"Do I have to take drugs to get rid of panic attacks?"

No you do not. Although some drugs can be useful in the short term if panic attacks are very frequent and severe they are not a long term answer.

Appropriate brief psychotherapy incorporating Cognitive approaches, relaxation techniques and ‘deconditioning’ is the most effective, as contained within our Panic Prevention Program.

This sort of therapy will enable you to stop your panic attacks and inoculate you against future attacks. The audio program may be enough for you, or you may need to see an appropriately trained professional near you.

"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!"

I found this course very helpful and you have answered all of my questions.


"...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.
