Good morning. I’m Endri, a private employee. At the age of 26, I was afraid that if I met a snake in real life, the last thing I would get sick was because I was shocked when I met a snake in the bush. What do I think about this one phobia doctor and what kind of therapy should I do? Thank you.

Phobia is a condition of excessive fear of something. Fear that can arise in the form of fear of a particular situation / circumstance, being in a certain place, seeing certain goods or animals. Phobias themselves fall into the category of anxiety disorders.
Specific fear of snakes is called asophidiophobia / ophiophobia. Symptoms that can occur during exposure to phobias are palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, trembling, ears ringing, suddenly wanting to urinate, extremities feel cold. The causes of phobias can be caused by traumatic events, changes in brain function, or genetic influences.
Handling of phobias can be in the form of psychological therapy with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), relaxation therapy, combined with lifestyle arrangements and healthy lifestyles such as routine activities and exercise.
