CBT for some works: In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented. In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.

Counseling: Phobias can be very successfully treated with a variety of modalities. Mental imagery, self-hypnosis, controlled breathing, etc. If the symptoms become severe, then anti-anxiety medication could be considered.
