5 Steps to total agoraphobia elimination
"When I had agoraphobia, I believed that restricting my life would 'save me' from the ravaging anxiety and panic that seemed to happen every time I tried to go out. I thought that the symptoms I was experiencing were actually the signs that 'something else' was wrong with me and that if I did manage to get somewhere, I could become chronically ill and pass out or die. These thoughts, these 'catastrophic' thought patterns seem so illogical and yet, every anxiety and agoraphobia sufferer feels compelled to obey them. I did too. My agoraphobia seemed to force me to stay at home, cocooned in my own little world, existing but not living.
How quickly did I recover?
You will probably doubt my honesty at this point but, TRUTHFULLY, 5 days. OK, in 2 days I was travelling out of the house further than I had alone in years, but after 5 days I was confident enough to drive to London and back in my own car, on day 6!
Did I use drugs to cure my agoraphobia?
No! Did I go on some 'confidence building course'?
No! I reverse engineered a practical and yet 100% successful routine, that completely eliminates the agoraphobia, a 'mini programme' that I now supply to all my agoraphobic clients when they do The Linden Method. I promise you that my clients walk out of their anxieties and change their lives in days... and you can too!"

So what is Agoraphobia?
Agoraphobia can be defined as an inappropriate fear of situations which expose the sufferer to large crowds, public scrutiny, open spaces, embarrassment or travelling away from a person or place of trust.
The dictionary definition of agoraphobia is 'fear of public places' but this definition is too narrow... the affects of agoraphobia on the sufferer can be far reaching.
Agoraphobia IS NOT a phobia!
What does this mean to you?
The word 'phobia' is defined as an anxious reaction caused by a SPECIFIC catalyst... like spiders, heights, snakes or flying. These specific phobias, unlike agoraphobia can be experienced by generally 'non anxious' people. Agoraphobia requires that the sufferer has a pre-existing anxiety disorder such as generalised anxiety disorder or panic disorder. Without an underlying high level of inappropriate anxiety, agoraphobia cannot exist.
Agoraphobia is fuelled by anxiety as sufferers limit their geographic movements to prevent an anxious reaction; this means that every time you react to your high anxiety by limiting where you go or by only travelling whilst accompanied, your agoraphobic 'habit' is growing inside of you, being reinforced by your behaviour!
Agoraphobia is NOT a mental illness, nor is it a symptom of mental illness; agoraphobia is a behavioural modification to prevent high anxiety, nothing more.
Doesn't this make sense?
Agoraphobia is a 'natural reaction'; a form of self preservation. When threatened, our subconscious mind causes us to retreat to a place of safety, agoraphobia is an embellished form of this behaviour. Agoraphobia causes the sufferer to experience the affect of anxiety even when no actual threat exists, this happens when the perceived threat is given credibility by inappropriate levels of anxiety.
The 'agoraphobic cycle' works like this:
Anxiety causes fear - fear causes retreat - retreat gives credibility to fear - fear causes anxiety... and so on.
Agoraphobia causes sufferers to limit their activities and is often responsible for the breakdown of normal routines which have a knock on affect through every aspect of their life. Agoraphobia has been responsible for job losses, breakdowns in relationships and other potentially life-changing issues.
"When I had agoraphobia, I missed out on so much. I missed holidays, parties, excursions, family events and much more. I was in limbo and I felt ridiculous. People knew that I was scared of the smallest changes in my life, that I was too scared to go out... a big strong man, scared of such ludicrous things. Little did they know the hell I was living through, little did they know that my life was a cycle of horrifying sensations and thoughts... moreover, little did I know that I was just 5 days away from being completely cured of my agoraphobia! My 5 day agoraphobia plan works for everyone who does it, sometimes in a day! Seriously, some people, in their eagerness to be agoraphobia free, do it in a day! And, it works!"
So, how do you cure agoraphobia?
What must be understood before any treatment is commenced is that agoraphobia is not an illness, neither mental nor physical. Agoraphobia is caused by inappropriate levels of anxiety and can be eliminated quickly and simply by undoing the changes in the subconscious mind that caused the condition to develop. Then, doing my 'Journey out of Agoraphobia' mini-programme over 5 days, you can and will regain control of your condition! That, I absolutely promise you, but, ONLY if you do it! Sitting staring at it won't do it! That I assure you!
I know why you might be feeling worried
I also assure you of one more thing. If you think that this will mean panicking, opening yourself up for failure or somehow undermining the 'support' you receive from your carers, family or friends... it won't. The agoraphobia and Linden Method programmes are discrete and 'FOR YOU'. You can do them at home without worrying about 'losing' your safety net! I know what it feels like to be dependent on the world you have created around your anxiety... I know how it feels when you THINK you might undermine that support or lose it. I would never allow that to happen to you... what I will do, is give you the opportunity to show YOURSELF that this works and feel reassured and confident that the recovery will continue, so that you will no longer need the 'safety net'.
Any effective agoraphobia solution MUST address the changes that have been made in the subconscious mind by the inappropriate anxiety; turning off the inappropriate anxiety response.
