Panic Attacks / Panic Disorders

Panic disorder is characterized by unexpected and reoccurring panic attacks, which are sudden periods of intense fear. These periods may include: racing heartbeat (palpitations), shaking, shortness of breath, sweating, numbness, or an awful feeling of dread, something terrible will happen.

Panic Attacks and Panic Disorder are strongly associated with separation anxiety in childhood – or in medical terms: ‘Childhood separation anxiety is a high risk factor for panic attacks and Panic Disorder’. Whilst clients may be unaware of having suffered from some form of trauma such as childhood separation anxiety, through hypnotherapy the trauma can be identified, acknowledged and the trauma safely and permanently cleared.

As with other Anxiety Disorders, Sonia uses an integrated hypnotherapeutic approach, which she has developed over the years, to provide clients with permanent freedom from panic attacks and Panic Disorder. If you have specific questions about this approach and you are not a clinician, please contact us.

Clinicians may download (free) from the Practitioner Portal Sonia’s clinical paper (published 2018) on her integrated approach.

FEAR & PANIC AROUND:
  1. BEING A CAR PASSENGER
  2. THOUGHTS OF FLYING

“Hi Sonia – I cannot thank-you enough for helping me overcome my fears and anxieties. Although I came to you for a fear of flying, the sessions with you worked a treat not only for flying but also for panicky feelings I would get when I was a passenger in some-one else’s car! I am not the same person and so much happier thanks to you. I wish I had known about you earlier. Best Regards.”

FEAR OF HAVING A PANIC ATTACK + FLYING - FEAR OF LOOSING CONTROL

“I have my life back, thanks to Sonia!!!! I used to suffer from panic attacks many years ago. However, the thought that these would come back again at any time was always on my mind. This held me back from many things including flying and stopped me enjoying life. Working with Sonia these thoughts disappeared. After a few sessions, I feel alive, in control of my life again, happy and confident. I am also losing weight, which is a great bonus!!! Sonia, thank you so much again.”
