College can be a fun, exciting time for many young adults.  However, it can also be a time of intense anxiety due to the demands of being newly independent, expectations and the perceived pressure around academic performance and tests.

A key theme underlying anxiety is struggle with uncertainty and lack of control.  Those who struggle with anxiety often try to obtain total certainty or control when it is impossible to do so.

For those struggling with anxiety disorders,panic attacks, phobia, etc., expert anxiety counseling is essential for learning how to handle uncertainty and work with life's unpredictable nature.

Panic Disorder Can Lead To Anxiety Relief?

by Dr. Craig April, Director of The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - Los Angeles

Panic Disorder can lead to anxiety relief?

How?

Panic Disorder can develop following a panic attack. Essentially, Panic Disorder is created by a new fear of the sensations felt during a panic attack. So it really becomes a "fear of fear". It becomes more ingrained through avoidance which, though meant to be protective, actually encourages most anxiety struggles.

But, Panic Disorder can lead to anxiety relief when it motivates those suffering to seek anxiety treatment. Many people (not all) who struggle with panic attacks have had a history of some anxiety symptoms that have been a barrier in some way unbeknownst to them.

Anxiety treatment can identify the impact anxiety has had on one's life while teaching techniques and skills to handle panic attacks and other anxiety symptoms so they don't continue to block freedom. So, in this way Panic Disorder can lead to true anxiety relief - if those suffering make the right choice to seek help.

Sometimes, what we label a problem can be an opportunity.
