Panic attacks are awful, they sneak up on us in the worst moments and make us feel overwhelmed by an invisible fear. In today's episode we are going to talk through the psychology of panic attacks including: 



  • Why they occur?

  • Panic disorders vs. panic attacks 

  • The flight, fight, freeze or fawn response

  • The car alarm analogy 

  • The function of anxiety and panic
