About Panic Attacks

Let's take a closer look at Panic Attacks, and some of their symptoms: 

What are Panic Attacks?

Panic attacks are intense episodes of overwhelming fear and anxiety that occur suddenly and without warning. These episodes can trigger severe physical reactions, making you feel as if you're losing control, having a heart attack, or even fearing death.

Physical Symptoms of Panic Attacks

Here is a closer look at some of the physical symptoms of panic attacks:

Rapid Heartbeat

Your heart feels like it's racing, even when there's no apparent reason for it.

Shortness of Breath

Breathing becomes shallow, making you feel like you can't catch your breath.


Profuse sweating occurs, even in cool conditions.

Trembling or Shaking

Your body quivers uncontrollably.

Nausea or Stomach Discomfort

Persistent feelings of unease in your stomach.

Chest Pain or Discomfort

A sensation of tightness or pain in the chest.

Dizziness or Lightheadedness

Feeling faint or as if you might pass out.

Sensations of unreality or detachment from yourself.

How Does Hypnotherapy Help Panic Attacks? 

Hypnotherapy provides a unique and effective approach to managing panic attacks through a safe, natural, and controlled process. Contrary to common misconceptions, clinical hypnotherapy is not akin to stage hypnosis; it doesn't involve losing control or performing involuntary actions. Instead, it is a comfortable and relaxing state. Think of this as a way to quieten your daily thoughts, stress, and anxieties, and instead focus deeply on relaxation and calm.

In this tranquil state, your conscious mind—the part often bogged down by repetitive worries or stressors—is quieted, allowing your subconscious mind to become highly receptive to positive suggestions and therapeutic guidance. We can then introduce tailored strategies using The Meaden Method that target the root causes and triggers of your panic attacks. This involves using a combination of NLP, Havening and Transformative Coaching techniques. 

By engaging with the subconscious mind in this focused way, we'll dismantle the automatic fear responses associated with panic attacks. It teaches the mind and body a new, calmer response to potential triggers, helping you to move forward.

What is the best therapy for panic attacks?

While a variety of therapeutic approaches are effective, a combination clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and Havening yields the best results, due to their holistic approach. Techniques like the Meaden Method, which incorporates NLP and transformative coaching, are tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual, helping you to take control of your life and make anxiety attacks a thing of the past. 

How to cure my panic attacks naturally?

Managing panic attacks and anxiety disorder naturally involves lifestyle changes and self-help techniques. Regular physical activity, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, and maintaining a healthy diet can significantly help. Additionally, learning self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques can empower you to manage symptoms more effectively if the need arises. 

How do you break the cycle of a panic attack?

Breaking the cycle of a panic attack can be achieved by recognising early signs, using grounding techniques, and applying deep breathing exercises. Techniques taught in the Meaden Method can also provide strategies to interrupt and manage these episodes and prevent panic attacks in the future. 

What is the fastest-acting treatment for panic attacks?

In moments of acute anxiety, quick-acting strategies like focused breathing, sensory grounding exercises, and the application of NLP techniques can provide immediate relief. These methods can help shift your mental state and decrease the intensity of the panic attack. Symptoms such as hot flushes, chest pain, and intense anxiety can be relieved quickly. 

What is the 3 3 3 rule for panic attacks?

The 3-3-3 rule is a simple grounding exercise to help regain control during a panic attack. It involves looking around to name three things you can see, then listening to identify three sounds you can hear, followed by moving three parts of your body (like your ankles, fingers, and shoulders). This method helps distract from the extreme anxiety and focus the mind on the present.

How do therapists handle panic attacks?

I use a blend of clinical hypnotherapy, NLP, and Havening to address both the psychological and physiological aspects of panic attacks. These techniques not only help during panic attacks but also work to reduce their frequency and intensity by resolving underlying triggers and enhancing overall emotional resilience. This helps individuals who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and extreme anxiety to manage their symptoms, take back control and live a life that is anxiety free.
