Panic Attack Counselling

Panic disorders are one of the most common mental health conditions and affect around 1.7% of the population. When it is untreated it can increase the chance of developing other mental health conditions and dramatically affect your quality of life. our panic attack counselling will help you cope with this disorder effectively.

What are Panic Attacks?

A panic attack is when a person suddenly becomes very scared and fearful for no apparent reason.  People who suffer a panic attack usually believe they are having a heart attack or dying. Stressful conditions can cause a person to have a panic attack, but once the problem is resolved the person will quickly return to normal.

When people start to have recurrent and unexpected panic attacks without an apparent cause then the problem will develop in a condition called panic disorder. People will also have a constant fear of suffering another panic attack and will avoid situations or places where they have previously suffered an attack.

It is not known yet what exactly causes panic attacks but  genetics, traumatic events, and stressful situations play a huge role in its development.

Panic attacks are not life-threatening and will rarely cause a physical health problem, but they are frightening and will affect the quality of life of people.
