Overcome Your Agoraphobia with Online Therapy

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.

"The worksheets are very helpful. They help you to start realizing what your problems are and how to start correcting them on your own and the steps to take to slowly be able to do that. My therapist is very helpful with everything and helpful in explaining the best ways to help myself get where I want to be. She also is very good at listening to my problems and giving me the tools to help myself deal with them on my own while also helping me through them."

"I have only been at this for a week but I am really liking online-therapy.com and my therapist. It's been great just getting my feelings out as well as learning a lot of new information about types of stress and what it can do to hold you back. The worksheets have been really great and have definitely helped me verbalize the thoughts that are usually spinning around in my head. By discussing my stressors and anxieties with my therapist it has really made me take a hard look in the mirror while also realizing the issues aren't really that bad. I'm really looking forward to furthering my discussions with my therapist."
