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.

"Although I was sceptical a bit at the beginning, I must admit that after couple of months I can see improvements I made in my everyday life with the help of my assigned therapist. She made me see or question things I overlooked, came up with useful suggestions, appreciated when I shared my recent small success. She's always full of understanding, brings calm energy to the table, I feel I can trust her and she won't judge me. I'm glad I decided to take this path and can't wait for more results in the future."

"I'm glad to be addressing my anxieties, and glad to be using the solution-based CBT method. I did years of (very helpful) talk therapy when I was a young adult, but at this point I know what my issues are and appreciate dealing with them specifically. My therapist is responsive and has a sense of humor, which I appreciate."
