The experience of panic can be debilitating and overwhelming. But did you know it is experienced in ~40% of the population? Watch this series to learn about panic and some ways to manage physical sensations. Let’s get you comfortable in your own skin again.
Dr. Michelle Olaithe
Panic is the sensation of sudden uncontrollable fear or anxiety. Let’s learn a little bit more about what panic is and do a self-assessment.
What is panic?
Setting goals is about giving yourself a clear road map of where you want to be at the end of therapy. This session will ensure you have some very clear, targeted, and measurable end points.
In this session we will talk about ways to manage the physical symptoms of panic. These are the bodily sensations of fight or flight.
Our moods colour our thinking but did you know that your thinking can maintain or amplify a certain mood? This program and activity will help you isolate patterns to your thinking during certain moods and figure out if your thoughts are helpful or need to be shifted.
Core beliefs are things we hold to be true. We hold them about ourselves, other people, and the world, and use them to guide our thinking and behaviour. This session uncovers the core beliefs sitting beneath your automatic thoughts.
Automatic thoughts are often negative and don’t have a lot of evidence to support them, however sometimes this evidence is not apparent at first glance. This session asks you to evaluate the evidence for and against your automatic thoughts and to develop a more balanced thought.
Disputation and evidence
A fear hierarchy is a step ladder to conquering your fear. You take your scariest thing and break it down into steps, then take one step at a time.
Our emotions are felt in our body and in our mind. Sometimes stress and negative emotions can mean we hold tension in our body, in our muscles. This exercise draws on that mind-body connection to get you relaxing in your body for a more relaxed state of mind.
Progressive muscle relaxation
Self-development doesn’t have to end here. Now is the time to practice the skills you’ve learned along the way or add to your learning. This session encourages you to evaluate what you have achieved by reflecting on the goals you set at the beginning of these sessions.
