How To Cure Phone Phobia?

In case of phone phobia, you tend to avoid speaking with someone over the phone.

You start panicking as soon as you hear the phone ringing.

At times the fear becomes so intense that you don't even feel like hearing the voice mail or check the messages on your cell.

The other name for this phobia is telephobia and this can indeed have an adverse effect on your life.

Some essential causes of phone phobia

  • You are afraid that you will be ridiculed over the phone.
  • You have the fear that the person on the other side may misunderstand you.
  • You don't want to talk over the phone because you are afraid that you may forget what to convey.
  • You are afraid to confront the person. You have the idea that the person on the other side may behave rudely with you and ask you the reason for calling him up.
  • You are afraid that you may not be able to remember the things you discussed over the phone.
  • You have the fear that after talking over the phone, you may form a wrong impression about the person.
  • You are afraid that you may not be able to communicate well with the person.
  • You are afraid that the person on the other side may misunderstand you or not get your point.
  • Worried about receiving bad news by phone and could be triggered by receiving bad news by phone in the past. This can cause someone to never answer the phone, check messages and rely on someone else to do it for them.
  • Anxiety over simply the sound of the phone itself. Even changing a cell phone over to vibrate or hearing an answering machine can cause anxiety.
  • Not even going near a phone even when it is not ringing or being used.
