Have you experienced an episode in which you had palpitations, pounding heart, sweating, trembling or shaking, feeling short of breath, chest pain, nausea or abdominal distress, dizziness, feeling detached from yourself, fear that you might lose control or go crazy, numbness/tingling, and/or fearful you might die. You may have experienced a panic attack. These experiences can be frightening and disturbing and you may wonder if you should pursue panic attack counseling. In general people do not seek counseling after one panic attack. They are more likely to look into therapy after they experienced more than one unexpected attacks, or if they feel significant distress and fear that they might have another panic attack. If they do start to worry about subsequent attacks occurring for more than a month they may be developing Panic Disorder. In this case panic attack counseling could prove helpful.
