"People suffering from phobias could soon learn to overcome their fears through cyberspace.

Specialists in Aberdeen are working on a virtual treatment delivered direct to patients' homes through the internet, overcoming any lack of therapists.

They hope phobias such as a fear or flying, or a fear of driving after having an accident, could be helped";

Your link isn't working, but using video, models/toys, etc. has long been used to begin tolerating people to things they have a phobia about, such as spiders. Eventually though I think it needs to be moved onto being exposed to the real thing under medical supervision to really work in true phobia cases.
