Agoraphobia: Treatment to overcome it

At Centro Integra we carry out the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of agoraphobia in order to overcome and control its symptoms .


The Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder that involves fear of situations or places where escape is difficult or where help might not have appeared if one panic attack .

The agoraphobia feeds itself through the anticipation of both the unpleasant feelings associated with these crises as the dangers of losing control over their own actions.

Regularly it is usually associated agoraphobia to a phobia or irrational fear of open spaces (wide avenues, parks and natural environments), but these anxiety attacks may also appear in an elevator, in a supermarket or anywhere that perceived as unsafe, that is, in which we have less control over things.


Starting from the premise that when a person has  agoraphobia they tend to avoid places or situations because they do not feel safe in public places, the  symptoms of agoraphobia  include:
  • Fear of being alone
  • Fear of being in places where it might be difficult to escape
  • Fear of losing control in public places
  • Feelings of unreality both in the body and in the environment
  • Staying home for long periods
Among the  physical symptoms that can appear in agoraphobia  we find:
  • Chest discomfort or pain
  • Feeling of suffocation
  • Dizziness or feeling faint
  • Nausea or other stomach upset
  • Accelerated heart rate
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sweating
  • Tremors


The agoraphobia is one of the  anxiety disorders  frequently. The  psychological treatment  is based on face progressively structured those fearful situations for the person who suffers up to develop a sense of control to them.
On occasion, drug treatment may be necessary to overcome this disorder, as long as it goes hand in hand with psychological therapy to ensure we maintain the long-term gains.

If you have symptoms or are suffering from agoraphobia attacks, it is best to seek a psychologist specializing in treatment , since early detection and / or treatment can help avoid major problems in the future.
