Fear of the Water Video One describes how I developed water-phobia.
Fear of the water video one, describes how I developed water-phobia. I was hugely affected by the abuse at a children’s home when a member of staff would push me back into water and hold me down until I couldn’t breathe. This was a form of punishment.
This was a form of punishment that was across the board in the 40’s and was not directed necessary just to me. Nevertheless I suffered greatly at the time and the punishment affected my life for over 50 years until I had some counselling.
It took me 5 years after I had counselling before I did anything about what I had discovered. I moved to Derbyshire and bought a house only 5 minutes away from a leisure center. It was then I decided to do something about my fear because I was not working at that time.
