People with phobias wanted for new BBC show
« on: 05/10/2006 14:44:22 »
My name's Louise and I'm a researcher on a BBC programme called 'Panic Room'.  We'd be really interested to hear from people who have a fear of being touched/ physical contact and people who have a fear of clowns.  We'd also be interested to hear from anyone else too though.  Please find below the advert for the show:

Does the thought of spiders make your skin crawl?
Does your fear of flying send you soaring into panic?
Does your fear of social gatherings make you stay at home?
Do you panic at the thought of using a public toilet or become panic stricken at the sight of a needle?

Has your fear prevented or disrupted holidays with friends and family?
Cost you promotion at work?

Is your phobia destroying your life, ruining your relationships or getting in the way of your happiness?

If your phobia is controlling your life then fear not we can help.

The BBC are looking for people to take part in a brand new groundbreaking programme which aims to help people overcome their worst phobias and alter their lives for the better.

But you won’t have to face your fear alone. Leading experts will be guiding you through the latest treatments and using new, highly successful techniques, they’ll train your mind to overcome your phobia and dramatically change your life forever.

So if you want the opportunity to face your fear and over come it then the BBC would like to hear from you.

Please contact us today and leave your name and phone number.

What sort of techniques are being used and by who?

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

Well, Gaia has an allergy to bananas - maybe not a phobia, but maybe a cause for fear (although technically a phobia is regarded as an irrational fear, and thus a fear without cause - but others might argue that many phobias have some ancient cause where our ancestors may have had cause to fear snakes, or whatever else one is afraid of).

It seems genuine to me , but theirs only one way to find out for sure,ring the number and find out.

Unless you've got a phone phobia or a phobia  which prevents you from talking to strange people.
