Many people suffer very scary panic attacks that come on suddenly and just when you least want anyone else to know that something is wrong.
Having a panic attack and then feeling the anxiety that you may have another can make daily life change from a pleasurable experience to an ongoing nightmare. The Panic Away Program is a self-help approach to eliminating panic attacks and general anxiety. Does it really work?
What Is Panic Away?
Panic Away is a self-help program created by a qualified psychologist, Joe Barry under the pseudonym, Barry McDonagh. The program first came out in 2001 and has been updated several times since then to incorporate the latest findings in psychology.
Such has been its popularity, that it is now sold in 32 countries worldwide and has featured in TV programs across America.
A Bit Of History
When it first came out, Panic Away came in two versions: an e-book plus a Members Forum and a physical book that could be ordered through your local bookshop but didn’t include access to the Members Forum. This was because bookshops didn’t collect email addresses.
The Members Forum was and continues to be popular as a place to network, share information and get further support from like-minded people.
The most recent versions of the book, digital and physical, can both be ordered online and nowadays both come with free access to the Members Forum plus a full 8-week guarantee (more about that later).
What Do You Get?
Both versions contain exactly the same content. The physical version costs more because there are printing costs involved plus shipping (see below).
The digital (downloadable) version includes everything in the physical version plus access to the Members Forum plus a full 8-week guarantee. The physical version includes the 245 page book, a DVD and three CDs. Plus, when you order the physical book (currently on offer with a large discount) you can download the digital version immediately so you can start the program straight away while waiting for the physical book to arrive.
Does Panic Away Work?
The fact that it continues to sell well over the years in multiple countries suggests that it does work. According to the figures on the official website, the program has helped over 60,000 people learn how to end their anxiety problems fast. Of course, this doesn’t mean that it will always work for everyone and to ensure that anyone who buys the program gets a long enough time to try it out for themselves, there is an 8-week guarantee.
The testimonials that can be listened to on the website speak of the simplicity of the program, feelings of relief and happiness in being able to laugh again. It seems that this program works for a wide range of people, men and women, younger and older and addresses situations like travel and driving when a person can feel most at risk.
The 8-week guarantee ensures that you have time to put the program into practice and give it a reasonable chance of success.
How Does It Work?
The techniques in Panic Away are designed to allow the body to heal naturally. The body can heal naturally when we know how to get our anxious mind out of the way and allow the parasympathetic nervous system to come into play.
When this happens, a person can quickly begin to feel more like their old self again. We are ‘short-circuiting the panic loop and ending the fear of fear’.
What Do People Who Have Used The Program Say?
The Panic Away site contains many audio testimonials from people who have used the program. They make interesting listening.
One person reported immediate results. Another said that after reading the book for three days he started to feel better and that after reading the book for one month he realised that instead of having an attack every day as he had been used to, he had only experienced one attack during that month.
Many of these people reported that they had been suffering for years and had tried many different approaches, including medication. They had spent a lot of money but not been helped in any real way. Using this program enabled them to get their lives back.
A theme running through many of the testimonials is a sense of relief at being back to their old selves and feelings of confidence that even if they do have another attack, these people know exactly what to do to stop it fast. This thought alone seems to inhibit the onset of an attack.
The people providing the testimonials range from young to old. A woman of 20 reported seeing a bright future ahead of her, thanks to using the program. Another older woman reported that she was now able to start living the life she had previously only dreamed of for the past 50 years!
Professional Therapists Support The Program
The program is influenced by the pioneering work of two well-recognised authorities, Dr Victor Frankl and Dr Claire Weekes and has been commended by clinical psychologists for its innovative, insightful and practical advice.
If you do plan on buying the program
If you decide to buy the physical program, remember there will be shipping charges. These vary depending on where you live. Shipping charges at the time of writing are: USA=$7.75, Canada $8.95 Europe $14.95, Rest of World $19.95.
Both versions of the program, digital and physical, come with a full 8-week guarantee. This means that you can try the program for 8 weeks and if at the end of that time, you don’t see any results, you can ask for a full refund of your money. Barry explains this more fully in the short audio presentation on the website.
You can buy the program through Amazon but you will pay more. By buying it from the official website using the link below, you get it at a substantial discount.
Also remember, Panic Away won’t help you if you leave it gathering dust on your hard drive or your bookshelf! You must read the book, watch the DVD, listen to the CDs and apply the strategies and techniques. And the guarantee gives you eight full weeks to do this.
All well and good but will the program work for me?
Sorry but I can’t give you a definite yes or no because we are all different. The evidence that the program is soundly based and has helped many is shown in the numbers, the testimonials and the endorsements. I suggest you listen to a few of the testimonials on the website and make your own decision.

You are not alone
If you are experiencing a lot of anxiety in your life, know that you are not alone. Some people get very anxious about specific things, like air travel, for example. Others just find themselves worrying vaguely about almost everything in their lives.
Anxiety is a normal human response
One of the first things that can help you to feel less anxious is to realize that anxiety is a perfectly normal human response to potential danger. In fact, many studies have shown that as human beings, we are hard wired to pick up on all the negatives around us. Continue reading »
