The physical and psychological experiences during a panic attack can seem catastrophic and life threatening, but they are not; in fact, quite the opposite… they are part of a response that keeps you safe.

- Shortness of breath or smothering sensations
- Racing heart or palpitations
- Feeling faint
- Pins and needles in limbs
- Urgency to go to the toilet
- Chest pains
- Neck, shoulder and/or head pains
- Shaky legs / muscle weakness
- Shivering or shaking
- Sweating – cold or hot sweats
- Disturbed hearing or vision
- Skin blanching (turning pale)
- Catastrophic / inappropriate thoughts

- … and more
Despite feeling dreadful, panic attack symptoms are manifested during the anxiety response and are not the sign of anything more. Panic attacks are normal and natural bodily responses to the release of too much adrenalin during an anxiety disorder.
Many clients come to us suffering with between 1 and 20 panic attacks each day and often, also, during the night. Nightime panic attacks are often referred to as ‘night frights’ – again, whilst alarming at the time, these are also completely harmless.
Panic attacks can be stopped quickly when the sufferer gains the knowledge and technique required to turn them off within the part of the mind responsible for producing the emotion of fear and anxiety disorders.
Is panic attacks recovery simple?
Like all bodily systems, the emotions are controlled ‘autonomously’ – outside of your conscious control… just like your breathing, digestion and blood flow… it all happens whether you are asleep or awake and cannot me changed by medication or talking therapies.
You know that no matter how you reason with your panic attacks or how much medication you take, the anxiety and panic is ever present, untouched and waiting to activate.
The science behind this is very simple indeed. In the same way as you can’t stop digesting your food… you cannot consciously stop a panic attack from activating.
BUT… you can stop the anxiety that causes them! Within hours, you can command the subconscious part of your mind that manages all these systems to deactivate anxiety, returning you to NORMAL fear responses.
Having doen this, you will never experience inappropriate levels of anxiety or panic attacks again.
Panic attacks symptoms are mind fiction… they are not based on TRUE threat… they are not harmful… they are not representative of your health.
