Social Phobias Fears

When we learn all about social phobias it helps to understand how many people suffer from them and why. All phobias are a fear of something.

There are many instances especially using hypnotherapy where phobias can be easily eradicated. It just takes a little bit of strength of mind to pick up the phone and ask for help.

A Brief List Of Phobias:

  • Agliophobia is the fear of pain.
  • Acrophobia is the fear of heights.
  • Aviophobia is the fear of flying.
  • Dentophobia is a dental phobia.
  • Phobophobia is the phobia of phobias.
  • Phronemophobia is the fear of thinking.
  • Pediculophobia is the fear of lice.
  • Peniaphobia is the fear of poverty.
  • Botanophobia is the fear of plants.
  • Cacophobia is the fear of ugliness.

 Strange Phobias:

  • Bolshephobia is the fear of Bolsheviks.
  • Carthisophobia is the fear of sitting down.
  • Clinophobia is the fear of going to bed at night.
  • Consecotaleophobia is the fear of chopsticks.
  • Dipsophobia is the fear of drinking.
  • Epistemophobia is the fear of knowledge.

As you can clearly see, there is a phobia for virtually everything, including the sun. Vertigo is a very common symptom when someone experiences an anxiety attack, panic attack or other symptoms when confronted with a phobia.

Social anxiety phobias are also very common, but are more commonly diagnosed as mental health issues. These phobias are often treated by a qualified psychologist with medication and/or therapeutic sessions. Many anxiety disorders often stem from phobias. The fear raises your heartbeat and causes excess adrenaline to be produced in your body.

Treating Fears And Phobias

People that suffer from social phobias are sometimes ridiculed because of their fear. It is very important to understand that for these people, these fears are very real. It affects their personal and social lives. There are a variety of treatment options that are available with a lot of them being exercises to overcome the fear or phobia.

Some therapists help suffers to realize that their phobia is nothing to be afraid of and take small steps at a time to work toward making their fear a part of their everyday life.

Take, for example, the fear of driving or being in a vehicle. A therapist may take the approach to just have the client  sit in a car a few times for only a few minutes in an attempt to desensitize them to the fear.

The next step would be to put on the seat belt and start the car. After this is done, moving the car a few feet is the next progression followed by driving on side streets and in empty parking lots.

Each progression makes the task a little more stressful, decreasing the comfort level to get the patient accustomed to driving in regular traffic.

All of these steps are small, and none are pressured. For some, it takes years to overcome a phobia by just taking a few small steps at a time. These techniques in my experience very ineffective and very costly for the client.
