Spider Phobia Course

Our Spider Phobia Courses are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. We will resume courses once it is safe to do so. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Face your fears and experience a fantastic one-to-one Spider Phobia Course with experts.

Spider Phobia Course

There is no good reason to be afraid of spiders. The vast majority of spiders are harmless and extremely beneficial invertebrates. There are no dangerous spiders in the UK. However millions of perfectly rational people have an irrational fear of them. Why?

No matter how they try to be calm when confronted by a spider the response is always the same - sweating, nausea, panic, rapid heartbeat and sometimes much worse can occur. Do spiders deserve this reputation? Here at Drusillas we think not and we are now offering a course that aims to assist the arachnophobe to not only overcome their fears but to leave with a better understanding of these much-maligned creatures.


We are running courses on two dates in 2020, the first on Saturday 26th September and then again on Sunday 27th September. You have the choice of a morning or afternoon course on each day; 10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm. The Spider Phobia course costs £90 per person and there will be a maximum of two people per course.
