Panic Attacks, Anxiety Attacks, Panic Disorder

A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Also known as Anxiety Attacks or Panic Disorder, panic attacks are very common.

Maybe your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going mad. Sometimes you feel as though you are going to be sick. Other symptoms include trembling, sweating, nausea and or faintness. You feel very out of control.

Panic Attacks are very frightening, and sometimes the worry of having a panic attack can actually bring one on. Sometimes they appear to come out of nowhere.

Panic attacks mostly occur when you are in a situation that either consciously or unconsciously you feel under threat or danger. It is the body’s natural “fight or flight” response.

It is important for you to address underlying issues which may but not always be found in painful past experience. These underlying causes need to be worked on as part of a healing process to resolve problems with panic.

As you are a unique individual, I offer different approaches to help you resolve your panicked feelings. Analytical Hypnotherapy will allow you to find and resolve the root causes of your problem, or to find and release the feelings which may be underlying your problem.

I also work with you to help you understand how your beliefs about how you feel are very real to you, and how they are affecting you as an individual. Then we work together to look more deeply at how we can address your beliefs to change. I gently teach you how to understand better your unique personality, and change unhelpful thinking in order to overcome your fear.

You will find yourself in a safe, confidential environment.
