How Can Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Help Overcome Phobias?

A phobia is an unrealistic fear, whether it be of a thing, like an animal or bug, or a circumstance, like driving and enclosed spaces. When anxiety in response to the feared stimuli becomes so severe that it significantly disrupts daily functioning or causes significant distress, it is considered to be a phobia. When compared to all other psychological issues, phobias are the most likely to be resolved successfully when you get the right treatment.

 

Cognitive behavioral therapy is the preferred method of treatment for phobias (CBT). Numerous studies have demonstrated that people who get a brief course of CBT are more likely to have significant recovery.

 

If you also struggle with a phobia, online cognitive behavioural therapists in London can help you in treating phobias and any other type of anxiety problem.

 

Role of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Treating Phobias

 

By dissociating the anxiety reaction from the feared scenario, cognitive behavioral therapy can treat phobias. CBT can accomplish this in part by identifying unhelpful or unreasonable thought patterns and assisting clients in adopting new, more flexible ways of approaching difficult circumstances.

 

When people's cognitive patterns become more constructive and realistic, CBT aids in the suppression of the anxiety response by offering behavioral strategies that enable them to confront their fears without feeling anxious. After some sessions, the majority of patients exhibit considerable improvement due to this highly targeted approach to altering attitudes and actions. 

 

Individual needs are taken into account when designing CBT, which differs from person to person. Nevertheless, CBT for phobias often combines one or more of the following elements:

Individual therapy enables the therapist and client to concentrate on one another, fostering a relationship and collaborating to address the client's problem.

The duration of behavioral change-focused therapies like CBT is typically shorter.
