I’ve had a few panic attacks over the last few years but I had a really bad one a couple of months ago and I’m finding it hard to get back to feeling confident and unafraid.
I feel that I need to see a counsellor and wonder if you know how I can
go about finding one who will be sympathetic and able to help with this
sort of problem. GD
FIONA SAYS: TALK TO YOUR GP
I suggest you start with your GP, as practices usually have a counsellor attached to them.
If not, then your doctor will certainly know where to refer you.
If you would prefer to find one for yourself, the British Association
for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) has an online directory.
Go to bacp.co.uk and click on “seeking a therapist”, then enter your postcode and details.
I should add, though, that any kind of attack like this is worth talking
over with your GP just in case it is linked with a medical condition
