Hypnosis for AGORAPHOBIA

Hypnosis for AGORAPHOBIA

Agoraphobia is a specific phobia characterized by fear of open spaces and public places.

People with agoraphobia feel intense anxiety, even panic, when they find themselves in these situations. This fear is strong enough to prevent them from living or working normally.

How can therapeutic hypnosis help overcome agoraphobia?


Agoraphobia, a fairly common problem:

The phenomenon of agoraphobia is quite common, but to varying degrees.

For some people, simple public transport becomes a real ordeal.
For others, it may be triggered by driving over a bridge, for example.


Causes of agoraphobia:

Following a traumatic event:
Exposure to a traumatic event or stressful situation can increase the risk of developing agoraphobia. For example, a person who has experienced a panic attack in a public space may develop a fear of such spaces.
In such cases, it’s important to consult a psychologist or psychotherapist.

Progressive avoidance:
Initially, a simple unpleasant experience such as a deserted, dark parking lot.
The person will progressively avoid such places, and as with each avoidance there is a kind of inner relief, more and more avoidance takes place. This increases the unconfort in the person’s mind, creating a veritable phobia.

Psychological causes:
Open spaces can represent a very different set of problems depending on the individual: fear of losing oneself or one’s identity, of no longer being able to express oneself, of being defenseless in social or professional life…

Studies have also shown that people with a family history of anxiety disorders are more likely to develop agoraphobia. This suggests that genetic factors play a role in the development of this phobia…

Symptoms of agoraphobia:

The most common physical symptoms are palpitations, sweating, trembling, choking, nausea or vomiting, dizziness and sometimes chest pain.

Emotional symptoms often include intense anxiety, panic fear, feelings of helplessness and loss of control. 

In terms of behavior, this can mean :

  • avoidance of anxiety-provoking situations such as public transport, shopping malls or parking lots, or isolated places like bridges or tunnels,
  • dependence on an attendant to leave home, drive, travel…
  • restrictions on social and professional activities, such as going to the cinema or theater
