Phone anxiety - or telephobia - is the fear and avoidance of phone conversations.
It is more than just disliking a phone. You may feel extremely nervous or anxious before, during and after the call. You may obsess or worry about what you will say. Physical symptoms include nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, and muscular tension.
Phone calls only focus on our voice. Other social cues are absent, making talking on the phone daunting.
The best way to overcome phone anxiety is to make more phone calls.
If you've tried to overcome your phone anxiety or need professional help, counselling might be a great option. Cognitive-behavioural therapy is another effective treatment.
