Toilet anxiety / phobia

Postby Rs1987 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:29 pm

I suffer with toilet anxiety, where everywhere I go I constantly worry about needed the loo, and not being able to find somewhere to go, it’s a problem I have suffered with for 10 years +. And it has pretty much controlled my life. Just wondering if anybody else suffers with this? Would be delighted to hear from you

Many phobias are treated with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I recommend you seek out a therapist in your area.

The basic concept is controlled exposure to the fear, followed by reflection on how what you feared did not occur. The exposure is repeated until you gain comfort with that one aspect. Step by step, week by week, the phobia is addressed as the therapist scaffolds the therapy.
