I bought the Linden Method. It's quite good as it makes 'simple' sense of panic and has a few good tips. I wouldn't feel it's the answer to everything but it's not a waste of money.That's in my opinion anyway.
I now believe that when your frame of mind is at the right stage the panic and anxiety eases off, kind of like 'when the time is right'. Some methods tell you to fight the panic, other methods say to let it 'flow over you', so it can be very confusing.
I think I've just discovered the answer this week-well,it worked for me...
When you get that familiar feeling of panic,first stop it abruptly, then say "ok now you can come at me", then stop it and start it again and so on.Then at another time when you're calm, try to bring up a fearful thought and go through the same process.I tried this for the first time today and ended up being able to take a journey to a place I couldn't go for the past 4 years! I think it worked because I
was deciding how the thoughts were handled by my mind and I felt in control. I feel sooo good today!
Hope this is some help.
