Fear of Mice and Rats Swindon

Therapy for the Fear of Mice and Rats

Musophobia is the fear of mice and rats. It is a type of specific phobia, which is an anxiety disorder that is characterised by a persistent and excessive fear of a specific object or situation. People with musophobia may experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms when they encounter mice or rats, such as:

  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling faint
  • Panic attacks
  • Fear of being bitten
  • Fear of being attacked
  • Fear of being contaminated

Musophobia is a relatively common phobia. It is estimated that up to 1 in 10 people have some degree of fear of mice or rats.

There are a number of reasons why people might develop musophobia. Some people may have had a negative experience with mice or rats in the past, such as being bitten. Others may have learned to fear mice or rats from their parents or other caregivers. 

Musophobia can have a significant impact on a person's life. It can prevent people from going into certain places, such as basements, attics or out in the countryside.
