Ataxophobia Fear of disorder


Ataxophobia is the abnormal fear of disorder . People who suffer from this phobia do not let other people approach their things or personal matters to fix them, because only they themselves are the ones who feel with the ability to order or fix their personal things.

People who suffer from ataxophobia pay attention to even the smallest details and are very sensitive.

This type of phobia develops in people when they are young or when they are adults , but in a different way they never remember why they suffer from this phobia.


This fear begins to be detrimental to our personal and professional life when it limits us to do what we want, the frequent presence of negative thoughts and sweating of parts of the body -example the hands-, as well as cancellation of activities due to fear of disorder.

Given these symptoms, it is best to go to specialists in the psychological area.


The case of ataxophobia is a specific phobia, which is usually treated through psychotherapy, which, while teaching the patient the causes of their phobia, provides techniques to dominate the anxiety before the triggering stimulus.

Techniques to control breathing and muscle tension can also be very helpful .

A very common type of treatment for phobias is that of exposure therapy.

In this, little by little, the professionals confront the patient with the dreaded situation.

The gradual and progressive stimulus makes people gradually control their fears.

There is another treatment known as cognitive therapy, in which the patient is given a lot of information about the situation that he is afraid of, so that in this way he can gain confidence.
