Firstly, what is phobia?

Phobia- A phobia is an intense fear of something that, in reality, poses little or no actual danger. Common phobias and fears include closed-in places, heights, highway driving, flying insects, snakes, and needles. However, we can develop phobias of virtually anything. Most phobias develop in childhood, but they can also develop in adults

There are 3 type of phobia:

1) Agoraphobia - anxiety disorder in which you fear and often avoid places oor situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

2) Social Phobia - Irritional anxiety elicited by exposure to certain types of social or performance situations, also leading to avoidance behavior.

3) Specific Phobia- Persistent and irrational fear in the presence of some specific stimulus which commonly elicits avoidance of that stimulus, i.e., withdrawal.
