TobExposure is quite easy to have too much of. And it's difficult regardless of how much. But in the end having to spend time with dogs (holidays in houses where owners had dogs, carpooling to school everyday so I went to a friend's house every morning who had a dog, etc) is what helped me get over it. I like dogs now. Took about 7 to 8 years to get over it.
It's difficult, but consider these spiders a challenge to yourself like I considered being with those dogs one. Consider these spiders not the problem you need solved, consider them the solution to your phobia. It's up to you how you deal with them. I prefer capturing and putting spiders outside using tupperware boxes etc but perhaps you prefer just killing them which is a valid solution if it helps you
Spiders in Europe aren't dangerous and it's important to keep that in mind. They will not harm you. I'm certain plenty of people have told/will tell you that (I heard it a lot as well) but it's important you convince yourself of that fact
None of us are professionals though and if in the long term you really don't see yourself getting over it I suggest consulting one

Videos like his make tarantulas (and many other animals) fascinating or even cute rather than scary.
ValorousTFI'm not an ex-phobic but I remember a little bit about phobias from school.
I don't know how available it is or how easy it is to do for yourself, but there's a thing called systematic desensitisation which is quite commonly used for treating phobias.
Essentially you construct a pyramid of scenarios involving what you are afraid of, so you would start off with something small like looking at a picture of a spider, ranging all the way up to something more extreme like touching/holding a spider. Over time you gradually expose yourself to these scenarios by working your way up the pyramid, this way you gradually build up a tolerance until you eventually lose the fear - its supposed to help if you memorise relaxation techniques to make the steps more bearable.
Hope this helps bro

Every time I read any story from Australia regarding spiders I'm more glad I'm living in Europe. Their spiders are huge and really scary.
