This manual has been written to help you overcome your problems and should only
be used in addition with seeing your therapist on a weekly basis. There are 7
sections of this manual and although most people will want to work through it
section by section, each section can be read on its own. In some sections there are
exercises for you to do which will help you understand why you have agoraphobia,
what keeps the problem going and how to treat it.
It is important to remember that this manual has been written as a general guide
and you will need your therapist’s help to individualise your treatment with you.
The overall aim of the manual is to teach you to become your own therapist.
