In brief: Many therapies exist

Arachnophobia is an extreme fear of spiders.
It is considered a phobia if the provoked anxiety is overwhelming and functionally debilitating. Phobias that are mild can be overcome with relaxation and self-help techniques, but more intractable cases require professional help. Behavioral therapy, such as exposure therapy, and medications can be prescribed to overcome these very real difficulties.
