Someone experiencing panic and anxiety is feeling the effects of the 'fight or flight' response. The fight or flight response is our bodies natural response to a perceived danger. When it is activated, hormones are released into the body to enable us to either deal with or escape from the dangerous situation.
It is important to realise that what we think about can actually activate the fight or flight response. Our minds and bodies can't tell the difference between the thoughts about a situation and the situation itself. Therefore by simply thinking, worrying or 'what if'-ing about something you are actually activating the fight or flight response in exactly the same way as if you were actually experiencing it in reality.
Many people develop panic disorder following a major life stress or a build up of stress. Major life stress can include a death of a loved one, moving home, loss of employment, relationship problems, financial problems, a physical illness, birth of a child etc.

There are several different anxiety disorders and people may experience symptoms of more than one at the same time.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder is persistence and excessive anxiety or worry about events or activities which may or may not happen.
Panic Disorder is the fear of having a spontaneous panic attack. The intensity of the attack can be extremely severe and many people feel they are having a heart attack and/or are going to die or are going insane.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is the experience of obsessive, unwanted thoughts and/or compulsive behaviours. This can include repetitive behaviours such as cleaning, checking, counting, repeating words silently, or hand washing.
Social Anxiety is the experience of fear, anxiety or panic in social situations. People may fear embarrassing themselves or making a fool of themselves in some way.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the experience, or witness of, or confrontation with an event or events that involved actual or threatened death, or serious injury, or threat of physical injury of self or others. The major feature of PTSD is the reliving of the event through dreams, nightmares or flashbacks.
Somatoform Disorder is a fear of having a serious, yet undiagnosed health condition. Often accompanied by obsessive checking of the body. Visits to the doctor and other specialists only provide temporary reassurance before doubts creep back in. More commonly referred to as Hypochondria.

The treatment available at both the Manchester and Harley Street practice is highly individualised to your unique requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. However for specific anxieties, you could be feeling considerably better in as little as 6 to 8 sessions. For more deep rooted, chronic or complex anxieties, longer term therapy may be be required.
The overall aim of this process is to help you to experience a deep permanent change in how you think and feel. So that you no longer feel anxious, which then allows you to feel comfortable and at ease, and even enjoy situations which used to cause you anxiety and fear. During the process we will address whatever issues need to be dealt with to enable you to overcome your anxiety. The treatment process itself is relaxed, sensitive, respectful and non-judgemental.

Booking is easy
NOTE: Before booking it is very important that you get your symptoms diagnosed by a medical practitioner or doctor, as many of the symptoms of anxiety may also be symptoms of more serious conditions.
I recommend booking an Initial Consultation/Assessment Session first. This gives us the chance to begin to explore your issues and your requirements further, give you honest answers to any questions you might have, give you a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you may require and begin the process of change.
I practice from a consulting room in my home located in Chorlton in South Manchester, close to junction 7 & 8 of the M60 and the end of the M56. I also practice from a clinic on Harley Street in London.
