A-Z List of Phobias;
It is normal to have some fear of many of the things or situations in this alphabetical list. Avoiding germs and contamination, for example, is a natural and rational human behaviour; but bacillophobia, where such fear and avoidance become excessive, is not. For a natural fear to become a phobia, it must cause you significant distress, and affect the way you live your life. Most people would not choose to have a painful injection – but if you really have a needle phobia then you may go as far as avoiding essential medical treatment or tests, or avoid getting pregnant. The phobias listed here are severe, irrational fears and phobias which stop you from living life normally, which preoccupy you, and which cause you (and your family and friends) inconvenience, distress and upset.
What is a phobia?
Every phobia is really just a particular type of anxiety – you feel very strong panic and fear about certain situations or objects. The body responds to this fear by giving you a shot of adrenalin. It may feel very similar to a panic attack. You may well go to great lengths to avoid the thing you have a phobia of and this can really get in the way of you living your life. The phobia specialists at Stockport Hypnotherapy can help get rid of your phobia for good.
