Agoraphobia Treatment Options
Your fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places can result in the following symptoms:
breathlessness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying, becoming mad or losing control, a sensation of detachment from reality or a full blown anxiety attack.
You are not the only one to suffer from this type of phobia. Most sufferers are surprised to learn that they are far from alone in this surprisingly common, although often unspoken, phobia.
Agoraphobia is an intense fear of something that poses little or no actualdanger. While adults with this type of hobia realize that these fears are irrational,they often find that facing, or even thinking about facing, the feared situation brings on a panic attack or severe anxiety.
There is a Way Out
Imagine what your life will be like when you know that you are not "defective". When you can be confident and at ease in situations where you used to feel your phobia. And when you can talk about your former symptoms as though you are describing a movie where the character is someone else, not you.
AGORAPHOBIA TREATMENT OPTIONS
Many therapists use a combination of Cognitive and Behavior Therapies. This isoften referred to as CBT.
The goal of Cognitive Behavior Therapy is to modify and gain control over unwantedbehavior and to change unproductive or harmful thoughtpatterns.
You will learn to cope with difficult situations, often through controlled exposure to them and you will examine your feelings and will learn to separate realisticfrom unrealistic thoughts.
While this method claims success, it involves a great deal of mental pain. It also requires frequent therapy sessions over several weeks
Hypnotherapy Phobia Treatment
Hypnotherapyhelps to reprogram your subconscious "programs" that may be part of youragoraphobia. When these programs are "de-bugged" the symptoms ofyour phobia often are minimized.
However, some people don't like thefeeling of loss of control in allowing someone else to play with their personal"software".
