Two types of therapy are commonly used. One is Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on changing specific actions and uses many techniques to decrease or stop unwanted behavior. They use diaphragmatic breathing slow, deep breaths and exposive therapy gradually exposing them to their fears. The second one is Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, which teaches the patient to react differently to the situations and bodily sensations that trigger panic attacks and other symptoms. They learn to understand how their thinking patterns contribute to their symptoms. They also learn how to change their thoughts so the symptoms are less likely to occur.
