Specific Phobia

Severe fear of a specific thing, situation, or people.

What is a specific phobia?

A specific phobia is when someone feels intense fear or anxiety about a particular object or situation, like spiders, heights, or flying. This fear is excessive and impulsive, causing distress or avoidance of the feared object or situation.

How do I know if I have a specific phobia?

You might have a specific phobia if you experience intense fear or anxiety when faced with a particular object or situation, like spiders, heights, or flying, and this fear is out of proportion to the actual danger. Additionally, if you go to great lengths to avoid the object or situation, or if the fear significantly interferes with your daily life, it could be a sign of a specific phobia.
