Suffering from Asthenophobia?Tweet
What is Asthenophobia?
Asthenophobia- Fear of fainting or weakness.
Relaxation and breathing training - This involves teaching a phobic person relaxation techniques and breathing exercises to counteract some of the physical symptoms of fear.
Many of the alternative therapies may be helpful in this area. However, in the clinical setting, relaxation and breathing techniques are always used in conjunction with other therapies.
Cognitive-based therapies - Cognitive therapies aim to manipulate and alter a phobic person's mistaken, irrational beliefs about the feared stimulus.
