The treatment of
Kindt Clinics specializes in the treatment of fear and panic. On this page you can read more about the treatment of panic disorders at Kindt Clinics.
Symptoms of panic
During a panic attack you suffer from all kinds of physical symptoms: The mere thought 'I may have a panic attack soon' can evoke a panic attack. Sometimes people feel like they are having a heart attack, might faint, go mad, or even die; that is how strong the physical reaction is. That is why situations that could trigger a new panic attack are often avoided by people that have had a panic attack in the past.
The treatment at Kindt Clinics is suitable for certain forms of panic
Kindt Clinics was founded by Prof. Dr. Merel Kindt, from the University of Amsterdam. She developed the fast and effective Memrec method for the treatment of fear and panic.
Memrec is currently only suitable if the panic attacks occur in specific situations, for example in large crowds or in situations where you cannot easily escape.
Broad panic disorder?
The University of Amsterdam is conducting research into the Memrec method in people in whom panic continuously plays a role. Sometimes research participants are sought. View on www.psypoli.nl.
Panic treatment approach
The treatment of panic complaints is similar to the treatment of one phobia. Just as we confront people with a fear of dogs with a dog, it is necessary for people with panic complaints to confront them once with their fear: a panic attack. The panic attack should peak within a few minutes and then subside. The pill then helps to prevent the strong emotions from returning.
You will come back one or a few days after the treatment. We then check whether the treatment has been successful. In the first period after the treatment you can still feel anticipation fear, in other words: fear that the fear will return. The more you notice that that fear no longer turns into panic, the anticipation fear also disappears.
