Tips for Panic Attacks

  • Sharebar

When you are having a panic attack, it is very difficult to think clearly, so you need tips for panic attacks that are simple and practical.

The best idea is to do the whole panic attacks course, but here is a summary of the tips given throughout this site, plus a couple of others.

1) Familiarise yourself with panic attack symptoms. This will relieve a great deal of anxiety as you will not fear that you are ‘going mad’, or having a heart attack or similar.

2) Practise doing 7:11 breathing when you are not having a panic attack so you can use it easily if you have one.

3) Use scaling to get yourself ‘outside of’ the panic attack.

4) Learn the AWARE technique, or carry the card in our Panic Prevention Program.

5) Know how your emotional brain works, so you understand what is happening during a panic attack.

6) Check your beliefs about panic attacks, to see if you are fueling your anxiety unnecessarily.

Other tips for panic attacks can be found throughout this site.

"Yesterday I received the CD I ordered on "Stop Panic attacks". The CD is great. It allowed me to go into deep relaxation . It is definitely the best I have on relaxation. The background info is very interesting as well. Excellent work!"

Your course has cured me. I am now able to stop the attacks happening. I have not had any attacks since the 13th August 02.


"...truly amazing!"

" I would just like to let you know that I received your CD: 'Panic Prevention Program'. "

"Though I have only listened to the CD for a week I thought I should let you know how very helpful it has been to me. Theinformation on the first side is very reassuring. I learn something new every time I listen to it."

"The hypnotic relaxation session was like no other relaxation CD I have ever tried. A deep relaxation that leaves me feeling relaxed and refreshed for hours - truly amazing!"

"Surprisingly - today I was shopping in a medium store (where I would usually begin to feel trapped and panicky) and all of a sudden I felt as calm as before I had my first panic attack and agoraphobia - it was amazing and I hope it keeps up."

Thank you, Mary.
