Panic Disorder

Most people experience moments of panic or periods of anxiety, particularly in response to distressing events or situations.

Sudden feelings of overwhelming panic and fear are often referred to as a panic attack and whilst these feelings are a common reaction to stressful situations, frequent and unexpected panic attacks could be a sign of panic disorder.

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is considered the most effective treatment for panic disorder.

CBT is a type of psychotherapy that helps a person identify and modify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that may lead to feelings of panic. CBT for panic disorder involves a range of strategies and techniques, including psychoeducation, self-monitoring, cognitive restructuring, exposure therapy, and relaxation.

Our therapist uses a range of techniques and tools in treating this condition.
