A number of years ago when I used to travel with my (now grown up) family we used to make a game of scoring public toilets - to score full points they had to be clean, have lockable doors, toilet paper, hand drying facilities, soap etc. I used to find it reduced my anxiety about using public toilets and made a bit of a family game about my frequent visits to the toilet - I virtually never walk past a public toilet without attempting to use it in case I can't manage to use the next one I come across - it's a strategy which has stood me in good stead for years.
