What are some methods of treatment for working through phobias?
Some of the most common forms of treatment for phobias include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy, both of which are well suited for delivery in an online therapy setting. With CBT, a therapist helps to make connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as you work to better understand your phobia or anxiety and change negative cycles. Exposure therapy is a process of working to take small steps of exposing yourself to the things that make you feel anxious. Doing this little by little can help you to slowly regain control over your fears and reactions. It is important to work with a mental health professional in these types of treatment, as they have the training to support and guide you towards progress without becoming overwhelmed.
