I have seen many patients presented to me with symptoms of panic disorder, e.g. fear of driving. Frequently, the focus of treatment is the anxiety treated with relaxation. Is that the correct focus? Relaxation is helpful but not always the correct way to address the problem. Patients are angry and suppress their feelings. Others are struggling with bitterness and vindictiveness. When one suppresses feelings, they accumulate producing tremulousness and thus, anxiety. This can often be misconstrued as panic disorder. This writer has found that a psychodynamic approach, assisting patients with expressing suppressed feelings, often diminishing anxiety, and then great coping begins, e.g. patients can drive again, thus fears dissipate. Treatment of the WHOLE person in their entirety often brings about a great outcome that is long lasting and aids in general coping with life stressors.
