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 Providence 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 Counseling in Providence, RI

Panic attacks are sudden, intense, and feel horrible. They can be defined as abrupt sensations of intense fear or discomfort that reach a peak within minutes, although they can last up to 30 minutes. Since many of the panic attacks’ physical symptoms resemble those of severe physical conditions (such as a heart attack), many people remain convinced they suffer a life-threatening condition. However, panic attack counseling or panic disorder therapy can help.

If you are struggling with panic attacks and think you could benefit from professional help, don’t hesitate to reach out to Thriveworks Providence. We offer evening and weekend sessions, and we accept most major insurances. Contact us today to get started.

Signs of a Panic Attack

During an attack, some of the following physical symptoms can occur: shortness of breath, nausea, chest pain, heart palpitations or heart pounding, dizziness, etc. There are also significant psychological symptoms such as derealization, fear of losing control, “going mad” or even dying. If panic attacks become recurrent, it might indicate a panic disorder.

If you are not sure if you have experienced panic disorder, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you especially worried or concerned with regards to these fears?
  • Do you avoid certain situations, places, activities, or even people because of these fears?
  • Are you worried about how people around you might react to your fears, and are you ashamed or embarrassed because of it?
  • Do you feel it’s harder for you to do your job because of your fear and have you reduced some of your activities?

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
