational fears.
Fears and phobias are a form of anxiety so they can be treated and overcome in a number of ways. Some in as little as one session, some may take a longer time to gain control over. Imagine walking down the street and facing your nemesis. A pigeon. And instead of wanting to run for cover, you can stare it down without panicking and walk straight past. Imagine that feeling of liberation and freedom.
When somebody holds an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about an object, person or situation, we call it a phobia. Phobias are more pronounced than fears and severe phobias can cause sufferers to change their entire life. Avoiding certain situations or places or restricting day-to-day activities can cause a lot of distress. It’s no way to live.
