When Panic Attacks Reader reviews

I’m really taking this downtime during quarantine. To better myself not only mentally but physically and emotionally. 


This book is the best anxiety reduction technique book I’ve ever read. And I’m making major gains in my own life dealing with a panic disorder, as well as gaining tools to help my future students/clients as a counselor. Highly recommended for anyone experiencing ANY type of anxiety or anyone who has a friend/loved one experiencing anxiety.


Hunkering down with a mug of organic cocoa and my therapy homework. Yes, my psychologist gives me homework assignments, and he often has me text him when certain tasks are completed.

I fought the idea of going to therapy for years, but this past year, I needed help and I couldn’t resist anymore, so I surrendered. Truthfully, I wasn’t really sure if I was going to continue after the first two sessions, but I’m happy that I’m persevering.

Tonight’s session was a difficult one, but I recognize the importance of getting uncomfortable in order to change behavior that doesn’t serve me. So with that deeply personal share, I wish you all a good night and remind you that you don’t have to keep your struggles to yourself. Talk-Therapy can really and truly help!
