Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia is a form of anxiety disorder, leading to increased feelings of fear when attending places full of people. Sometimes it’s not just the place but the situation that triggers intense fear. As a result, individuals may experience panic attacks and feelings of hopelessness and embarrassment. Certain antidepressants or anxiolytics with the help of psychotherapy are known to be therapeutic.
