Fear of traveling in New York City Subways and trains can be particularly troublesome. The clients we work with have persistent fear of panic symptoms while traveling, often leading them to avoid it altogether. Panic symptoms like dizziness and feeling faint are particularly harrowing when experienced in the subway. The expense and inconvenience of getting around town adds a further stress to an already high stress city. Sometimes people with a fear of subways and trains pass up great social and career opportunities because it is difficult to get around.
An important part of our work involves actually riding the trains with clients. There we teach them to manage and often eliminate panic symptoms, allowing them to move smoothly throughout the five boroughs and make New York City a more accessible and enjoyable place to live.
