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.

"I feel like a new person after having taken this class. the therapist was very helpful and I am very thankful that I was able to make a change in my life when I needed it the most. I have thoroughly enjoyed this class and seeing a change in myself when once I felt hopeless now I feel better every day. I am going to move forward in my life and use what I have learned in this class and I am very thankful for everything the therapist has showed me and share with me and I am completely satisfied with the progress that I have made so far."
