My little girl went through a stage of this when I first started going out to aquafit in the evenings, then if in the day I was going anywhere even if I was taking her but just put my shoes or coat on before hers she'd get really upset.

I just reassured her I was coming back and had to leave her with her daddy and go. He'd then phone me about 10 mins later saying she was fine then, she'd just scream and cry till she knew I wasn't coming back then she'd play and be fine. I use to feel awful, I'd be just outside the door listening to her thinking I'm not going to go and want to turn back but its good for both of you to have space. Just plan to go somewhere get her daddy to have her and just get him to send you a text once she has calmed down - over time it will be shorter and now my little one doesn't mind at all.
