Arachnophobia, otherwise known as spider phobia, is the intenst fear of spiders and other arachnids.
Keep in mind that while the fear of spiders is common, not every person who feels afraid or on edge around them has arachnophobia.
Symptoms of arachnophobia may include:
The effects of arachnophobia can significantly impact your quality of life. For example, you may experience panic symptoms and not feel comfortable in your home knowing that a spider is in there.
Like other specific phobias, arachnophobia is most commonly treated with therapy, particularly cognitive behavioral techniques.
If you are experiencing symptoms of arachnophobia, there are ways you can cope.
A diagnosis for a specific phobia requires that the symptoms be present for at least six months and cause significant distress or a disruption to your life and well-being.
Your doctor or mental health clinician may ask you questions about your symptoms, their intensity, and their duration. They may also take a medical history, ask about your current coping skills, and find out what your treatment goals are.
