Panic Attacks

August 7, 2007 § Leave a comment

What is the purpose of a panic attack? In my opinion and in my experience it is the unconscious mind using a sledgehammer to get your conscious minds attention. My guess is that  its tried other methods like a pit of the stomach feeling or nausea, but these efforts have been ignored or misunderstood.  I had a client who was having panic attacks and he had no clue why. I used a simple NLP technique called ‘parts integration’ to start a dialogue with his unconscious mind. We brought  the part which was causing the panic attacks out  onto his hand and asked it for what purpose it was producing these unwanted feelings. Within seconds he had his answer – he needed to postpone his wedding for six months. It was that simple. There were so many things going on in his work and professional life that the wedding on top of it all was sending him into stress overload. He was so caught up in his life and had been under stress for so long that he thought he was coping – but he wasn’t and his unconscious mind was trying to tell him that he was near to breaking point.  The result was that he rearranged the wedding, the family were very supportive and the panic attacks stopped immediately.  NLP is very simple. It uses simple techniques but don’t let that fool you because they are exceptionally powerful. If you are having panic attacks, there is probably a very good reason for it and you need to address it as soon as possible because to my mind you are nearing breaking point and you need help to find out what’s going on for you. Sit down with a trained practitioner and let them help you to get in touch with your unconscious mind. It may be some simple bit of wood that you cant see for the trees. NLP in Glasgow Scotland –
