What is Agoraphobia? Agoraphobia Meaning

The meaning of agoraphobia is an irrational fear of places or situations that make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

What triggers agoraphobia?

Agoraphobia may be triggered by open or enclosed spaces, public transportation, standing in queues, or being in a crowd.

People with agoraphobia may experience powerful symptoms, created by a pattern match in the subconscious brain.

The word agoraphobia is formed of the Greek words agora, place of assembly, open space or marketplace, and phóbos, meaning fear or panic.

People with agoraphobia experience a fear that is disproportionate to the actual risk or danger, and may cause them to avoid those situations or places.

We can help to calm the feelings that you get with agoraphobia by using hypno-counselling.

Is Covid making Agoraphobia worse?

There are a number of reasons that Covid (Coronavirus) could be increasing the number of people with agoraphobia, and the severity of the agoraphobia.

During Covid, we have been told that there is an invisible enemy.

This challenges our feelings of security, for something we can't see or hear.

The Covid threat can aggravate the subconscious brain, which then seeks way to keep you safe.

Furthermore, lockdowns have reinforced the assumed message to your subconscious mind that you are safe at home.

The agoraphobia then gets amplified, due to the Covid lockdowns, so that your brain thinks that it is safer to stay at home, and an even great risk when going outside, to public places, or being with other people.

Covid creates the perfect storm for increasing the number of people with agoraphobia and the severity of agoraphobia.

Agoraphobia Symptoms

The symptoms of agoraphobia are often similar to other types of phobia, but are specially triggered by situations or places that have a meaning for your subconscious brain.

Agoraphobia symptoms can include:

These agoraphobia symptoms are controlled by the brain's primal subconscious limbic system, which can make it very hard, if not impossible, for the logical conscious mind to control at times.

Hypno-counselling is designed to work directly with the limbic system, to retrain the automated response, so those feelings and thoughts simply no longer need to happen.
