Hi there, my name is Greg and in this Panic Away review, I’m going to pull back the layers and really see if the Panic Away program does what it claims to do. See official site here.
Why should you listen to me? Because I’m a qualified therapist who has over 10 years of experience who has helped hundreds of people overcome panic and anxiety. I’ve been very privileged to be able to help people move forward with their lives and lead a better quality of life without their debilitating anxiety.
First a quick story…
I had a client who came to see me who was suffering 15 panic attacks day and night! Imagine that for a moment and ask yourself how on earth do you manage to get through the day? Part of the stress was caused by his job which happened to be a teacher who taught Chemistry (it’s no surprise considering the enormous amount of pressure teachers are placed under here in the UK).
He described himself as an ‘anxious person’. Someone who has always suffered from anxiety for as long as he could remember. He’d developed an obsession with making lists about everything. His anxiety had been getting worse and worse more recently and it was really starting to affect his performance as a teacher.
Fast forward 2 weeks and he was already noticing a dramatic reduction in the frequency and intensity of his attacks. In the end, his panic attacks has stopped. I was contacted by his partner who asked what on earth I’d done to him because now he was so relaxed, she couldn’t get him off the couch!
How did he do it? He accomplished this by learning how to reduce his anxiety and change his relationship and understanding about his panic attacks.
My Review: Here Are My Thoughts On The Panic Away Method
The Panic Away program aims to help you overcome general anxiety and panic attacks. It provides you with the tools and information that allow you to deal with attacks as they occur. As well as this, it provides a good understanding of the changes you need to make to your thinking and lifestyle that will help end panic and anxiety for good.
The main approach of Panic Away is based on pioneering scientific research carried out by two particular Doctors. In fact the main 21-7 technique is based on this research. I talk about this more later on in this post.
Why Do I Recommend Panic Away?
As somebody who has managed to help hundreds of people overcome anxiety in their lives, I have been in a privileged position to see first hand how powerful a natural approach can be to helping people move on with their lives.
One of the reasons I recommend the Panic Away program is because it utilises a completely natural approach for helping you take control of your anxiety. No medication is required at all.
Another thing I look out for, is to see how successful the method has been for those who have used the program before you. One of the strongest indicators to its success is the customer feedback. You can have a look at some of the testimonials here.
There are many other approaches that aim to help you overcome panic and anxiety which is great, but on the other hand which method can you trust? Many so called solutions have been written by unqualified and spurious authors who have had no personal experience or background whatsoever in the health industry. Many of them are get rich schemes which are here today and gone tomorrow.
Panic Away on the other hand has been around for quite a number of years, since 2001 in fact. It is well established. Barry Mcdonaugh, the author has spent a lot of time promoting his product across the world on a variety of TV shows which demonstrates how much he trusts and believes in his product. All of this lends itself really well to building a lot of credibility for the program.
Who Is The Creator Of Panic Away?
It’s always a good idea to find out a little more about the creator of such programs because I know there are many products on the internet that have been developed by people who seem to have absolutely no knowledge or experience whatsoever about the topic itself and are just out to make a quick buck.
So let’s place a spotlight on Joe Barry, otherwise known as Barry Joe McDonagh who is the creator of this downloadable e-book.
Whilst at college he developed a lot of anxiety and suffered from panic attacks. After spending some time searching for solutions he became frustrated with the conventional methods that were available to him.
This pursuit finally led to Barry publishing his program.Since 2001, Barry’s been on a bit of a mission to help as many people as he possibly can to deal with their anxiety-related issues.
In his own words…
“My goal is now to help you live a more fulfilled life ‘beyond anxiety’. Helping you to no longer let anxiety define who you are and what you are capable of.”
How does the Panic Away book work?
Panic Away uses a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, otherwise known as CBT. This is a pretty well known therapeutic approach. The core understanding is that our thoughts affect our emotions and behaviours. By changing the way you think, you change the way you feel and behave.
A lot of research has been carried out on this particular approach and is recommended as an effective way to help with a wide range of emotional problems by the mainstream health institutes such as the NHS in the United Kingdom.
The other lesser-known approach is something called Logotherapy. The main premise here is that people are motivated to find meaning in their life. No matter how difficult or trying your life might appear to be right now, there is always meaning to your life.
Does this work for everyone?
A very good question indeed! As with anything in life, nothing is guaranteed and very often your success is dependent on how much you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into it. Remember, we all have our own life stories and experiences. No two people are alike. So what you find may work for one person, may not work for another.
Any sales page has one purpose – and that’s to sell you something.
Unfortunately, much of the time it leads us to believe we can achieve something simply by pushing a button and “Tah-dah!”…your wishes have come true in the blink of an eye. And then when your hopes are dashed, you think it doesn’t work.
So let’s be realistic. This program isn’t going to get rid of your problems overnight. It may take a few days or a few weeks. It takes a little work to make it happen and if you’re not going to expect an overnight success, then you won’t be disappointed. Instead you’ll be better prepared.
Having said that, this program has helped thousands of people and is a very effective approach indeed. From my own personal experience, I will tell you that in order to overcome anxiety, you need to be patient and apply your new knowledge consistently.
What if it doesn’t work?
Barry Mcdonaugh offers an 8 week money back guarantee if for any reason you don’t find the Panic Away program working for you. If you don’t notice any positive changes within the first few days, you can apply for a full refund AND you get to keep the program. They’ve never refused a refund that’s within the guarantee period.
This is another good indicator in how much Barry believes in the efficacy of his own product.
What You Will Discover Inside Panic Away
The core belief of Panic Away is that we should not be afraid of the sensations and feelings of our anxiety. Instead of trying to move away from them, as might be encouraged by other forms of therapy, Joe Barry encourages people to move towards the experience.
In essence, to embrace the feelings and in this way enable you to change your perspective and your relationship with your anxiety.
This program is based on three stages:
- Stage 1 – Discover the power of the ‘One-Move‘ technique
- Stage 2 – Learn techniques to encourage a sense of physical and mental calm
- Stage 3 – Sealing the recovery
It’s about encouraging trust, acceptance and persistence.
All in all the Panic Away book contains over 70 chapters and includes topics that cover anxiety triggers, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), symptoms of anxiety attacks, as well as techniques that you can employee to encourage a sense of calm and the feeling of relaxation which includes the C.A.L.M approach and the “One Move” technique.
This is what is included in the program:
- Access to the Panic Away members area
- The Panic Away video recordings
- Panic Away audio recordings
- The digital version of the program
- Bonus videos
What techniques are included?
The entire goal of this course is to teach you how to overcome your anxiety, so you’ll be pleased to know that Barry provides a number of techniques that you can use to help alleviate and reduce your general anxiety levels.
You may have already come across the idea behind some of these techniques and so in that respect, they’re not entirely unique to the program.
These include things such as visualisation, breathing techniques and affirmations as well as ways of analysing your thoughts, based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
You’ll learn how to use the 21-7 Technique™ and One More technique. You’ll also discover the power of moving towards and embracing the sensations and feelings of anxiety rather than moving away from it. Many of these approaches are less well-known and it’s the combination of these techniques and bringing together Barry’s knowledge from a range of sources that is able to deliver a unique program to help you in your recovery.
Panic Away Pros & Cons
To be honest, I can’t find too many faults with this program but as with many things, there can always be improvements in one way or another. Nevertheless, I’ve listed some pros and cons of Panic Away below.
- You’ll discover things about anxiety you never knew about! Facts your doctors won’t even tell you about.
- You get a no-questions asked, 8 week money back guarantee.
- Barry’s passion is clear to see because of his first hand experience. This passion has helped him develop a very well thought out product.
- You won’t just be given the tools to help deal with a panic attack, but an approach that aims to end them for good.
- Can be used for most anxiety-related problems.
- It’s cheaper than seeing a therapist.
- You have to put in a little bit of elbow grease. It’s really up to you to ensure you take action.
- You don’t have one-to-one support when needed (although you do have access to the membership area where you can talk to others who have joined the course).
- The program uses CBT to help you make changes to your thinking. This requires effort, persistence and above all, consistency in order to form new habitual ways of thinking.
- The sales page is a little hypey!
Results People Have Had From Using Panic Away
As I mentioned earlier, a good indicator of how successful a product is, is the feedback from others who have used the program. Below are some of the results others have had. They provide a good insight into their first hand experiences using Panic Away and the changes they noticed.
I am not afraid anymore of having an attack – which is extraordinary! Always in the morning on the way to work at one particular place. Since practicing the One Move technique I feel I look forward to driving again. I am not afraid anymore of having an attack – which is extraordinary! -I cannot thank you enough.” – Kath –
Barry, your technique is amazing. I just wanted to thank you for helping me deal with this condition. My last 6 months have been just filled with constant worry. I would drive around anxious of what might happen, I was scared to go to work, and i was prohibiting myself from enjoying the outgoing life that I had once had.
– Justin –
The doctors would always tell me “it’s in your head.” I guess to a point it is in my head. People become overwhelmed with so much, and the anxiety and panic become worse. I have had so many hardships happen to me, and NOBODY cared.
This is the first time someone has ever given me something I could truly heal with. I wish there were ten million people likeyou on the face of the earth. If there were more people like you, so many people would be without these problems. – Dayna –
My Panic Away Conclusion
Whenever someone says they can cure a condition I treat that product with caution but I have to say that Joe Barry comes across as an extremely genuine person who is passionate about helping people overcome this debilitating problem.
As a therapist myself, as I read through the book, I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Joe Barry was saying.
It’s important to understand the effects of anxiety but as well as this I know that when my clients understand that the fight-or-flight response is just a normal, in-built defence mechanism that is instilled within us to keep us alive, it goes a very long way towards taking away any feelings of embarrassment and self-blame – essentially lifting a heavy weight off your shoulders.
If you take action starting today to reduce your anxiety levels, you WILL be making a very good decision and you’ll be one step closer towards helping reduce your anxiety and panic.
I highly recommend Panic Away. It’s helped a lot of people take back control over their lives and overcome this debilitating problem.
All the best on your road to a calmer, more relaxed life!
