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.

"The therapy sessions are really great and helpful. But then there are also all the extra worksheets which you can do outside of therapy and that just makes this programme the best."

"A am going through a divorce after 25 years and, things are not very good with my work environment. I was very skeptical of online therapy but, there was a six month wait for a therapist where I live. A friend encouraged me to try out online therapy and I am so pleased that I listened. When things get this bad, friends can only help so much before you start to become a burden that starts to destabilize their lives. I knew a trained professional was the only way to get solid guidance and improve the stability in my life without driving my friend away. My experience, so far, has been very positive. Guidance from someone that is trained and has no alliances and no dog in your personal fight has been incredibly helpful to me. My closest friend has noticed so much of a change for the positive in me that, even though I am between projects, on unemployment and fairly low on available funds, he is helping me to afford to stay in this program. It was so important to him, he has gone way out of his way to help. We are only in the beginning stages of this but, it has helped beyond belief just to know that I can speak and message with a trained professional and, that she has my back. Joining online therapy was the best choice that I made in this entire mess!"
