Treatment for fears & phobias at The Herts Thrive Clinic serving Watford, Bushey, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Hertfordshire & the surrounding areas.
Approximately 11% of the UK population experience a phobia at some time in their lives. A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, feeling, animal or situation which develops when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of perceived danger. Indeed, people can develop a phobic response to almost any circumstance.
Claustrophobia is the irrational fear of confined space. It can affect as much as 10% of the UK population. Some sufferers of claustrophobia can react with a slight anxiety when in a confined space whilst those with an extreme form of the phobia can experience severe anxiety or have panic attacks.
There are many differing situations that can trigger a claustophobic response, even the thought of a situation without the physical exposure to them could be a trigger. Examples of which include:
Many different situations or feelings can trigger claustrophobia. Even thinking about certain situations without exposure to them could be a trigger. Some examples of common triggers include:
- tube trains
- revolving doors
- public toilets
- cars with central locking
- car washes
- changing cubicles in shops
- hotel rooms
If you have felt anxious during the last six months about being in a confined space or crowded place, or if you have avoided confined spaces and crowded places for this reason, it is likely that you are affected by claustrophobia.
If a phobia becomes too extreme, the sufferer could organise their lives actively avoiding the object of their fear. As well as it severely restricting their day to day lives, it can also cause persistent anguish.
To gauge the degree to which your fear is affecting your life, ask yourself the following:
- Do I spend an excessive amount of time thinking about my fear?
- Is my fear affecting my physical condition?
- When I think of this fear does my pulse increase, do my hands shake, do I feel nauseas?
- Does this fear make me depressed?
- Does this fear make me do things the hard way, such as planning road travel so as to avoid driving over bridges, or walk the long way to the shops to avoid a neighbours dog? Does it prevent me from going on holiday to where I would really like to go?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are likely to have a phobia and may consider treatment so that it no longer interferes with your life. So if you are in need of help for claustrophobia in St Albans, we can help with The Thrive Programme.
