Overcome Your Agoraphobia with Online Therapy

Category: Agoraphobia | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by irrational fears of public or open spaces. A person suffering from agoraphobia usually has previously had a panic attack in public and, therefore, avoids similar places or situations due to the fear of re-experiencing it.

Common places that are avoided are places that are difficult to easily escape like cinemas, churches, stores and traveling publicly by bus, train or airplane. If you avoid public situations like this due to the fear of having a panic attack and sometimes even isolate yourself at home, you might be suffering from agoraphobia.

If this sounds like you, please know you are not stuck; there are treatments that can help you. Our therapy for agoraphobia is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT focuses on the negative thinking patterns and behaviors that contribute to your fear of having a panic attack and lead to avoidance. With the help of your therapist, you will slowly be exposed to real-life situations that cause your fear of a panic attack. While this may sound scary, it will be safe and will eventually help you overcome your fears. You will learn how to control your anxiety and to look at your fears in a more realistic light. As you progress through the treatment, the thought or experience of panic will become less petrifying. Eventually you will be able to cope with previously fearful situations so you can take control of your life again.

"My experience so far with online–therapy.com has been excellent. I am looking forward to working with my therapist. I like that it is an online service because I travel a lot for work so I’m not able to do in person therapy sessions. I think the Daily work sheets will be very helpful as well"

"I enjoyed setting goals for myself which are personal only to me. I liked that I had to identify different problems areas and work out a process to meet, achieve, and alleviate that problem.

The focus to be a positive person always was a great reminder there are always ups and downs in our lives. I have learned to be more positive with this class. I have learned to control my anger when speaking to my husband. Use of my tone of voice, speaking softly, not over speaking or talking over each other. Not trying to make him agitated, but controlling the conversation for a positive conversation. It's OK to not agree on everything, but advise him that you do not agree and that's your opinion. I also like the interaction with the therapist thru the computer and thru voice. I did not care for the typing of responses back and forth with the first therapist. The second therapist listed to my responses and provided me with written feedback in the different sections or journal.

"I like that I can do this in my own time and the worksheets help me consider things I hadn't before. I did have to switch therapists but found a great fit the second try. I didn't appreciate the first piece of advice I got being "it'll be good when we talk over video" when I've only signed up for the basic package. Now that I have a good fit, I've gotten a lot out of the service."

"I have used a few online therapy programs and this one is by far the best one for me. I enjoy the structure of the worksheets while simultaneously working through my unstructured life chaos directly through live sessions and 24 hour messaging. The worksheets have really put where I am at in my process into perspective and through focusing on unbiased help separate from my family and life, I have been able to recognize where I am and where others begin. The clarity I have gained this year on what my core traumas are and the facilitation my therapist offers me on my navigation of this ever changing landscape has really been a blessing."

"I am really enjoying this program. I get to talk to my therapist everyday, and I am learning so much daily. This program is not easy, it makes you work hard, and it makes you think about how you have behaved in the past, and how you want to behave in the future. I would definitely recommend this program to my friends and family."
