Counselling for Phobias

Whether it is a fear of spiders or a fear of the dark, there are varying situations, places, feelings, objects or animals that can trigger an unpleasant sensation - an urge to prepare for or completely avoid the perceived danger. A fear is a completely natural human emotion, but in some people fears are more pronounced and will manifest as a phobia. A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear that develops when someone has an exaggerated sense of danger about a certain object or situation. They can be incredibly stressful to live with, and in severe cases can take a toll on a person's health, well-being and overall way of life. Living with a phobia means people are often in constant anguish about whether they may come into contact with what they are afraid of. This page will explore phobias in more detail, including the nature of simple and complex phobias, as well as highlighting the benefits of counselling for helping people to overcome their fears.

Fear of Photographs

Does the sight of folks with cameras at the ready make you want to run and hide? Having your picture taken is such a normal part of social life, especially in the age of the digital camera and the internet, that most people don't give it a thought. This can make you feel very 'out of it' if you are one of those who really can't stand the idea of being 'snapped'. Your friends are likely to look at you oddly if you object. And it is hard to explain that you have a fear of photographs. You might find it just as hard to explain it to yourself. Sensory simulation system for overcoming a fear of heights : DigInfo.
