Face it: Feel your fear and face it .Most neurotic fears can be overcome with cognitive behavioral therapy. This involves understanding and confronting your fears in a way that helps you overcome thematically.

Climb Ur Fear Ladder: As eleanor roosevelt said, "you gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." <> so.... Build your fear ladder. Then climb it one rung at a time! <> here's how: http://bit.Ly/zvf8lc.

Interpretation: Your interpretation of the situation your are in as well as the symptoms you are feeling can lead to a fear. Breathing changes are also a factor. Working with a cognitive behavioral therapist can help. You will need to approach your fear in small steps in order to over come it.
Dr. Andrew Berry

CBT: Seek a cognitive-behavioral therapist who specializes in phobias. One method they use is systematic desensitization which slowly and incrementally brings the person closer and closer to the thing they are afraid of in slow, graduated steps that help make the anxiety more tolerable.
