The Panic Away program is Barry McDonagh’s best selling online training program for how to stop Panic Attacks and recover from Anxiety. The sales letter states that you will get full recovery from panic and GAD fast.
The good news is that this course promises a much different approach than the traditional methods of coping with anxiety and panic attacks. Which are not easy by the way. My personal experience has included feeling completely defeated (and broke) from traditional therapy and completely dependent (and helpless) on prescription medication.
That being the case, and with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) programs being such a widely recommended method of treating GAD and panic disorder (Panic Away is based on CBT), it’s worth looking at a new and better way to effectively manage panic attacks and get long term, permanent relief from the anxiety thoughts and disturbing feelings that go hand and hand with panic.
I have walked through every inch of the 274 page book and all video presentations as well as the upgraded package (which includes a 49 chapter introductory CD Rom, a 3 CD audio training program, and a 143 page book) and will now give you my personal Panic Away review…
The Panic Away Program Format
Panic Away is delivered immediately after purchase via email. I was given a link to a page with all the links for downloading. I received the following : the 147 page Panic Away book in pdf format, 3 video lessons, an order number to use for the $150 free coaching, access to the member forum within 48 hours, and 2 audio mp3’s: The 21-7 Technique Live and The 21-7 Technique for Driving.
I have to admit, I was very happy there was an upgrade option to get all the material in hard copy. It saved me from having to print everything out and assemble the pages into a 3 ring binder. I was still able to use the downloads until my package arrived in the mail, so in truth you can get started immediately.
You certainly don’t need to purchase the upgraded package like I did. The downloads are all you need. This was just my personal preference. I do like very much that the hard copy of the book is nice and small, making it very easy to carry around in my purse for quick reference 😉
It’s worth it to take the course step-by-step, start by viewing the video presentations in order, and read the book in its entirety. This keeps you moving in the right direction, doing the 3 Stages in the right order to get you exactly where you want to be.
While you might be tempted to skip around and try the 21-7 Technique right away –and I admit, I was 😉 — this is actually a huge mistake. Impatience is what feeds you directly into doubt and ultimately giving up this program.
The 3 Panic Away Presentations (or The Panic Away Introduction CD ROM, if you get the package upgrade) are extremely useful to get the ball rolling. I know for me, watching the presentations made it easier for me to sit down with the book. After years of suffering from panic disorder and social anxiety disorder, I am so very anxious to get better, and seeing the 21-7 Technique demonstrated on the presentations in video was just the thing I needed to really be able to understand and implement this technique myself.
All you need to get started then, is your email, to get the instant downloads.
Here is a short video that demonstrates the quality of the program (the videos you get are very good!)
Panic Away Review: The Program Stages
Panic Away is divided into 3 Stages. They contain the necessary information and training to keep you moving in the right direction (in the right order) so that you can get tangible and very quick relief from panic attacks as well as long term relief from general anxiety GAD. After all the goal of this course is complete recovery, not just a coping technique.
Stage One is application of the 21-7 Technique to stop panic attacks, and the main reason I initially purchased this course. I just wanted immediate relief, and could not even begin to think about the future. Once I began implementing the 21-7 Technique in my life, I got that relief, and I was soon ready for more, much more… And that is exactly what the next 2 stages address.
Stage Two includes a variety of useful exercises to release calm first into your mind and then into your body. Anxious thoughts cause the most distress and therefore are tackled first, to diffuse generalized anxiety, and allow your mind to rest. They break the vicious cycle of anxious thinking and help you to feel back to your normal self—in control of your thinking.
Once the anxious mind is calm, it’s time to look at the body. You are shown 5 different physical exercises to profoundly decrease anxiety and promote feelings of wellness and calm.
Here’s a breakdown of the physical exercises:
- Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
Stage Three teaches how to ensure long term recovery, called “Sealing Your Recovery” It teaches when to know you have fully recovered from your anxiety disorder. This step is crucial, because the road to recovery from panic and anxiety has setbacks. Here you will learn exactly what to expect and exactly what to do.
The short answer is YES. I am 40+ years old, and I have had anxiety attacks since age 7. I have literally spent years of my life being riddled with panic and anxiety.
I was diagnosed with panic disorder at age 24, and have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on psychiatrists, hypnotists, biofeedback, and other anxiety self help methods.
I bought Panic Away last week. The truth is, I’d seen it available online for years. Of course I was skeptical- especially from a purchase over the internet. I even saved the packaging to get my money back. But thankfully I did give myself some time to let the teachings sink in. And sink in they did…
I have been re-reading the book at night, listening to the CD’s in my car and practicing the 21-7 Technique every time I venture out. It is working. One day at a time it is working, and I am well on my way.
I can tell you I immediately liked Barry McDonagh and his gentle, reassuring voice and manner of writing. He tells us that our panic and anxiety is not a “disorder” but a behavioral condition that can easily be reversed. His approach is to talk to you as if he is right there with you, while you go through your recovery. He also highly endorses the teachings of my favorite anxiety self help author, the late Dr. Claire Weekes.
::Update: It is 17 months since I first purchased Panic Away, and it still helps me when I need it. The 21-7 Technique is a skill I can use for a lifetime. It is wonderful. ::
Know that the healing process will come. There are over 150,000 grateful users of Panic Away. This product had been around for over 9 years. I wish I had found it 9 years ago 😉
The only real requirement to succeeding with the Panic Away program is your personal commitment to read and watch the videos and apply what you’ve learned. If you neglect to do this, no matter what, you’ll fail – simply put.
The price today for the program is $67.95. What you get across the book and video trainings is WELL worth 67 dollars. It comes with a 100% money back guarantee if you don’t see results in a few days! There’s no real risk here, and the price is actually super low (when I was seeing a psychiatrist, I was paying $220 per 45 minute session).
But will I have to go off my meds?
No. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. In fact, if you are on meds (like me) the author actually congratulates you for going out and seeking medical help. He doesn’t downplay the importance and need of anti anxiety medications. What he does say clearly is that by using Panic Away, you may very well get to the point where you will want to discuss with your doctor how to reduce and ultimately eliminate the mediation. How refreshing! 🙂

I wish you peace,
p.s. I found the Panic Away program to be very easy to follow, and chock full of examples and really helpful ideas. Even if you have had panic attacks or GAD for years and feel you have little hope for a cure, you’ll quickly start feeling better and be well on the road to complete recovery in a matter of weeks!
I also really like the Members Forum. This is a very supportive and active community of people who are using this method and will help you every step along the way. Having bought the Panic Away program myself, I found that it kept me engaged and kept me moving forward in my personal recovery from panic attacks, panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. I am very grateful I found this program. Period.
