Atelophobia Therapy & Counselling
Atelophobia is the Fear of Imperfection, things going wrong and also the fear of failure.
It often manifests itself as a ‘perfectionist’ thinking style and can lead to a constant feeling of inadequacy or of not being ‘good enough’.
Perfectionists are generally not really seeking perfection, but rather are seeking to avoid criticism (based on the rationale that criticism can all but be eliminated if everything that one does is ‘perfect’ and free from errors of any kind).
In this respect, a perfectionist ‘strategy’ can be defined as an ‘avoidance’ or ‘safety behaviour’ which are known to reinforce problems rather than solve them!
Whilst the feared object or situation may seem, to other people, to be ridiculous or silly, the person who suffers from the phobia knows only too well that the Anxiety that they experience is real enough.
We completely understand this and will treat you and your Atelophobia seriously.
Atelophobia Symptoms & Behaviours
All phobias, including Atelophobia, create feelings of anxiety because phobic objects or situations are always perceived as a threat.
Consequently, the symptoms of Atelophobia are both specific and generic and may include:
- Avoidance of tasks in which you could fail.
- An elevated heart rate.
- A sense of dread about making mistakes.
- Worrying that you might pass out.
- Feeling dizzy or disoriented.
- Heart palpitations.
- Dry or Sticky mouth
- Hot sweats.
- Difficulty breathing easily.
- Feelings of panic.
You may have all, some or even different symptoms to these listed here and this is due to the subjective nature of Atelophobia.
However, it is important to be aware that these symptoms WILL subside over time and rarely last for more that 20 to 30 minutes.
