Starting Panic attack disorder therapy

What is Panic attack disorder therapy?

Panic attack disorder therapy is a specialized therapeutic approach designed to help individuals suffering from recurrent and debilitating panic attacks. During therapy sessions, individuals work closely with trained Thriveworks Greensboro therapists to identify and understand the triggers and thought patterns that contribute to their panic attacks. Through panic attack disorder therapy, individuals learn to manage their anxiety, develop coping strategies, and regain control over their lives, ultimately leading to a reduction in the severity of panic attacks.

How does Panic attack disorder therapy work?

Panic attack disorder therapy often utilizes cognitive-behavioral techniques like exposure therapy and relaxation exercises to help individuals manage and mitigate panic attacks. These methods involve desensitizing triggers, reducing physical and emotional symptoms, and challenging irrational thought patterns to empower individuals to recognize, control, and reduce the frequency and intensity of panic attacks.

Is Panic attack disorder therapy conducted in person or online?

Panic attack disorder therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and through Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.,Panic attack disorder therapy may last for a variable amount of time

Need more help deciding?

The symptoms of panic attacks and panic disorder can be very distressing and frightening, especially as they are often completely unexpected and develop abruptly. Panic attacks can strike while shopping, walking down the street, driving or even relaxing at home. Given this dynamic, it can affect emotional well-being quite negatively. In order to regain their health and quality of life, many people turn to counseling for panic attacks or panic disorder therapy.

Panic attacks peak after 10 minutes and last between 5 and 20 minutes, but can last longer in some cases. The frequency with which panic attacks occur varies from person to person: from one or two attacks a month to several times a week. According to the DSM 5, symptoms of panic attacks are:

  • Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
  • Palpitations or a racing heart
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Choking or smothering feeling
  • Feeling unreal or detached
  • Nausea or upset stomach
  • Feeling dizzy or faint
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Fear of losing control, going crazy or dying

It is due to the intensity of these symptoms – particularly the feelings of fear and terror – that many people with panic disorder are unable to relax between attacks. Panic disorder develops if, alongside repeated panic attacks, one or both of the following symptoms are present:

  • Persistent worrying about having another panic attack
  • Significant and maladaptive changes in behavior, such as avoiding places where previous attacks happened

Constant worry creates a cycle of living in “fear of fear”, which reinforces panic and anxiety. The emotional toll of this anticipatory anxiety is great and may disrupt one’s functioning on a day-to-day basis, even endangering their most intimate relationships.

Within counseling for panic attacks or panic disorder therapy, a qualified counselor/therapist can help the sufferer understand what’s happening to them, change some of their habits or practices that reinforce their condition, learn methods and techniques of controlling attack or coping with them more efficiently, or, if need be, prescribe medication.

If needed, the first step towards getting better is to get in touch with us – we can provide you with more information or schedule a session with our panic attack disorder therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Greensboro, NC.
