Panic seems to be quite common and panic attacks or panic disorder can be debilitating, you are not alone and do not have to deal with this alone. It is a treatable and can be reduced immensely. I have attached some self help leaflets but please if you would like further information, or to arrange some sessions to talk through and deal with these (over the phone or via email) please advise and this can be arranged. H on the BLF helepline 03000 030 555.
Next week I shall return to the subject of panic, once you have had time to read through this information and I shall include some further cognitive behavioural therapy interventions (experiments - things to think about and things to physcially do) to reduce the attacks.....
I'm afraid the pdf's were too large to post direct so if you would like me to print and post them to you please contact me with your postal details and I shall do so.
I also have some more details, information and self help workbooks that can be completed alone or with a therapist - I'd advise using a therapist for : motivation and feedback and really some to bounce ideas off and gain suggestions and advice so call or email if you would like to organise this. The service is free and confidential and takes place over the phone - I'll even call you! Hows that for a Friday offer?!
Anyway whatever you decide I hope that these help in some small way.
Any feedback would be great too.
