Monophobia: Where to Get Help

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 220

There are few phobias that have a bigger impact on your life than monophobia. Imagine all of the things that you can't do if you are afraid of being alone. It is therefore important to make sure that you are able to get help if you do suffer from the condition. In order to do this you are going to have to know where to get help and what treatment options are available.

Where to look for help if you are suffering from monophobia is going to depend on how serious your problem is. There are some people who have minor cases and only panic when they are completely alone miles from anybody else. There are other people who can't even go to the bathroom by themselves. Obviously the type of treatment that will work for these two extremes will vary pretty dramatically.

If you have a fairly mild case of monophobia the first option that you may want to try to solve the problem is with self help. There are lots of books that offer advice on how to get over the condition. In most cases this works by desensitizing yourself to being alone by actually spending time by yourself. If you cannot stand being alone at all this probably won't work.

The next option that you have for helping deal with your monophobia is a support group. There are lots of other people who suffer from the phobia and getting together with them to discuss it can really help. A lot of people benefit from knowing that there are other people going through the same thing. You will also be able to get tips to help you deal with your fear by finding out what has worked for other people.

In the more serious cases of monophobia you will probably need to seek professional help. A therapist is where most people will start. During therapy you will look into the causes of your phobia and try to alter your thinking so that you are no longer afraid. This will take several months at a minimum but it is very effective.

In the most serious cases it will likely require a medical doctor to help you get over your fears. In extreme cases medication will be necessary so this will require that you see a doctor. At the same time you will also receive therapy so that you can eventually stop using the medication.

Monophobia or a fear of being alone is a serious condition that you need to know how to deal with you suffer from it.
