If you’ve ever experienced a panic attack, you’ll know just how scary they can be. They are an exaggerated response to stress and while they can have obvious triggers, it’s not always clear why they occur.
Panic attacks tend to be brief and most only last for around 20 minutes (although it can feel an awful lot longer!) but that doesn’t make them any less intense. Many of the clients I’ve helped to overcome panic attacks have been worried that they were having a heart attack or would pass out. The intense fear that panic attacks bring can be hugely debilitating but it can be overcome, and hypnotherapy can be a very successful way to regain control.
