Agoraphobia & Panic Attacks and HYPNOSIS & NLP

Agoraphobia is one of the most debilitating of all phobias. This comes from an irrational fear of unfamiliar or potentially uncomfortable situations, and can escalate to the point where a sufferer only feels safe inside their home. If you suffer from agoraphobia, you don't need to let this condition rule your life. You can understand this phobia and find out how to beat it by using hypnosis therapy.

The word agoraphobia means "fear of the marketplace," but individuals may feel anxious in any location with a crowd. These places are often public areas or new locations away from home. Sufferers may be afraid of being in lines, shopping centers, airplanes, restaurants, or any scenario where they might not be completely safe.

Those with agoraphobia are scared of having panicky feelings or anxiety attacks in a situation where it would be hard or impossible for them to leave. Agoraphobics usually lead normal and happy lives in the places where they are comfortable, even entertaining guests and holding a job from the safety of their own homes. Unfortunately, the phobia can be so extreme that many times sufferers will only feel secure in extremely confined areas. A recent case revealed a woman whose anxiety was so severe that she didn't come out of her bathroom for years, causing damage to her own health as a result.

Agoraphobia often arises from other anxiety disorders and fears. For example, sufferers of social phobia often develop agoraphobia because they are nervous about having to socialize with others. It may also be caused by traumatic incidents such as having an accident far from home. Soldiers will frequently develop the phobia along with post-traumatic stress disorder. It can affect both women and men, although it is believed that agoraphobia is more common in women.

People suffering from agoraphobia might believe that they risk embarrassing themselves if they go out and experience a panic attack. It is often humiliating for a phobia sufferer to have symptoms such as trembling, sweating, or nervous breaksdowns and lose their self-control.

Agoraphobia is often treated with anti-anxiety medication or counseling. It can be particularly challenging to treat because sufferers may have other anxiety disorders and underlying causes for their issues.

The reason why phobia sufferers cannot seem to handle their fears is because their feelings are based at the unconscious level. No amount of willpower or conscious effort is entirely effective to suppress a fear that stems from this level within the mind.

The techniques in Ericksonian hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) are effective on phobias because they work deep within the unconscious mind. Hypnosis is an ideal treatment option because it is non-invasive and safe, with no negative side effects.

There are Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP programs available on CD that are incredible because they can cure any phobia, or even multiple phobias. It is not necessary to get a program that deals specifically with each different phobia. A good program will work with the thought process that triggers any phobia. This makes this sort of program ideal for many people with agoraphobia.

Additionally, a good multi-session program will provide a variety of techniques, which makes the program effective for virtually every user. With a step-by-step program, people can beat their phobias with relative ease.

The first step in the hypnosis phobia program is becoming calm and relaxed. As a form of therapy, hypnosis has long been used for stress-relief, letting even the most stressed-out people feel rested and relaxed. Once an individual feels calm and relaxed, NLP techniques eliminate a phobia by changing the single thought process that causes it.



Ericksonian hypnosis is a remarkable form of hypnotherapy that uses suggestions embedded in a conversation, story or metaphor to treat a phobia. Ericksonian hypnosis is more effective than conventional hypnosis because the unconscious mind finds it harder to resist suggestions that are not obvious, than direct suggestions. Instead of direct suggestions, which "tell" your unconscious what to do, suggestions that are found in interesting stories and metaphors will direct the unconscious into a positive, worry-free thought process.

People who are afraid to step outside the house can get their confidence and freedom by trying hypnotic techniques. A program with Ericksonian hypnosistechniques and NLP techniques is ideal for people who would like to to beat their fears permanently. Hypnosis therapies offer a tremendous benefit for people with agoraphobia and other anxiety disorders.
