A phobia is an irrational fear of an object/situation that would not normally trouble most people.

Any phobia may produce a state of panic when the sufferer is confronted with the phobic object/situation. A wide variety of physical symptoms are experienced such as nausea, increased heartbeat and jelly legs.

Phobias can be quite distinct in nature and easily identified. For example, fear of spiders, fear of thunderstorms or fear of heights.

Many people with simple or specific phobias enter into a pattern of avoidance that can vary enormously in severity from someone who would not want to touch a spider, to someone who cannot even look at a picture of a spider in magazines, and will therefore vet everything they come into contact with.

A person with a fear of heights for example may plan every journey in advance to avoid accidentally finding themselves in a place considered too high or that same person may avoid the journey altogether, thus missing out on that otherwise enjoyable excursion.
