Un-Agoraphobic offers a comprehensive, step-by-step self-help program for overcoming agoraphobia and panic attacks. Since overcoming his own disorder twenty years ago, Mathew has been leading support groups and recovery programs for people with agoraphobia. He understands what agoraphobes need and how to deliver it.
No one knows exactly what causes agoraphobia or panic attacks, but it clearly involves some misfirings in the brain. The good news is that recent neuroscience research suggests the brain is retrainable at any age.
The basis for any recovery plan for anxiety disorders is a highly structured approach each day. Mathew provides a daily schedule that lays out a clear set of steps and considerations for conquering this affliction, including:

Writing every day
Cultivating present-moment thinking
Taking a new approach to food and eating
Choosing a therapist
Starting a peer support group
Using visualization techniques specifically designed for overcoming anxiety and panic
Taking medications, if appropriate

Mathew includes FAQs, general survival tips, and a special chapter on tips for spouses and loved ones. Un-Agoraphobic is candid, funny, prescriptive, and spot on for panic disorders - by an author with a lot of life experience under his belt.


Hal Mathew was born and raised in Billings, MT. He began his writing and editing career at The Billings Gazette. Despite being plagued by panic disorder and agoraphobia, his journalism career included several other newspapers and a wire service. He makes pottery, gardens, and writes in his adopted home of Salem, Oregon. Visit Hal online at www.unagoraphobic.com
