So sorry to trouble you again. I am waiting therapy

Customer Question

So sorry to trouble you again.
I am waiting for CBT therapy for a fear of electricity.
Getting concerned as no therapist has come across this before. How can they help me the electricity is everywhere. I am afraid of the electricity in general. If I expose to each appliance separately that will take forever and how will this help me with the electricity coming into the property in general.
I'm so worried that I'm not going to get any help, this is such a vast fear to have. Can anyone offer me some hope.
Will exposing and reducing fear to say the fridge freezer give me confidence to do another appliance and so on until eventually things improve in general
Thanks so much

I am sorry you have developed this fear of electricity.

yes, CBT can help.

biofeedback therapy and exposure therapy can help.

working your way from easier appliances to scarrier appliances can help

also there are medicaitons such as zofran or paxil which can help decrease your anxiety and help you with your phobias.

you need to see a doctor about your anxiety symptoms
