Fear is an emotion that you feel when you believe you’re in a dangerous situation. On the other hand, a phobia is characterized by an irrational fear of a person, activity, animal, or object. Many people experience fears and phobias related to flying on an airplane, heights, snakes, or spiders.

If you’re dealing with either one of these issues and it negatively affects the quality of your life, it’s time to consider fear or phobia therapy. Wherever you are located in South Carolina from Charleston to Sumter or even Mount Pleasant, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
