Support for panic in Surrey

What is a panic attack?

Anxiety can range from feeling nervous to experiencing fear. A panic attack is an exaggeration of your body’s normal response to danger, stress or excitement. You may have catastrophic thoughts about what is happening or what is going to happen. Panic attacks can occur with little or no warning and can be very unpleasant and frightening.

What does a panic attack feel like?

Panic is often experienced as physical symptoms such as difficulty breathing, increased heart rate, chest pain, feeling faint or nausea. Symptoms can build up very quickly and you might feel afraid that you are losing control. Trying to avoid the return of symptoms can cause a vicious circle where thoughts, symptoms and behaviour actually keep the panic going.
