Panic attacks are extremely common.

Often panic attacks follow a period of intense anxiety or a set of extraordinary circumstances - a death, an accident, a relationship failure or a period of extreme activity at work.

Panic attacks are intense experiences of heightened psychological activity - you may fear complete loss of control, madness or death.

Often the sufferer will evaluate the worst possible outcome for a situation and begin to react as it is happening now.with all the feelings that would be accompanied if this was true. You may get to a point where you think that the negative feelings will be experienced forever and catastrophe ensues.

Panic attacks are seriously debilitating and the sufferer may go to some lengths to avoid them if it is possible.

Symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Choking sensation
  • Palpitations
  • Chest discomfort
  • Sweating
  • Dizziness or feeling faint
  • Nausea or abdominal distress
  • Numbness
  • Flushes or chills
  • Trembling and shaking
  • Fear you are dying or having a heart attack
  • Fear you are going crazy or about to loose control

How Hypnotherapy helps

Some therapeutic interventions are more suited to a condition than others. Hypnotherapy is superb with panic attacks.

Results may begin to shift the condition in just a few sessions allowing the sufferer to begin to experience life as normalised. Usually after a few more sessions the panic attacks begin to completely recede. Post therapy, hypnosis can help restructure or organise the patient's priorities to allow a space for themselves.

We can work together using hypnotherapy to deal with the condition effectively and leave you equipped with tools to manage the areas of your life that may have contributed to the panic attacks manifestation. 

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful, safe and fast tool in the right hands. Look at How Hypnotherapy Works for a jargon free explanation of this process.
