Matthias J Barker Podcast

25-10-2022 • 52 mins

In this latest episode, I'm joined once again by the incredible Dr. Steve Hayes to talk all about panic disorder.

If you aren't familiar with Dr. Hayes, he is the co-founder of the ACT Therapy model, also known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In this conversation we talk about:

  • His personal experience with panic, how it started, and what it's like now
  • Common sources of panic disorder and patterns of avoidance
  • How to approach panic attacks and what to consider if you are experiencing panic disorder

Make sure to check out Dr. Hayes's book called A Liberated Mind.
