Panic blue1Panic Attacks affect many people. They can occur when you are seriously stressed. You are likely to feel intense anxiety and fear and shake uncontrollably. If you suffer from Panic Attacks, counselling can help you take charge and feel better.

Panic Attack

Panic Attack is a severe form of anxiety that affects you physically. It’s an over-reaction to stress. It comes on suddenly and sharply when you’re deeply disturbed by something. If you don’t manage the attack and keep having them, you then have Panic Disorder.

Common feelings are dizziness, shortness of breath, racing heartbeat and trembling. You might think you’re having a heart attack, nervous breakdown, dying or going crazy.

You have horrible scary feelings and thoughts, caused by chemicals the body sends out to ‘protect itself’ because it thinks it’s in danger. Usually, there isn’t any real danger.

Cause of panic attacks include:

  • Drugs like cocaine
  • Family predisposition
  • Getting caught in a crowd
  • Withdrawal from medication
  • Overuse of stimulants like coffee
  • ‘The last straw’ when you’re very stressed
  • Serious losses or sudden unpleasant changes
  • Remembering something that upset you a lot in the past

If you suffer from panic, you can learn how to feel better when a Panic Attack comes on. Talking out your fears helps you see things more realistically.

We can teach you skills, such as breathing techniques to help you stay calm. Mindfulness Therapy (MiCBT) is the ideal to help get rid of panic attacks. Let us show you how.
