How do you get rid of claustrophobia?

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 calm 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 scared but yourself thinking about it! I suppose you get scared of being in a closed space even without you being inside a closed space?!


You need to pay attention to the pictures in your head and what you imagine. These pictures and voices in your head is what makes you scared. In your head you can push these pictures away, remove the colour and sounds. Imagine you are erasing them in your head. This will make it feel at least slightly better.

What self help is there for claustrophobia?

I am NO expert, but I think I would try to make a smaller space super comfortable. Don't jump from a huge room to a closet, but maybe work your way down . If a room is filled with lots of things you love and appeals to you, you may be able to spend time in it. Also, maybe something like yoga that would let you focus your mind on something else like your breathing would help to calm you down. Good luck.
