Treatment for anxiety and panic attacks

Help anxiety and panic attacks using drug-free treatment for anxiety.

Zone Psychology has been treating patients with anxiety and panic disorder for over 15 years with our neurofeedback treatment for anxiety. Anxiety is a normal part of life but becomes a problem when it gets in the way of daily living. For example, patients may suffer from persistent or extreme symptoms such as uncontrollable worry, intense fear, difficulty concentrating, problems sleeping or edginess.

There are several causes of anxiety including environmental stress, genetics, medical conditions or brain chemistry. Other factors are environmental and life stressors that cause our bodies to become overloaded and overstimulated. As a result, this sometimes causes brainwaves to become abnormal too.

Neurofeedback treatment for anxiety has been shown to help anxiety by normalizing brainwaves into a healthy pattern. Here at Zone Psychology, we use BrainCore Neurofeedback, a state of the art, non-intrusive, and drugless method to identify and treat anxiety and panic disorders.

How Does Anxiety Medication Work?

Standard anxiety medications work to stimulate the production of serotonin – the “feel good” neurotransmitter. Doctors may prescribe a treatment of serotonin re-uptake inhibitors or anti-depressants to people suffering from anxiety. Short term, these meds are effective for helping patients feel better but don’t correct the underlying cause of anxiety.

Also, there is a risk that these medications may impact brainwave patterns in the long run, which can lead to even more symptoms of anxiety.

How Does Mindfulness Help Anxiety?

Mindfulness is the practice of purposefully becoming a neutral observer to our thoughts, feelings and sensations by recognizing their impermanence and living in the present moment, non-judgementally, with self-compassion. This practice allows us to dis-identify with negative thought patterns by increasing our awareness and helping us learn how to respond versus react to difficult thoughts, feelings and sensations by teaching us tools we can learn and use daily.

It is a learning modality designed to retrain abnormal brainwave patterns using a system of audio and visual feedback. Neurofeedback is safe, long-lasting and has no side effects.
