In brief: Understand it

Try to understand the best you can what exactly scares you.
You may be able to read about mind over mood techniques on your own, if your phobia is not too intense. But ideally, working with a psychotherapist will be more effective and faster.

In brief: 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.
