agoraphobia and social phobia

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've had agoraphobia for the last 15 years. It was quite okay until around January 2017. Now it is quite bad.

I'm really interested in general topics now as it seems to me that everyone (well obviously not everyone) is concerned about their problems. 

Does anyone have a vague idea that from an analytical point of view what the underlying reason for agoraphobia and social phobia is? In Hungary I talked to a very nice therapist (only email) and he said that both have to do with separation anxiety stemming from childhood. 

I've found a few interesting websites:
