Overcome Your Panic Attack with Online Therapy

Category: Panic attacks | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Panic attacks are characterized by unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear, accompanied by physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat, chest pains, tingling sensations in your body and difficulties breathing. With these symptoms, it is understandable that you might think you are having a heart attack and seek help at the emergency room.

Usually, it is not possible to predict when or where a panic attack will occur. Panic attacks are not dangerous but they are still extremely unpleasant experiences every time they happen. Some people experience feelings of unreality, depersonalization and fears of losing control or going crazy.

Our therapy for panic attacks is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the help of CBT, you will learn how your body’s physical symptoms interact with your negative thinking patterns and behaviors to create and maintain your panic. This will help you to identify and change the distorted thinking and de-dramatize your symptoms and panics. With the guidance of your therapist, you will gradually expose yourself to and remain in situations that usually induce your panic attacks. Eventually you will be able to reverse the downward negative spiral and live your life free of anxiety and panic attacks.

"This has been helpful to just providing me with an outlet. I've very much so needed it & didn't realize how much. My therapist has been helpful with providing me with tools to practice & holding me accountable."

"This has been a very personalized experience and productive way to approach therapy. The online format forces me to do the work in thinking through the issues. It also keeps me from trying to get my therapist to "like" me-allowing me to be perhaps a bit more transparent than is comfortable for me in person. All in all, I would highly recommend this platform to anyone needing some help."

"I really enjoy the daily interaction with a therapist and find it better to communicate in writing where I can organize my thoughts as opposed to a face to face office visit."

"This program has been beneficial to me.
The videos and worksheets have been especially helpful.

I chose not to have live chats with my therapist, but I feel her written notes and encouragement to me were beneficial. I moved along a lot faster in the program over the course of a full month than the feedback I’ve gotten. To be fair, I did sessions 6-8 all this weekend, so she hasn’t had time to review. I was through session 5 by last weekend and devoted a lot of time to one part of the session and would love to have had comments through as far as I’d completed. My latest feedback at the end of this final week of my month-long subscription is still just through session 2. At least that’s all I can find. I have implemented and practiced all the suggestions and and completed all of the exercises except for one that I skipped on purpose. My current subscription expires in two days.

I wish there were a search feature for therapist feedback and maybe there is, but I don’t see one. It can be a little tedious going back to each worksheet to find something I want to comment on if I didn’t do it initially. I don’t care for the Action Plan calendar. It’s not user-friendly. I’d like to copy one day’s actions to another day without having to start over. It’s too time consuming. Some days I do the same things. The Notes app on my phone is a lot easier to use and I can record what I need to do with with audio.

I’m on the list to work with a local CBT specialist in my area. So, I signed up for this program to do in the interim while I was waiting for my first appointment with her. I’m not going to continue with the online program, but I’m grateful for it and for what I’ve learned and for the fact that it helped me learn about new ways to challenge my thinking and re-channel it to more positive thoughts that bring about better behavior. I will continue to use what I’ve learned, particularly journaling and re-directing my thinking. I already do yoga and meditate. I recommend giving this program a try if you’re not sure. I’d do it again.
