Online Therapy for Anxiety and Panic Attacks

Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Panic Disorder. Even the diagnoses can send a chill down the spine. Although they are some of the most common afflictions I work with, they are also some of the easiest to solve. They take a lot of education, vigilance and courage to tackle. To face what one really fears is daunting; and a desire to run is usually the heart of these matters. Eventually, I help clients face their deep fears. That is where we go in my sessions. I lead you to those scary places, as a guide and a mentor, to help you see that what you fear is actually the source of everything that you cherish and value.

How I work with Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder and Panic Attacks

Depending on the type and duration of your anxiety and panic attacks, I use a combination of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) to treat clients. All three are validated methods for treating anxiety and panic attacks.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Anxiety and Panic Attacks

“Effect size estimates suggest that mindfulness-based therapy was moderately effective for improving anxiety (Hedges’ g = 0.63) and mood symptoms (Hedges’ g = 0.59) from pre to post-treatment in the overall sample. In patients with anxiety and mood disorders, this intervention was associated with effect sizes (Hedges’ g) of 0.97 and 0.95 for improving anxiety and mood symptoms, respectively. These effect sizes were robust, unrelated to publication year or number of treatment sessions, and were maintained over follow-up. These results suggest that mindfulness-based therapy is a promising intervention for treating anxiety and mood problems in clinical populations.”.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Anxiety and Panic Attacks

”Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is gaining recognition as an effective treatment for a wide range of psychological problems. The evidence emerging from both mental health research and studies of basic human psychology suggests that treatment approaches that primarily emphasize changing thoughts and feelings may be limited in their effectiveness. Moreover, these change-focused approaches may even make some problems worse. A growing number of theorists and therapists are advocating a renewed focus on the importance of acceptance when dealing with difficult emotions and troubling thoughts. Acceptance-based therapies like ACT have been referred to as the "third wave" of research-based psychotherapy, the "first wave" being behavior therapy, and the "second wave" being cognitive therapy.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has been shown to be useful in treating anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, trauma, couples distress and personality disorders. The January 2006 edition of Behaviour Research and Therapy summarized the results of 13 clinical trials. Individuals treated with ACT showed greater improvement than those who received other types of therapy in 12 out of the 13 trials.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) for Anxiety and Panic Attacks

”The Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) has evolved over the past twenty years into a comprehensive approach that includes guidelines for working with individuals, couples, and families. The IFS Model represents a new synthesis of two already-existing paradigms: systems thinking and the multiplicity of the mind. It brings concepts and methods from the structural, strategic, narrative, and Bowenian schools of family therapy to the world of subpersonalities.” “As a clinical treatment, IFS has been rated effective for improving general functioning and well-being. In addition, it has been rated promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms”.
