Are you feeling trapped by agoraphobia?
Agoraphobia can be extremely confining and life-limiting…
The great news is that agoraphobia is treatable with the help of an anxiety specialist.
In fact, research has proven that most people with agoraphobia who engage in our evidence-based treatment decrease their anxiety about being trapped or unable to access help and get back to living a full life without restrictions.
Our approach to agoraphobia treatment (Exposure and Response Prevention) is reliably proven to work for agoraphobia.
There are few mental health problems that can tangibly limit one’s ability move about the world as significantly as agoraphobia. The disorder is characterized by a fear of situations in which escape might be difficult and help may be hard to come by.
If you suffer from agoraphobia, you may feel very anxious about leaving the house, driving your car, or going anywhere in which there is a chance of becoming stuck. You may feel as though the options for how to spend your time are gradually becoming fewer and fewer. New experiences and unfamiliar places are often very intimidating. The frustration of becoming increasingly anxious in places you were once comfortable in can be both frustrating and confusing. You may also find yourself exhausted from “powering through” daily tasks.
However, part of you is yearning to get back to the activities and lifestyle you once enjoyed.
At Anxiety Solutions of Denver, we specialize solely in providing counseling to those with anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). We have successfully helped people with even the most severe symptoms of agoraphobia.
Agoraphobia manifests in a variety of ways.
Some of the things we hear our patients with agoraphobia saying are as follows:
- “I immediately identify all of the exits as soon as I enter a new place.”
- “I am so tired of driving the long way to work to avoid the possibility of getting stuck in traffic.”
- “I can’t go to the movies with my kids anymore because I’ll have to leave if I can’t find an isle seat.”
- “It is so embarrassing that I can’t sit in a booth when my family goes out to dinner. I feel like I’m holding them back.”
- “I’d love to get back to travelling but getting on a plane doesn’t feel possible anymore.”
- “I get so overwhelmed leaving my house. That is the only place I feel safe anymore.”
