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.

"This has been amazing so far. My therapist has understood exactly what I've been saying and her guidance has really opened my mind to therapy, which I've never seen success with. I am so happy that I chose online-therapy.com because of all the other features outside of worksheets - the journaling, the consistent contact with my therapist, and just feeling like I have her on my team and we are working (hard work!) towards a common goal of overall health - mind, body, and spirit. I am grateful and I am making progress. It's everything I wanted when I came here."

"It’s good. I think I signed up for more therapist time than I need, but it’s helpful knowing there is someone out there checking in. I find the exercises really helpful and the journal is a game changer. I wish there was an app for my iPhone though."

"Well, online-therapy.com was able to help me identify the fact that I have been dealing with thought traps sixty-seven percent into the program. The two main thought traps are catastrophic thinking and extreme thinking. The sad thing is that the thinking is relevant to reality. This is why I documented everything. This is why I dialogue everything. This is why I do so via online GPS coordinates attached to smart devices, audio recordings, video surveillance, and research on those who have been wrapped up with derogatory records online.

I am not the same anymore because life is not the same anymore. This world we live in is not like the way I remember during my childhood innocence. It's changed drastically and I have experienced corruption. I experienced trauma and severe degrees of stress in the midst of the corruption. In matter of fact, I was scoring myself out with the Holmes and RaHe Social Readjustment Scale. I was scoring over 700 consistently for a prolonged period of time. Now isn't that alarming?!

Maybe this will all change by moving into the country. Maybe than I can focus on thinking about the birds and the bees in the pine trees. The many seas that this land divides and a garden to provide. Maybe than I will not have to worry about the mafia attempting to conquer and divide. Maybe I'll be able to focus on skinning a deer hide.

"I would really like to thank Maggie for all the help she has given me past few months, I'm not sure where I would be without her help, those were some pretty difficult times for me and I really appreciate all she has done! I often use the tools I've learned in course to help me cope in certain situations and look forward to using them in the future. I won't hesitate in the future to subscribe to your site in the future if need be.."
