Don’t Panic! Taking control of your panic attacks; Workshop
15, October 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST
For: People who suffer panic attacks
As anyone who has experienced them will know, panic attacks can be very unpleasant and distressing. This workshop helps explain how the physical symptoms of anxiety can come together and create a perfect storm of panic – and more importantly will share with you trusted techniques for overcoming panic attacks.
This free two hour workshop is designed for people who experience panic attacks and find it difficult to understand and manage the physical symptoms of anxiety, which can build to intense physical sensations or a sense of impending doom. It provides the psycho-education behind why we have anxiety, how it stimulates the fight-or-flight response in us, and what the physical symptom it causes – which we often misinterpret when having a panic attack – really mean. It will also explore evidence-based techniques for overcoming panic. With these tools you will be better prepared to get back in control of your anxiety and move forward with your life.
