    Hello @sati

    Welcome to the community. I just wanted to comment to say, I moved your post to our Mental Health and Wellbeing category in the hopes you can get some responses, advice or if you have or if you have any more questions to ask :) 

    I'm so sorry you are finding it so difficult at the moment. After doing some research I found a list of therapies on the NHS website that are offered to help Agoraphobia. There is also information about how to refer yourself if this is the route you want to take. 

    Everyone is different, but I personally found Cognitive Behaviour Therapy was very helpful for my anxiety and depression.
