In brief: For agoraphobia &

fear of heights, consider Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Behavior Therapy, Psychotherapy, Exposure therapy (imaginal exposure therapy, systematic desensitization, flooding, prolonged exposure therapy, in vivo exposure therapy) or hypnosis as possible options.
Psychotropic medications are some times indicated as well.

In brief: Therapy or EFT

Talk to a therapist; various approaches are very helpful in resolving various phobias, including cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt).
Might also wanna look into emotional freedom techniques (eft). The latter is a self help technique also known as tapping. Check it out on you tube! many psychotherapists are in on it, too, and can help you with all that!
