Help with Agoraphobia in Derby
If you’ve been looking for help with agoraphobia in Derby – what actually is this disorder ? Well, it’s a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed. Notice the word ‘panic’ in there. Many of my articles are about panic disorder in Derby – simply because it’s perhaps the biggest problem I get consulted with. Many people feel that agoraphobia is so closely linked to panic disorder that it’s hard to draw a line between them.
Agoraphobia or Panic Disorder ?
As I’ve already indicated there’s little to separate these ailments and in my opinion, if panic attacks go untreated then it can turn into agoraphobia, as the sufferer avoids all types of situations where they have panicked before and end up having a very restricted lifestyle.
What can I do ?
For me avoidance is the worst thing you can do – as it simply sends a message to your subconscious that these times / places are somehow dangerous, and in this way your life closes in around you. So, in short, if you’ve done what you’ve always done you’ll get what you’ve always got. You need to do something different. So, seek help with agoraphobia in Derby. I normally treat it in 5 or 6 weekly sessions. Have a look at my website www.alexanderpractice.co.uk it’ll give you more information.
