Can phobias be cured?

I need to not be afraid of heights anymore.

Phobias can be cured through therapy, including hypnotherapy. Usually the therapy involves exposure to the phobia in small increments. So to cure a fear of heights, you would be exposed to progressively higher heights until you felt comfortable with them, and then progress to the next stage.

Absolutely, but not in every case. In general, a phobia can be cured, or partially cured through systematic and gradual exposure to the stimulus.
