What is Your Phobia?
Have you ever been skydiving? Owned a pet spider? Or how much do you enjoy going to the dentist?…Or Are you deathly afraid of those things?If you do? Then you aren’t alone? Almost one in five fear the dentist. Then there is the stat that one in seven are afraid of flying and around 10% are terrified of spiders.
Experts Nik and Eva Speakman, who will appear on the ITV show’s Phobia Week, said:
“Many people feel isolated and embarrassed by a phobia.”
“Many people therefore hide their fear, and adapt their lives to accommodate a phobia.”
Sadly not only do these things scare people, but one in ten claimed the phobia had affected their love life, while 7% said it had cost them their job.
The couple hope their appearance will lead to more sympathy and understanding.
Nik added: “People are suffering with the belief they can never overcome their extreme fears.”
“We believe all phobias can be treated.”
