Panic Disorder

Counselling for Panic Attacks in Cranage & Allostock

Panic disorder is a condition that is categorised by regular panic attacks, as well as regular feelings of anxiety and fear that can occur with seemingly out of nowhere. Those who experience panic attacks might limit their professional and social life due to fear of the attacks occurring and the symptoms they produce, and in extreme cases they may not feel able to leave the house. Therapy for panic attacks in Cranage with Cathy Vincent Counselling Services can help you to address your symptoms, learn how to manage them, and work to lessen their frequency and severity.

Counselling for Feelings of Panic in Cranage

Panic disorder and panic attacks are treatable, and can be treated using therapy in Cranage known as cognitive behavioural therapy (or CBT). This approach involves your therapist working closely with you over a number of therapy sessions to focus on the negative thought patterns and behaviours that are triggering or contributing to panic attacks. Together, we will work to rationalise your fears with new coping skills that will make it easier to deal with future panic attacks and lessen their severity. Panic disorder is common yet occasionally lifestyle limiting, so counselling for panic attacks can help individuals live a less stressful life.
