There are several kinds of Agoraphobia treatment, though generally, there are three types that are accepted as being the ‘best Agoraphobia treatment’. They are medication, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or medication with CBT. If you are no stranger to Agoraphobia, one or maybe all of these have been used in your situation.
These modern methods for treating Agoraphobia can often be brutal. Once medication is introduced, methods of exposure to the things you fear the most are initiated. This flooding technique can be terrifying and debilitating but over time (and unfortunately very high monetary expense), conditioning may eventually occur and sometimes this solution works.
Hypnosis, however, allows you to take your first steps outside (that flooding technique) in the comfort of your own mind. The hypnosis treatment for Agoraphobia is similar to hypnosis for panic disorder but will also probably need to help you combat depression and low self esteem as well as more extensive exposure to avoided situations and places. The hypnotherapist who will treat you knows that the fear finds its roots in your subconscious. The subconscious mind has tremendous power to influence your autonomic nervous system. This is the reason why deep breathing is so ineffective in helping people control a panic attack. All deep breathing does is try and restore calm to the body. Your body and its chemistries are already in action preparing you to physically defend yourself. Trying to mentally calm the body at this point is like shutting the gate after the horse has bolted.
Being familiar with your situation, your hypnotherapist will work with you over the phone, or in the privacy of your own home, getting you to the point of where you are comfortable greeting the outside world again, with Agoraphobia being just a faint, uncomfortable memory.
That depends on you and your current situation. We will give you a free consultation to get a general idea of ‘where you are’ as far as Agoraphobia is concerned. Your hypnotherapist can, after one hypnosis session, give you a fairly definite estimate (within one or two sessions) of what it will take for you to feel better again.
The hypnosis techniques incorporated into this program will help you or your loved one (even children) rapidly make important changes at the unconscious level of mind, which can completely eliminate these irrational fears and panic attacks.
So, if you look for reasons not to leave the house, experience anxiety at the thought of open spaces, find it difficult or impossible to go to the grocery store, chat with a friend over coffee, or enjoy a meal at a sidewalk cafe without worry-it’s time you gave yourself a chance and us a call today. You can stop dealing with this issue temporarily and be free of it forever.
