Do you suffer from a fear of vegetables? Here are the UK's strangest phobiasIf you get jumpy at the thought of spiders o

r youre faint at the idea of needles, youre not alone. But the UKs weirdest phobias have been re

vealed, and theyre a far cry from the usual. Think work, buttons, clowns and even vegetables and youre imagining the nightmares of a whole host of Brits. An organisation which works with people suffering from phobias using Cognitive Behav

ioural Therapy (CBT) has revealed phobias that people have been treated for. One of the stranger conditions treated by CBT

specialists Dynamic You – especially among those employed in the City of London – is ‘ergophobia’, or the fear of working. Alex Hedger, clinical director of Dynamic You, said: “Phobias are the most common type of anxiety disorder, with an estimated 10 million people in the UK — roughly one in six of us — suffering from them. “While some of them can seem quite amusing, phobias can be debilitating and sufferers will often organise their life around avoiding the object of their anxiety. For them, their phobia is no laughing matter at all and people should always be sensitive. “Treatment usua

lly involves gradual exposure to the fear in question, so that sufferers feel less anxious about it. This is known as desensitisation or exposure therapy, and enables people to gain control over their phobia.” The top five most com

mon phobias are vomit, height, social, animal and blood-injury-needle - but the

oddest ones are strange indeed. Have a look and see if you feel like you might be a su

rking world causes a lot of trauma for sufferers of ergophobia (Image: Getty) Do you suffer from a phobia? Email YourMirror@mirror.co.uk or fill in the form below. Especially common in the City of

London, ‘ergophobia’ is a deep and persistent fear of work. Sufferers often have a combination of fears, such as a fear of failing at as

signed tasks, getting fired, speaking before groups, or socialising with co-workers. Not to be confused with laziness. Vegetable phobia Natures best: You might see a healthy dinner - but there are people who are phobic of even looking at this bounty People getting anxious at the thought of vegetables is a phobia that D

ynamic You has treated on

a number of occasions. One patient’s fear was focused on long green vegetables, namely cucumbers and marrows. The fear is of the vegetable itself rather than pure

ly the act of eating it. Clown phobia No laughing matter: Two circuses — Chaplin’s Circus and Circus Won

derland — are not only clown-free, but even run clown exposure courses (Image: getty images) This is a bigger fear than people would imagine. Interestingly, certain circuses travelling around the country don’t have clowns for this very reason. Two circuses that Brits may be familiar with — Chaplin’s Circus and Circus Wonderland — are not only clown-free, but even run clown exposure courses. Button phobia Haberdasher dash: Buttons can send people fleeing if they present with koumpounophobia Dynamic You has treated a patient suffering from a very rare disorder: a phobia of buttons. ‘Koumpounophobia’ is the technical name for this phobia and the patient they treated could only wear clothes with zips. This phobia is often linked to a fear of holes. Urination phobia Toilet fear: People who are frightened of being caught short can have strange measures including cutting down on drinking fluids (Image:甘肃快三.爱彩乐 Getty) This is not a fear of the act of urinating but of being caught short. While one of the more sensitive phobias people present with, it is also quite common and can have a big impact on peoples lives, e.g. they may restrict fluid intake, which can lead to health problems.
