Anxiety impacts the lives of many people in our modern world. The thinking patterns attached to anxiety disorders such as panic attacks can become obsessive and the physical symptoms can seem life threatening. When the symptoms are experienced there can be a struggle to try gain control over them with different types of behaviours from breathing exercises to running out into the open. When a person understands how the stress system works and how the amygdala fires adrenaline into the body they can begin to challenge the panic attacks and greatly reduce or cease them forever. CBT can be effective whilst working with panic attacks as the person can engage in new behaviours and new ways of thinking which can reshape the brain.
Changing can be challenging and take time but is its worth it.
