Classroom Fears

Like many phobias the fear of the classroom or going to school, also known as scolionophobia, induces symptoms of anxiety including breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, palpitations and dryness of the mouth, which is not conducive to learning and certainly plays no part in a happy childhood. The old saying that school days are the best of your life definitely doesn't apply to someone suffering from this particular phobia, but like other phobias, this fear can be beaten and perhaps a happy childhood can be achieved and one day those memories of school days will be recalled with fondness.

Fear of the classroom is surprisingly common, mainly because it simply isn't talked about, and while most sufferers realise that their fear is irrational and that there isn't any real dangers associated with the classroom, this phobia often goes untreated and the sufferer endures unhappy school years.

It is important that fear of the classroom is confronted – not only for health's sake, but for future prospects. A fear of the classroom could lead to someone forgoing further education and not living out their true or full potential.

What classroom phobics say...



“My daughter Sophie simply hated going to school because of her fear of the classroom. Russell treated her phobia at The Bridge Clinic and I’ve seen such a huge change – Sophie now goes to school happily and because she has beaten her fear is learning better too.”
