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.

"Very helpful, but it's somewhat expensive. You have to have self discipline and determination to change every day for it to work. I like it a lot. The worksheets are extremely helpful. They keep me positive and focused."

"There was a lot of great information that I learned in this course that I felt I was not learning while attending group sessions here at home. I learned that I wasn't a horrible person because I struggled, and it was nice not feel judged. The only thing I wish is there was more quicker responses when sections were finished."

"So far, so good. Still early in trying out the online method and only using the basic access but appreciate how the therapist will still respond within 24 hours. If it continues to work, will consider increasing my subscription as the one thing missing at the moment is the connection that builds with some sort of direct communication as opposed to leaving chat messages."

"I have had such an awesome experience here. The worksheets are super helpful, and very well put together to give someone a clear cut path to self-analysis."
