A PERSONAL MESSAGE – As a Cognitive Therapist I had a special interest in Panic Disorder. I suffered from very severe Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia for 5 years before I discovered the work of Dr Claire Weekes followed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (after which I quickly recovered). It was this experience that led me to train as a Cognitive Therapist.
So believe me.. I KNOW how you are feeling right now.. but more importantly, I know how to help you overcome Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia quickly and permanently.
I don’t want to seem like I am making light of your present experience but the truth is that, once you know HOW, panic is actually very EASY to overcome.
I know it certainly doesn’t SEEM easy. Probably you have tried all the usual suggestions, relaxation, special diets, distraction, positive thinking and exercise and yet you are STILL stuck with the fear.
That’s because most people think panic is either a deep seated ‘emotional’ problem or else it is to do with ‘stress’ or ‘ill-health’. Panic is none of these things. Stress can LEAD to panic but we don’t panic because of stress, we panic because we don’t know how to deal with the extreme fear of the terrifying (but ultimately harmless) thoughts and sensations we are experiencing.
The theme that runs through our Recovery Program is this – “ONCE YOU LOSE YOUR FEAR OF PANIC – IT WILL STOP HAPPENING” – Our program will show you EXACTLY how to lose your fear quickly and easily.
I wish you well on YOUR journey to a FULL recovery!
