Phobia Therapy

Phobias often result in an individual organising and restricting their lives in order to avoid the object, place, situation, feeling, or animal that is causing them such intense anxiety. A phobia is categorised as a type of anxiety disorder, due to the feelings that the objects induce in those experiencing phobias. Sometimes, an individual may even experience anticipatory anxiety simply at the thought of their phobia. Phobias can come in many forms and are not limited to a handful of fears. Luckily, phobia therapy in London is available through our Canary Wharf and Hendon clinics. 

Specific (or simple) phobias is the most common type of phobia experienced by the general population. These phobias often include the following:

  • Bodily – vomiting, hair, blood, etc.
  • Animal – dogs, spiders, snakes, rodents, etc.
  • Situational – such as flying.
  • Sexual – performance anxiety, or fear of STIs.
  • Environmental – deep waters, germs, heights, etc

On the other hand, there are also complex phobias. These often develop during adulthood and include agoraphobia and social phobia, amongst others. If you are struggling with specific or complex phobias, seek out phobia therapy in London with Bridges Therapy Centre.
