WHAT IS BLENOPHOBIA?
Blenophobia is defined as a persistent, abnormal and unjustified fear of slimy and therefore things with a slimy consistency. Those who suffer from this condition think that this substance can suffocate them.
The phobia is attributed to previous negative experiences with viscous substances, producing the known anxiety effects before materials such as mud, egg white, animals such as fish, snakes, snails and slugs , as well as touching viscous substances or having the sensation of feeling them on your body.
SYMPTOMS OF BLENOPHOBIA

TREATMENT TO OVERCOME BLENOPHOBIA
Cognitive therapy is an active, directive, structured and time-limited procedure used to treat psychiatric disorders ( eg, anxiety, depression, phobias, pain-related problems, etc.) .
It is based on the underlying theoretical assumption that the effects and behavior of an individual are largely determined by the way that individual has to structure the world, their cognitions are based on attitudes or assumptions developed from previous experiences.
The cognitive therapist helps the patient to think and act in a more realistic and adaptive way in relation to his psychological problems, thus reducing or eliminating the symptoms.
Cognitive therapy uses a wide variety of cognitive and behavioral strategies to achieve the goal of delimiting false beliefs and maladaptive assumptions through learning techniques.
Specialists work with the patient to effect cognitive restructuring.
It can also be treated with NLP – neurolinguistic programming.
NLP is the study of what we perceive through our senses ( sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch ), how we organize the world as we perceive it, and how we review and filter the outside world through our senses .
