  • Have you ever been frightened of something, despite the fact that nothing was there? A phobia is regarded as an irrational fear, a sort of anxiety disorder where a person feels a sense of an ending dread about a potential situation that has not occurred. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  • It could be a fear of meeting someone in a dark alley, or going to a location that simply gives you the creeps. Regardless of what the fear is, or what you are afraid of, it is the irrational nature of this fear which is what defines it as a phobia. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  • Brief Overview of Phobias When a person has a phobia, it usually starts with being afraid of something, and this fear begins to control their life. They may actually reorganize their routines of the day so that they do not have to confront this person, place or thing. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  • Many people have these fears which could be of an animal, a person, or a situation that reminds them of something that occurred in the past. Now that you know what a phobia actually is, let's look at ways to handle these situations. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
  • Confronting Your Fears with Repetition The easiest way to deal with phobias is through repetition. An example of this would be having a fear of heights, and conquering it by gradually moving a little bit higher each day.

  • If you have a fear of dogs because you were once bitten, you could walk in the park and come close to the ones that you see. The more dogs that you encounter, the more you will begin to realize that your fear is irrational, based upon a situation that may have once occurred.

  • By confronting your fears little by little, gradually becoming less afraid, you can eventually deal with the fears that plague you, allowing you to become free from their control over your life. More info on: http://www.integratedhealthspecialists.com.au/stress-anxiety-phobias-panic-attacks/
