Panic disorder is a mental health condition characterized by sudden and intense periods of fear and anxiety, often accompanied by physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, and shortness of breath. This condition affects millions of people worldwide, and it can severely impact an individual’s quality of life if left untreated. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available for panic disorder, including cognitive therapy.

Cognitive therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to anxiety and other mental health conditions. This approach has been shown to be effective in the treatment of panic disorder, helping individuals to identify and challenge the thoughts and beliefs that trigger panic attacks.
