This is a fear of open or public spaces. It's severity can vary from a mild to severe form. In its milder form it may be you do not want to open your curtains feeling as though this would let the world into your home. You avoid going out, or even answering your door.
As this phobia becomes worse you may find yourself having a panic attack at the very thought of stepping outside your house.
Many people suffer from this terrible affliction, sometimes locking themselves away for years and of course the longer it goes on the worse the symptoms become as the fear takes over in your mind and grows.
It is like a self imposed prison sentence with no end in sight.
However there is good news!
You do not have to put up with this debilitating phobia.
Hypnotherapy has helped many people overcome their fear, leaving them able to lead a normal life once more.
Imagine the freedom of being able to step outside, feel the sun on your face, smell the fresh clear air, and the wonderful liberty of being in control of your world.
