Help for Agoraphobia – fear of crowds or going out

Do you find yourself getting anxious in crowds? Does even the thought of leaving the house start building your anxiety levels? If so, then you aren’t alone! 1 in 50 people in the UK suffer from some sort of panic disorder, and a third of those will or have developed Agoraphobia.

The meaning of agoraphobia is the fear of crowds, but for many people, it is much more. Anxiety or panic attacks that occur originally in one place can spread to others until the sufferer finds it hard to be anywhere from where ‘escape’ is not easy.

Left untreated, the anxiety can build until you get to the point that you only feel safe at home and become a prisoner to your emotions. Your brain’s survival system gets ‘hyper aroused’ and starts to respond to almost any situation with anxiety or panic attacks.

Why hypnosis can treat agoraphobia

Our Help for Agoraphobia 1-hour hypnosis session aims to retrain the brain to understand that these situations are actually safe and that it does not need to generate anxiety responses.

For some, medication is often prescribed for agoraphobia, which will mask and relieving many of symptoms, but doesn’t address the root cause. Your brain needs to de-traumatise these negative feelings and relaxation. Hypnosis is effective for doing this because it keeps the mind calm and relaxed while reviewing the difficult situations or experiences, so teaching the mind to respond differently.

Our course is designed to help you begin to feel more at ease about situations that used to be frightening. For some, this will not necessarily be an ‘overnight cure’ but is a great self-help tool for dealing with and curing agoraphobia, especially when used over time.

So why wait? No situation will improve until you take the steps to make life better, so do something positive today and invest an hour in yourself.

PLEASE NOTE - This session is designed as a tool to aid in your recovery, however, if your symptoms are not easing or you’re having troubling thoughts then we strongly urge you to seek professional help and consult your doctor.

Here's how your hypnotherapy course will work

Once you’ve purchased your hypnotherapy courses, you’ll be sent a link via email or you can access your videos by logging into “my account” located on the menu bar.

Get yourself comfortable and make sure you won’t be disturbed. Turn off all mobile devices, radio and other distractions where possible. It’s important to set aside 1 hour of quiet time, this will allow you to immerse yourself into the session.

For maximum relaxation, we recommend you find somewhere quiet to lay down, but if you would rather sit in an armchair, it’s important to make sure your head and neck are properly supported.

Please try to use a speaker wherever possible rather than headphones, as these may distract you from the session if they become uncomfortable.
