What is a Phobia?
A phobia is an irrational fear of a person, thing or situation that most of us take in our stride. A person with a phobia will avoid the situation wherever possible. People can be afraid of ANYTHING!
What is OCD?
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder affects about one in every 50 men and women. This means that in the UK there are about 1 million people who have experienced OCD at some point.
People with phobias or OCD have high anxiety and often experience panics - palpitations, ‘jelly' legs, queasiness and absolute terror. Sometimes depression is present too. The phobic sufferer tries to avoid the situation they fear, which may lead to them being unable to work or to have a social life.
