I'm a natural worrier so I've got a lot of fears. Over the years, I've had to buck up and deal with most of them - praying helps, keeping my fingers crossed, thinking good thoughts, etc. Here's a couple for which I use different techniques.
1. Cockroaches - covered here - how did I overcome this fear? By resolving not to live in the humid climate that they love so much!
2. Spiders - overcome by a good, sturdy shoe and/or a can of hairspray! If they are not easily swat-able (is that even a word?), a quick spray will numb them long enough for me to take aim. Good grief, it sounds gruesome.
3. The Dentist - a couple of ghastly experiences has really scarred me for life so it takes all the courage I can muster to make an appointment and that's exactly what I'm working on now. Pray, keep your fingers crossed, send good thoughts my way...please.
