Dream symbols - phoning police

THE DREAM There is some kind of commotion going on. I decide to use my phone to call the police as they will sort things out.

GUESSWORK The dreamer was getting psychiatric help for phobias. He found it very difficult to use phones and indeed tell his support workers if he was in a crisis. He was trying to get used to phones but it was not easy for him. He tended to bottle things up and this usually made any crisis worse.
