Have you ever experienced a strong feeling of fear with shortness of breath?
Have you had panic over a few minutes that felt like it lasted for a few hours?
Has your panic felt like a heart attack?
Are you a naturally anxious person?
A panic attack is an extreme form of anxiety which can happen anywhere at any time where you may feel terrified and overwhelmed, even though you’re not in any danger. If this kind has happened to you at least twice, and you constantly worry and change your routine to keep from having one, you might have a panic disorder.
There is hope. There are effective, evidenced based treatments for dealing with panic attacks.
There is a lot we can do to support, guide and assist you to improve your ability to cope and manage these problems. To find out more about how Northside Psychology may be able to help, get in touch with our team here.
