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 Peachtree 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.

How long does panic attack disorder therapy last?

Panic attack disorder therapy may last for a variable amount of time, depending on the individual’s unique needs.

Panic Attack Disorder Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Peachtree City GA

Have you ever felt inexplicably, uncontrollably panic-stricken—even when there was nothing threatening you? Though they can be frightening,v the therapists at Thriveworks Peachtree City know how to treat the effects of panic attacks.

If you’re ready to start working with one of our providers, simply reach out by phone or give us a call to begin.

Peachtree City Panic Disorder Counseling

At Thriveworks Peachtree City, our counselors and psychologists understand how difficult it is to live with panic disorder. Some of the effects of panic disorder can include:

  • Being more prone to alcohol and other drug abuse
  • Greater risk of attempting suicide
  • Spending more time in hospital emergency rooms
  • Spending less time on hobbies, sports and other satisfying activities
  • Tending to be financially dependent on others
  • Feeling emotionally and physically less healthy than non-sufferers
  • Fear driving more than a few miles away from home

Any one of these side effects would be difficult to deal with, but many of them are a direct threat to your health.

The good news is, even though the exact cause isn’t known, the panic attacks and side effects from it can both be addressed in therapy at Thriveworks Peachtree City.

How Counseling Can Help

There are several parts to Peachtree City panic disorder therapy. First, it’s important the client understand they’re not “going crazy.” It’s a frustrating experience, but it can be addressed through therapy—and many, many people have successfully dealt with it before.

Other interventions that many find helpful are exposure therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. If there is something triggering the panic attack, we’ll help identify that trigger. Once the patient realizes the trigger is separate from the panic attack, the trigger loses some of its power. If you have already identified the trigger or triggers, you might have been avoiding it. Though it’s understandable, it’s not an effective way to live long term. Our counselors in Peachtree City can help you slowly expose yourself to the trigger, all along teaching you steps for dealing with the physical and emotional responses brought on by that exposure. Eventually, you’ll have the skills to deal with unexpected triggers even when alone.

Sometimes, medication is also useful to help panic disorder become more manageable. It’s not uncommon for antidepressants to be prescribed by a psychiatrist when panic attacks are particularly unbearable, but it’s important that your psychiatrist think they’re necessary, since antidepressants come with additional risks.

There are certain things that you can do on your own to avoid panic attacks. Relaxation techniques, focused and controlled breathing, and avoiding caffeine and smoking can all help lessen the frequency and intensity of panic attacks. Thriveworks Peachtree City counselors can help you practice these methods and put them into practice. Victory over panic disorder is possible. Thriveworks Peachtree City counselors can help you make this a reality.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
