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 Johnson City 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?

Panic attacks represent a terrifying experience of intense fear, accompanied by numerous somatic and psychological symptoms (see below). One can experience two or three panic attacks in a very short period of time, which can be very disturbing and frightening. Many people who suffer from panic disorder are worried that their panic attacks mean they are “going crazy” or that the panic might induce a heart attack.

Symptoms of panic attacks are:

  • a racing heartbeat
  • breathing difficulties and hyperventilation
  • dizziness and lightheadedness
  • nausea
  • trembling and shaking
  • sweating
  • choking and chest pain
  • hot flashes, or sudden chills
  • a paralyzing terror
  • confusion
  • a fear of losing control, going crazy or dying

According to the DSM-5, the criteria for panic disorder are:
1) recurrent panic attacks (either expected or unexpected) and
2) at least one of these attacks has been followed by a month (or more) of one or more of the following:

  • Persistent concern about the implications of the attack, such as its consequences (e.g., fear of having a heart attack or “going crazy”) or fears of additional attacks
  • A significant change in behavior related to the attacks (e.g., avoiding exercise or unfamiliar situations where attacks could happen)

How Will Thriveworks Help Me Treat Panic Disorder Symptoms?

Chronic problems with panic attacks or panic disorder can negatively impact one’s quality of life and have serious consequences on a person’s overall physical, psychological and social well-being.

Yet, panic attacks and panic disorder can be effectively treated in our office in Johnson City, with a variety of interventions, including counseling for panic attacks and panic disorder therapy.

The first part of therapy is informational, its aim is to help the sufferers understand their condition and its causes. Many people are greatly helped simply by understanding exactly what panic disorder is and how many others suffer from it.

The second part, cognitive restructuring, helps people replace their irrational thoughts regarding panic attacks with more realistic view of the attacks they have been experiencing.

Finally, exposure therapy includes repeated and prolonged confrontation with fear inducing situations and the consequent physical symptoms, which helps weaken the anxiety responses to these stimuli and reinforce the realistic way of perceiving panic symptoms.

If you decide to apply for panic attack counseling or panic disorder therapy, our qualified counselors and therapist in our Johnson City office will be able to assist you with a range of helpful services.

We encourage you to contact us for more information!

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
