What is a Phobia?

Phobias are one of the most common types of anxiety disorders in which a person experiences extreme fear of a place, object, animal, or situation. While subtle fears are common, they cross over into phobia territory and can benefit from treatment when they interfere with a person’s ability to function in school, at a job, or in relationships. If you find yourself organizing your life around avoiding the object or situation you fear, phobia therapy could be game-changing for you.



  • An overwhelming or debilitating fear of a place, object, animal or situation
  • Having a hard time moving through feelings of fear or shame around your fear
  • Avoiding situations in which your fear may arise
  • An overwhelming feeling that something bad will happen 
  • Feeling like your life is being run by avoiding what you fear vs. moving towards what you love
  • Desire to develop feelings of calm, regardless of situation
  • Understanding why your fear exists and how to mediate it
  • Empowering yourself with tools to self-regulate and make you feel more in control of your life
  • Building confidence in yourself and your ability to weather all storms
  • Strengthening relationships with yourself and others


While no two individuals experience phobia in the same way, Bliss has an evidence-based process to help you overcome your fear and live a freer, more blissful life. 

  1. At Bliss, we believe your counselling should be as unique as you are. We’ll begin by getting you matched with the perfect therapist who you “click” with. When you know, you know.
  2. Then, you’ll get started with your initial session. During this appointment (virtual or in-person, your pick), you will share the ins and outs of your phobia, as well as your goals for therapy with your therapist. You’ll leave with a better understanding of yourself and how phobias work.
  3. From here, you and your therapist will create a custom path to feeling more peace and control. After each session, you’ll leave feeling clarity on the source of your phobia and confidence in your ability to take the tools you learn in therapy into the “real world.”
