Most people experience moments of panic or periods of anxiety, particularly in response to distressing events or situations.
Sudden feelings of overwhelming panic and fear are often referred to as a panic attack and whilst these feelings are a common reaction to stressful situations, frequent and unexpected panic attacks could be a sign of panic disorder.
If symptoms of panic are affecting your day-to-day life, a psychologist may be able to help. Psychologists are highly trained and qualified professionals, skilled in diagnosing and treating a range of mental health concerns, including panic disorder. A psychologist can help you to identify and manage the factors that contribute to your anxiety.
