Anxiety and panic attacks can occur very suddenly and out of nowhere. A panic attack is a clearly delineated episode of intense fear and discomfort that usually lasts between a few minutes and half an hour. Psychotherapy is a proven method for overcoming anxiety. WePractice offers you a selection of experienced therapists in the heart of Zurich to help you overcome your anxiety.
Anxiety disorders often develop when life circumstances change negatively and stresses occur. This can be the case, for example, with a separation, the death of a relative, the diagnosis of an illness or even the loss of a job.
The first point of contact for anxiety disorders and panic attacks is usually the family doctor. He or she can rule out physical causes of the anxiety, such as hyperthyroidism, cardiac arrhythmia or asthma. If no physical causes for the anxiety can be identified, psychotherapy is recommended.
The sooner therapy to treat anxiety begins, the better the prospects that a chronic cycle of anxiety will not develop and that anxiety can be quickly overcome. Therapy also helps prevent further anxiety disorders as well as depression or addiction. We, therefore, recommend early diagnosis and treatment.
