What is Feardrop

Are you afraid of specific objects such as spiders, snakes, dogs, or mice?

Having an irrational fear or phobia of an animal or situation is quite common and can be treated. Feardrop is an online treatment system designed to help people overcome their fears through the principle of graded exposure.

Currently if you register with Feardrop you can complete a program designed to reduce fear of 'spiders'. Stay tuned for new treatment programs for other feared objects. Currently this program requires Flash player to work, and as such will not work on some mobile devices (iPad, iPhone and other phones) that do not support this software platform. It is also recommended that you use a 'Internet Explorer' rather than 'Chrome'.

Use the menu to the left hand side of the screen if you would like more information on how feardrop works, how to cope with anxiety, or to view a sample treatment.

If you would like to access the treatment program, you will need to register by clicking on the menu to the left. It is important to register so that you will be able to view your results and track your own progress.

The data that we record may also be used in research to improve the program. For more information go to the privacy statement, terms of use, and disclaimer links at the bottom of the page.

****IMPORTANT NOTE: The Feardrop program is undergoing technical development and will not be available to new users until later in 2016. If you would like to register, we can contact you when the next program is available ****
