RATIONALE????? Since when do phobias require rationales?
I know someone who developed a driving phobia and was helped by behavioral therapy, including biofeedback training, from a major university hospital outpatient program.
Question is: is your friend ready or motivated to seek help and make a change? If she isn't, I do think you need to be honest, first with yourself, and then with your friend, about how much help you are comfortable offering, and to gently but firmly set limits.
