Bathophobia (Fear of Depths)

Bathophobia (Fear of Depths)

Dr. Kennedy
Bathophobia is a persistent fear of depths. Sufferers from bathophobia experience anxiety even though they realize they are safe from falling into or being consumed by depths. The feared object may be a long, dark hallway, a well or a deep pool or lake. “Bathophobia” is derived from the Greek “bathos” (depth) and “phobos” (fear).
