Overcome Your Agoraphobia with Online Therapy

Category: Agoraphobia Online Therapy | Last updated: February 1st, 2022 | 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.

"It has been wonderful working with a therapist online who responds in depth to my worksheets and messages. I enjoy having the live session once a week to go a little deeper into the self work and discover new methods to help overcome some of my personal issues. So far, this has been a great experience."

"So far it's been very helpful. I can already feel a huge difference in my life despite using it for such little time. It works well with my schedule as its very busy and I don't have easy access to town. I can just open it up any time I am free and simply browse what I need to do. Would be nice if there was an app that I could use, and if there already is one, wish it was easier to access (As I have tried looking everywhere for one.) Feel like I would use more of the journal/activity functions with an easy to access app."
