25 Year Old Woman with Debilitating Panic Attacks

The following is a true account of a client that completed a series of SLIP Emotional Resilience Building sessions.

Overview:  25 year old woman off meds and symptom free after 10 years of suffering from daily panic attacks, anxiety, depression, and financially (from the inability to work full time due to her frequent and incapacitating panic attacks).

Problems & Symptoms

  • Low self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Had difficulty speaking up for herself
  • Often uncomfortable in groups and when meeting new people
  • Married but did not want to have kids because she felt all she could teach them "was to be anxious"
  • Living with her parents

Treatment Before SLIP-Emotional Resilience Building

  • On medications for anxiety and depression
  • In-person talk therapy for more than 10 years without resolution of her symptoms
  • Tried EMDR and group therapy

SLIP Emotional Resilience Building Experience

  • Treatment included a combindation of unmedicated, cannabis assisted, and ketamine assisted online sessions with weekly individualized emotional resilience building exercises
  • 18 consecutive weekly or biweekly sessions
  • Weaned completely off medications after 3 months
  • Continues to be free of anxiety, panic attacks and negative self-talk (18+ months)
  • Has not needed additional sessions or ketamine to maintain results

Transformational Moments

  • Resolution of core belief wounds (I'm not good enough) causing self-doubt and negative self-talk
  • Resolution of fear causing anxiety and panic attacks
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Becoming able to speak up for herself
  • Overcoming the fear of dying
  • Understanding how to work with her emotions to allow them to heal
  • Learning to trust herself
  • Understanding she could have kids because she no longer had anxiety
  • Enjoying the present moment

A Word About Anxiety

In our model, "anxiety" is not the focus of the sessions. It is a symptom of unresolved emotional wounds caused by intensely fearful experiences.

By helping clients heal their deep emotional wounds, they move beyond the limitations and stigma associated with their clinical diagnosis. When clients no longer feel bad because of intense anxiety, isolation and self-criticism, they become more grounded, confident, connected, and able to create a life they enjoy.
