how can i get over my fear of bugs?

I am not scared of them hurting me, I just do not like them crawling on me or being around me. It is a very bad phobia and I'm not sure how to get over it. Please do not just recommend therapy, I already know that.

    Hello! I can see that you are interested in the techniques, not just a mere therapy.

    If you like to read, try to see: systematic desensitization that explain the dynamics of phobia and how to lighten the fear caused by the phobia itself.

    If you want more practical details, you can see "Brief Exposure Therapy" on YouTube. That's the implementation of systematic desensitization theory.

    Good Luck!

    Why get rid of it? If it isn't standing in the way of your survival is it truly an obstacle?
