Fear is one of our basic, natural and self-preserving emotions that serves to activate the body's system in moments of danger. When fear has become unhealthy, it stops fulfilling a protective function and, on the contrary, makes our everyday life more difficult. It is at this point that we recognize fear as phobia.
Phobias constitute one of the most common anxiety disorders. The condition may be described as a persistent and objectively exaggerated fear of particular objects or situations. We can distinguish around 500 different types of recognized phobias, with up to 10% of the population suffering from them in one form or another.
People naturally try to avoid feared situations or stimuli. If this is not possible, they may experience paralyzingly unpleasant sensations, which can be the onset of a panic attack triggered by the phobia. The help of experts is usually sought only when a given phobia interferes with the functioning of the sufferer’s everyday life.
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be experiencing symptoms of phobia. Please seek professional advice for further assessment.
