FEAR AND PHOBIAS
Hope for Fear and Phobias
While nearly everyone experiences some amount of apprehension about particular things or situations, for others that fear approaches a paralyzing level. Whether spiders, heights, dark places, or certain social situations, any number of things can evoke a response of fear. As fear is a natural reaction to the unknown and dangerous, the sensations felt during fear are the body’s response to heighten awareness and protect.
When such fear becomes overwhelming for a person, especially in commonly encountered situations that affect one’s regular life, that individual may be experiencing a phobia. Left unaddressed, some phobias or fears are relatively harmless, as the individual simply avoids encountering the feared thing. For others, such avoidance is not possible, and help may be needed.
