Phobias Articles

Phobia means “fear.” However, a phobia is an extreme version of a fear where the person who is “phobic” is unrealistically terrified of something extremely specific. For example, arachnophobia is the fear of spiders. Someone who is afraid of spiders might be afraid of these creatures attacking them in their sleep and might not be able to stop thinking about this. Someone who is afraid of heights might be afraid of suddenly falling off a building for example or flying on an airplane. People are afraid of all sorts of things, but a phobia develops when the person is extremely afraid to the point where they have difficulty functioning.

The articles in this section will focus on how fear can negatively impact our lives and make it hard to live a functional life. We will uncover specific techniques to help people (like you) learn to face their fears and become healthier.


Don’t let fear hold you back. Find an online therapist who can help you face what you are afraid of. You may be afraid to make that initial step and get help, but remember that all you have to do is take that first step and send a message to someone who is listening and ready to help you.
