At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we believe in providing patients with the necessary tools and skills to manage their phobia in the long term. Our therapy sessions may be complemented by our various specialist-led groups or our treatment programme for adults with mental health conditions. We also offer ongoing support to our patients to ensure that they have the necessary support to maintain their progress.
To get started with private treatment, simply fill out our online pre-screening questionnaire any time to suit you.
The first step in treating a phobia is to get a proper diagnosis. Our phobia specialists at Schoen Clinic Chelsea diagnose phobias using a variety of methods, including:
Some of the symptoms that may be associated with a phobia include:
The specific symptoms that you experience will vary depending on the type of phobia that you have. For example, someone with a fear of heights may experience dizziness and nausea when they are near a high place. Someone with a fear of spiders may experience a panic attack if they see a spider.
Our phobia specialists will use all of the information that they gather to make an informed diagnosis. Once you have been diagnosed, we can develop a personalised treatment plan to help you overcome your fear.
If you are struggling with a phobia, please don't hesitate to reach out to us for help. We are here to support you on your journey to recovery.
At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we understand that seeking phobia therapy can be daunting. Our clinic offers a safe and supportive environment where patients can receive the care they need.
Begin your phobia treatment journey with us online 24/7, by completing our secure online pre-screening questionnaire.
Once completed, our team will give you a call on the same day, or the next working day to confirm suitability and book your appointment.
At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we take a highly specialised approach to the treatment of phobias. We believe that the best way to overcome a phobia is to address it from multiple angles.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialists includes psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists. We work together to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
Individual therapy is a key component of our treatment approach with most patients attending weekly sessions. During individual therapy, you will work with a Schoen Clinic specialist to identify and challenge the negative thoughts and beliefs that are contributing to your fear. You will also learn coping skills to help you manage your anxiety.
Additional details about our approach to the treatment of phobias:
The length of treatment will vary depending on the severity of your phobia and your individual progress. However, most people see significant improvement within a few months.
We also believe that family members can play an important role in the treatment of phobias. In some cases, we may recommend that family members attend therapy sessions with you. This can help them to understand your phobia and how they can support you in your recovery.
Our patient-centred approach includes a comprehensive diagnosis process and evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Exposure Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapies.
As a patient at Schoen Clinic Chelsea, you can expect a supportive and caring environment where your needs are our top priority. Throughout your treatment, we will work closely with you to ensure that you are making progress towards your goals.
Phobia recovery timings and rates vary depending on the individual and the severity of their phobia. However, our evidence-based treatments have been shown to be highly effective in helping patients manage their phobias and achieve their goals.
CBT is a widely recognised and highly effective form of therapy for phobias. It works by identifying the negative thoughts and behaviours associated with the phobia and replacing them with positive, rational ones.
At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, our specialists utilise CBT to deliver expert therapy for phobias. Through regular sessions, patients are provided with the necessary tools and skills to manage their phobia in the long term.
CBT with our phobia specialists can be accessed via one-to-one therapy or through our group therapy sessions.
In addition to individual therapy, group therapy can also be highly effective in treating phobias. Group therapy provides our patients with a supportive environment in which they can share their experiences and learn from others who are going through similar struggles.
At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we have various groups available throughout the week that anyone with a phobia can access. Our experienced therapists lead these groups, which involve learning and practising techniques to manage anxiety and overcome phobias.
Groups can be accessed as part of our specialised treatment programme for adults with mental health conditions or as singular pay-as-you-go sessions.
Exposure therapy is a type of therapy that involves gradually exposing you to the object or situation that you fear. This is done in a safe and controlled environment and with the support of your phobia therapist.
Exposure therapy can help you to overcome your fear by gradually desensitizing you to the object or situation.
While talking therapies are the primary treatment for phobias, medication can also be helpful in managing symptoms.
At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we have leading Consultant Psychiatrists working within our multidisciplinary team who can prescribe medication if necessary.
Our specialists take the time to carefully evaluate each patient's individual needs and create a tailored treatment plan that may include medication along with therapy.
We utilise evidence-based approaches such as CBT and exposure therapy and offer group therapy and medication if necessary.
