Agoraphobia therapists work with their clients on overcoming panic attacks associated with the fear of large, open spaces. Those who put significant effort into cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure therapy can come out of it with a broader world to enjoy. There is no time frame in which one should expect to be anxiety free as some may respond to treatment after a few months, while others may need intense therapy for over a year. Agoraphobia treatment can be difficult as you must be prepared to confront your fears. However, with psychotherapy and sometimes medications, you too have the ability to escape the chains of agoraphobia to live a more relaxed lifestyle.
An agoraphobia expert focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps clients decrease anxiety-provoking, negative, or other self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. When the symptoms of this condition occur along with a panic disorder, cognitive behavioral therapy is widely considered to be the most effective way to both avoid symptoms and prevent their return. Self-exposure is another popular and highly effective method in agoraphobia therapy. The client is encouraged to either imagine or puts him or herself into situations that increase anxiety levels and using relaxation techniques. The individual then attempts to calm him or herself down in each situation to master control over their anxiety.
