Agoraphobia is often described as being a fear of being outdoors.  In reality, it’s much more complex.  It is worry and anxiety about being in places or situations from which escape may be difficult or embarrassing, or in which help would not be available in the event of a panic attack or panic-like symptoms. Agoraphobia can have a huge negative effect on quality of life, but Sue has therapies that can help
