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 only been a week since I started online therapy, things are going very well. My therapist TJ has worked me through some problems' am starting to feel better, but have a long way to go... Online therapy makes it very easy to get help, no need to drive to a counsellor, every week and find I have more time to do the work required.

A big thank you to TJ and Online-Therapy.com

"I’ve been using online therapy for about 8 months now and I truly don’t know how I would’ve gotten through these past few months without it. I genuinely look forward to every session and I’ve experienced so much personal growth."

"So far I am feeling good about seeking counsel. Just writing down the issues I'm having in my personal relationship with my partner has been helpful and beneficial. The feedback I've been getting from Ashley, asking certain questions that get me to focus on real situations that are, or have been causing problems. i look forward to the responses from my therapist, and am very hopeful that my partner and I can come to an understanding and unconditional love that can stand the test of time."

"Online therapy has helped me considerably with my thoughts and emotions. My therapist has been great at enabling me to feeling my emotions and ask me questions to assist in that process. I’ve never felt pressured into sharing information and she has taken time with me as I’ve opened up. I recommend the service to anyone no matter what you need to discuss. Sometimes we just need that little extra support system and that’s okay."

"In the few weeks I have been a member, I have already noticed a marked improvement in both my mood and thinking. I have had two different coaches, my first was very good and I still think about her advice from time to time. My second coach’s therapy is based on REBT and I find it more suited to my learning style. I found both coaches to be knowledgeable, empathetic, and experienced by the way they spoke to me and guided me through painful memories or stressful situations. The site is also very helpful and comprehensive. The requirement to write down my thoughts and/or respond to worksheets helps to keep me focused on my personal goals. The website also helps to think through thought distortions on my own — although my second coach has really been wonderful. I am so glad that I found this site."

"I feel heard, listened to and understood. In therapy with other therapist I didn't feel like I was really heard. I felt like they were just going through the motions with me and didn't really care. However with Dr Cannady I feel as though she cares about me."
