Hello,

Since childhood I am afraid to be alone in the dark and also on high buildings or places. Is there any treatment about these phobias? Thanks

Definitely - you may need professional help for them. Talk to your GP about it.

My case is quite similar to yours. I am afraid of heights but a friend once told me something about these fear. In fact we are not afraid of the dark but rather what may be in it and we are not afraid of heights but rather it is the fear of falling down. I took some time thinking about it and gradually my fear is vanishing.
