 APPLIED RELAXATION

  • Applied relaxation is based on the premise that people with agoraphobia and related panic disorder have lost their ability to relax.
  • The aim of applied relaxation is therefore to teach you how to relax.
  • This is achieved using a series of exercises designed to teach you how to:
  • Spot the signs and feelings of tension
  • Relax your muscles to relieve tension
  • Use these techniques in stressful or everyday situations to prevent you feeling tense and panic

 Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

  • CBT aims to break this cycle and find new ways of thinking that can help you behave more positively. For example, many people with agoraphobia have the unrealistic thought that if they have a panic attack it will kill them.
