It is proven to scientists that to get rid of claustrophobia is to face the fear yourself -- go into a small space you're uncomfortable in, if you can't breathe, you have to c…alm down gently. Keep on staying in that small space until you feel used to it -- then you're free! New answer The problem with this approach is that people who are afraid will not face their fears. .
I help people with phobias. It is not the closed space that makes you\nscared but yourself thinking about it! I suppose you get scared of \nbeing in a closed space even without you being inside a closed space?! .
You\nneed to pay attention to the pictures in your head and what you \nimagine. These pictures and voices in your head is what makes you \nscared. In your head you can push these pictures away, remove the colour\nand sounds. Imagine you are erasing them in your head. This will make \nit feel at least slightly better. .
A hypnotherapist should be able to help you in one or two sessions .
