Fears and Phobia Therapy

Get rid of your Fears and Phobias with a counsellor that cares!


How Anything Can Be Within your Reach


ost of us start life well; we’re happy and carefree but at some point things can change.

I’m here to let you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. With a caring and understanding ear, I’ll help you to uncover the things that are holding you back in life. Together, at your own pace, we can work through things like abuses, addictions, unhelpful habits and emotional issues.

We’re not protected when we should have been, we indulge too much in things that are bad for us, or we simply make the wrong decisions about who we are in the world.

Fears and Phobia Therapy


ears and phobias can hold a person back in life. They can disrupt their day-to-day life, affect personal relationships and deter goals. If you recognise that a fear is excessive and/or unreasonable, avoid particular situations and places because of your phobia or it interferes with your daily routine, it’s time to take action.

Understanding your fears and phobias is the first step to overcoming them. By attending sessions with a fears therapy in Melbourne, you can begin to understand and overcome the fears or phobias that are holding you back in life. I am John Arber, one of the leading practitioners of fears, phobias and trauma therapy in Melbourne.

Fears Therapy in Melbourne

Fears and phobias can often be deep rooted in a traumatic experience so I’m here to listen and understand your feelings and help you reach a resolution to overcoming them. Together we will uncover the root cause of your fear or phobia.

I can help you to overcome animal phobias such as the fear of snakes, spiders, rodents, and dogs, natural environment phobias such as the fear of heights, fire, water, and the dark. I can also help with identifying and overcoming situational phobias such as a fear of flying, a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia), driving, tunnels or bridges. I can even help with Blood-Injection-Injury phobias revolving around the intense fear of blood, injury, injection needs or surgical procedures including dental work.

Specialist Therapy in Melbourne

I am an experienced therapist for trichotillomania in Melbourne. Trichotillomania is a very common disorder where one feels compelled to pull out their hair, which in turn leads to distress. This disorder is often rooted in fears and/or phobias. Fears and phobias can also result in anxiety, panic attacks, scratching of the skin, sleep disorders and depression.

Regardless of what fears or phobias you are dealing with, I can help you look at things objectively. I can talk with you about how it makes you feel, provide a listening ear, solid objectives and give you the tools to manage and overcome your anxieties. I‘ve been a professional counsellor for many, many years. Through my fear, depression and panic attack therapy services, I’ve helped people from all walks of life to sort out issues that are holding them back from living life.

My office in the Melbourne suburb of Patterson Lakes provides the perfect environment for you to feel comfortable and relaxed enough to discuss your fears, phobias and related emotions. If you can’t come to my office, I can facilitate one-to-one Skype sessions. After each session with me, whether conducted online or in my office, you’ll feel more and more in control. I also provide Trauma Counselling Grief Counselling as well.
