Therapy for Panic Attacks in Derby
As a Therapist in Derby I’ve been providing therapy for Panic Attacks in Derby for 17 years now – and over that period have carried out many thousands of client sessions. At any one time 50% of my clients will be having therapy for panic attacks in Derby.
If you’ve not actually been diagnosed as having panic attacks, how do you know you’re having them ?
Well the symptoms may well be different for anybody, but generally will be one or more of the following :
- A rush of intense anxiety and physical symptoms which can be frightening and happen suddenly and often for no clear reason.
- An irregular or racing heartbeat (palpitations)
- Trembling /shaking
- A shortness of breath (hyperventilation)
- A choking sensation
- Tingling fingers
- Ringing in your ears
- You can think you are having a heart attack because it feels like your heart is beating fast or irregularly, or even that you are going to die.
Panic attacks usually last from around 5 to 20 minutes. Although it may feel like something is seriously wrong, they aren’t dangerous and shouldn’t harm you.
OK so you feel as though you’re having panic attacks – so why….what’s the cause ?
Well having had panic attacks in the past, and now providing therapy for Panic Attacks in Derby – I can speak from first-hand knowledge. The physical symptoms of a panic attack are caused by your body going into “fight or flight” mode. You may wonder why more and more people seem to be suffering from panic attacks in Derby these days. Well, think about it. Think about our modern lives. The pressures upon us at work, at home, deadlines we have to keep, financial issues- and that’s without “stuff” happening, like illnesses, relationship difficulties, bereavements, social problems etc etc. You may think that you’re coping but along comes that “final straw”…that seemingly innocuous event that seems to start it all off.
OK, so I’m having panic attacks – what can you do to help me ?
Good question ! Well, firstly don’t put off contacting me. You can feel as though you’ll soldier on – but honestly, I’ve been there myself – and literally helped thousands of clients by providing therapy for Panic Attacks in Derby. I’m not scare mongering. It can at times seem to diminish / disappear, but honestly act now as it always seems to come back.
I’m qualified as a Hypnotherapist (which will help you to relax and let go of any reasons why you’ve been suffering), I’m also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Stress Management Consultant -which will help you manage yourself better during the week and challenge those irrational thoughts – which inevitably arise with this disorder.
Relief is usually attained in 5/6 sessions, ideally weekly – each lasting around an hour – and at a cost of £60.00 per session (Nov 2018).
