At Centro Integra, located , our Psychologists will help you in the treatment to overcome claustrophobia .


Claustrophobia is one of the most common phobias. Claustrophobia consists of a fear of entering or staying in closed places from which the person thinks they will not be able to get out (an elevator, a bus, an airplane, a closed room, a theater hall,…).

This fear is not due so much to the characteristics of the space, but rather to irrational thoughts about the catastrophic consequences that the person imagines they may suffer in these situations (not being able to move, suffocating due to lack of air, that they will never be able to leave the cabin in which it is, …), which results in a physical symptomatology associated with high levels of anxiety . When this fear becomes a problem in our daily life due to the anguish it produces, it is best to seek the help of a Psychologist specialized in the treatment of claustrophobia.


Almost all people with claustrophobia present two very characteristic symptoms: the fear of not being able to easily get out of a closed space and the fear of suffocating in that space in which they are. Among the  symptoms of claustrophobia we find:

  • Avoidance behaviors
  • Thoughts that the person is going to run out of air
  • Hyperventilation
  • Excessive sweating
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Tremors
  • Pain or pressure sensation in the chest
  • Lightheadedness, nausea, or dizziness


Claustrophobia is one of the   most common anxiety disorders . The  psychological treatment to overcome claustrophobia is based on facing in a progressive and structured way those fearful situations for the person who suffers until they develop a sense of control over them. Relaxation techniques and exposure techniques are the two most used methodologies in the treatment of claustrophobia.
If you are suffering from claustrophobia, it is best to seek a psychologist specializing in treatment , since early detection and / or treatment can help avoid major problems in the future.
So if you need a  Psychologist   for the  treatment of claustrophobia , do not hesitate to  contact  us.
