Fear and panic are normal responses to danger or threatening situations. They are your body’s reactions to events, which have served us well as we have evolved and kept us safe. The sweating hands, the racing heart are all signs that your nervous system is getting ready to fight or flee.
For some people though, these physical feelings can occur at any time, and for no reason. This occurrence can be frightening in itself, creating a vicious circle that increases the panic attack. Often people will confuse a panic attack with a heart attack, and in fact many people are admitted to hospital fearing just that.
Panic attacks can be helped with medication and counselling. With over thirty years experience Margaret McDonald can teach you techniques and strategies control and minimise panic attacks, and tools to reduce their frequency.
