Panic

Panic is closely linked with anxiety. Many people describe panic as a sudden onset of physical and emotional sensations that can be overwhelming and frightening.

Experiencing panic symptoms can lead to heightened anxiety and fear of future episodes of panic. Learning to manage and respond to panic attacks can remove some of this fear and support you to feel more in control of it.
