Anxiety/Panic Disorder Support Group
Gabriella Philippou, 3 Parnithos Aglantzia 2102 Nicosia
The Anxiety/Panic Disorder Support Group is primarily destined to support people who are experiencing anxiety and other related disorders. In a milieu characterised by confidentiality, self-respect, mutual respect, mutual support, empathic listening and unconditional positive regard, as the Facilitator, I assist group members to accept the fact that, even though anxiety attacks can be powerful physical, psychological and emotional experiences, they occur for specific reasons. Understanding these reasons can help them exercise control over anxiety attacks rather than the other way around. Group members are provided with educational material which helps them to understand the reasons for their anxiety. Furthermore, I encourage them to share experiences which leads them to realise that they are not alone. Also, I teach them different techniques which enable them to handle their problems and achieve peace of mind. Solving a problem always begins with the recognition and acknowledgement of the problem. Quite often, people that suffer from anxiety attacks are not aware of the situation they are in. Although the list is not exhaustive, I provide below the characteristics of anxiety attacks and the symptoms that accompany them.
