Phobias can affect people of all ages. Phobias are the overwhelming fear of certain objects, places, people, feelings, animals or other triggers.  

Some people can find ways to cope with their fears however, for others, phobias can feel overwhelming and unmanageable. For those experiencing a phobia or phobias, it can sometimes feel unavoidable that one’s everyday activities and plans are arranged around avoiding the phobia in question. These restrictions can then compound the panic caused by the phobia by creating further distress and inconvenience. It may not even be that coming into contact with the object itself is necessary to trigger panic, sometimes even thinking about the feared object can be enough to trigger a reaction.

If you or someone you know has a phobia or phobias, you may experience the following reactions when coming into contact with, or thinking about, the trigger: 

  • Loss of balance, feeling dizzy or light-headed.
  • Feeling sick or nauseous.
  • Sweating.
  • Feeling short of breath. 
  • Feeling like your heart is racing.
