What are you afraid of?

by Marygrace Anderson

We all have, to some degree, a fear of something. Phobias can range from the very common:

  • Altophobia- fear of height
  • Aviophobia – fear of flying
  • Arachnophobia - fear of spiders

To the uncommon:

  • Alliumphobia - fear of garlic
  • Allodoxaphobia - fear of opinions
  • Amathophobia - fear of dust

And those are just a few of the "A’s"! There are literally thousands of recognized phobias and some are even culture specific or considered just superstitions.

The point is, it doesn’t matter where it came from, how silly or ridiculous it seems, if it is true to you, it is very serious. I have had a client so afraid of cats, that she ran into traffic to avoid it, literally putting her life in danger.

The great thing about phobias, for the majority of people, is that are very easy to treat. With a few simple techniques, you can learn how to get a hold of the fear, change it and get back on track with your life…minus the fear.
