PHOBIAS Treatment

PHOBIAS Treatment

Phobia is a dread of a certain object, place or a situation, and the fear of losing control in the phobic situation. It is considered irrational because the objects, place or situation usually is not threatening to others.

Since the trigger for the physical symptoms is the thoughts that precede it, try to shift the negative thoughts to something’s positive about the situation.

Take a chance to expose yourself to thing you fear a little at a time and give yourself the opportunity to learn to learn that thing you fear really cannot harm you.

  • When you feel a panic attack coming on, do something that you can manage, like taking deep breaths, talking out loud or saying the multiplication tables.
  • Label your fear on a scale of zero to ten. Knowing what increases and decreases your fear may help you to control it.
  • When you do function through your phobia, give yourself lavish praise you deserve it.
  • Avoid stimulants such as coffee, tea, cola drinks and chocolate.
  • Tensing and relaxing major muscles will aid you in burning up some of the adrenaline you have produced with the phobic attack.
