Overcome Your Battle Against Panic Attacks With Online Therapy

Panic disorder is a type of anxiety that is made up of sudden rushes of fear, known as panic attacks, combined with persistent worry about the future recurrence of a panic attack.

Many people often mistake a panic attack for a heart attack or other life-threatening medical emergency due to the intensity of the feelings that go along with panic.

Sometimes concern about future panic attacks becomes so severe, people reduce their activity and stop engaging in important functions such as going to work, or even leaving the house.

FAQs.

What is panic disorder?
Panic disorder occurs when you experience recurring unexpected panic attacks. People with the disorder live in fear of having a panic attack. You may be having a panic attack when you feel sudden, overwhelming terror that has no obvious cause. You may experience physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, breathing difficulties, and sweating. Most people experience a panic attack once or twice in their lives.
What type of therapy will help my panics?

Significant research has proven cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to be the most effective treatment for panic attacks and panic disorder. In numerous studies, CBT has far outperformed all other psychological treatments, including anti-anxiety medication.

What are symptoms of panic disorder?
If you have had four or more panic attacks, or you live in fear of having another panic attack after experiencing one, you may have a panic disorder.
Panic attacks produce intense fear that begins suddenly, often with no warning. An attack typically lasts for 10 to 20 minutes, but in extreme cases, symptoms may last for more than an hour. The experience is different for everyone, and symptoms often vary.
Common symptoms associated with a panic attack include:
  • racing heartbeat or palpitations
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling like you are choking
  • dizziness (vertigo)
  • lightheadedness
  • nausea
  • sweating or chills
  • shaking or trembling
  • changes in mental state, including a feeling of derealization (feeling of unreality) or depersonalization (being detached from oneself)
  • numbness or tingling in your hands or feet
  • chest pain or tightness
  • fear that you might die
The symptoms of a panic attack often occur for no clear reason. Typically, the symptoms are not proportionate to the level of danger that exists in the environment. Because these attacks can’t be predicted, they can significantly affect your functioning.
Fear of a panic attack or recalling a panic attack can result in another attack.
When might I have panic attacks?
The causes of panic disorder are not clearly understood. Research has shown that panic disorder may be genetically linked. Panic disorder is also associated with significant transitions that occur in life. Leaving for college, getting married, or having your first child are all major life transitions that may create stress and lead to the development of panic disorder.
Can therapy help my panic disorder?
Treatment for panic disorder focuses on reducing or eliminating your symptoms. This is achieved through therapy with a qualified professional and in some cases, medication. Therapy typically involves cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This therapy teaches you to change your thoughts and actions so that you can understand your attacks and manage your fear.
How long should I use your services?

This really depends on the severity of your mental health. However, we recommend our clients meet with their therapist for a minimum of six sessions in order to uncover some of the valuable lessons and teachings that you can begin to use in your day to day life that will help you to deal with your mental health for the rest of your life.

Can I choose my own therapist?
Of course! You get to choose your therapist at the time of booking, and if you decide that you would like to change at any point, you can simply switch to a new therapist whenever you choose.
Does online therapy really work?

Absolutely! There are a wide selection of studies that prove online therapy is just as effective, if not more effective, than traditional face-to-face therapy. Our therapy provides you with the information, tools and guidance that you need to overcome your problems, with the help of your therapist.

How do I speak to my therapist?

You will communicate with your therapist via a secure, encrypted, online video call. The software we use is called Zoom which is really simple and easy to use. If at any point you would like to speak to somebody, you can contact us through our website and we’ll be on hand ASAP.

Is my information secured & confidential?

Yes! All of the information you provide is saved anonymously on our secure system that has been approved by the National Care Guidelines. Only you and your therapist will know what has been discussed. If you would like any information to be deleted or kept “off-record” simply let your therapist know and they’ll ensure everything is deleted straight away.
