Ophidiophobia

I am so scared of snakes that I can't even look at a picture of one. I can't afford a therapist, so what are some ways I could get over this fear without one?

Keep looking at snakes a day touch it. Sounds scary but that is what any doctor will tell you to do. It's CAT exposure and response therapy. I personally never felt it worked for me but don't worry about not having money to see a doctor because that is what they will have you do. I have fear of blood.
