Phobias are a very common form of anxiety disorder, varying in severity from person to person. Most people who suffer from a phobia are only too well aware that their fear is irrational, but are powerless to override their initial panic reaction. Others do their best to avoid the object of their fear and suffer only relatively mild anxiety.

However, many people who suffer from a chronic fear or phobia experience acute anxiety or full-fledged panic attacks with all the associated disabling symptoms.

Difference between Fears & Phobias?

Let's start with a brief explanation of the difference between a fear and a phobia.

Fear exists for a reason and can be a very useful survival mechanism. After all, it's fear that lets you know that you need to take care of yourself and the people in your life. It's like a voice saying: 'You need to take action', and as such, it is rational.

Phobias, on the other hand, are very different. They are irrational in nature, being out of all proportion to the object or situation which elicits the fear. People can be phobic towards almost anything, from spiders to stickers, velvet to vacuum clearers. Like chronic pain, phobias really serve no useful purpose.

How many phobias are there?

It may surprise you to know that there are well over 500 recognised phobias. Some of the more common phobias include:
