Phobias are all tricks of the mind. The most accepted definition of phobia itself states that it’s a fear which is not actually present, of a thing which is mostly harmless. So if you train your mind to believe that it’s all internal, it’s a mental construct, then you will realise it was irrational. You’ll feel better and the symptoms would gradually disappear.

I do believe that some amount of training can relieve one of phobias.

Please dont mind, but as somebody who has gone through situations involving phobias, its not quite as simple as that and usually the people afflicted already know that its a frivolous thing to obsess about. I remember hearing people with similar thoughts and just feeling so much anger. Nobody wants to obsess about the stuff that they obsess about. Not directed to you personally but just wanted to share my two cents from the other side of the table.
