Fear of height

I have fear of height. I feel dizzy on height even on the medium height and its getting worse and worse. Now I feel dizzy even if I'm climbing upstairs. I even tried some high rides to minimize the fear but no use. What should I do?

Gradual, repeated exposure to the cause of your phobia may help you learn to conquer your anxiety. For example, if you're afraid of elevators, your therapy may progress from simply thinking about getting into an elevator, to looking at pictures of elevators, to going near an elevator, to stepping into an elevator. Next, you may take a one-floor ride, then ride several floors and then ride in a crowded elevator. Cognitive behavioral therapy involves exposure combined with other techniques to learn ways to view and cope with the feared object or situation differently...You learn alternative beliefs about your fears and the impact they have on your life. There's special emphasis on learning to develop a sense of mastery and control of your thoughts and feelings...Consult nearest psychiatrist they will help you further
