About Us

No Panic is a registered charity that helps and supports those living with Panic Attacks, Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders and other related anxiety disorders.
No Panic also provides support for the carers of people who suffer from anxiety disorders.

Unfortunately, health services in the UK are overstretched and have long waiting times, which despite the fact that over 75% of anxiety disorder sufferers do not even seek professional help of any kind!

No Panic believes each and every one of us will have a dip in our mental health at different times throughout our lives. Mental ill-health knows no class, gender, age or economic boundaries and can affect any one of us at any time. COVID-19 is further exacerbating this already alarming crisis.

No Panic provides crucial support that fills the gaps left by statutory services. Quite often people who contact No Panic have been waiting a long time for therapy or have been refused help as they do not fit the mandatory service criteria. No Panic offers support that can prevent certain situations from a reaching crisis point. We have the insight to know that no one treatment will work for an individual. Enabling choice is paramount in helping people to discover their own potential which educates them on how to personally manage their mental health.

Our guiding philosophy is that people can and do recover from mental health issues (however severe they may be), and go on to live lives of their own choosing if they are provided with tailored made needs. Our recovery programs use layperson Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and anxiety management as their base. Whilst no therapy guarantees success, this method has at the present time, the highest success rate.

All of our services are provided over the telephone or internet which provide enormous flexibility, comfort and confidentiality to those we support.

According to the UK Mental Health Foundation:

  • One in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
  • In the UK, 70 million days are lost from work each year due to mental ill health (i.e. anxiety, depression and stress related conditions) making it the leading cause of sickness absence.
  • 10% of children and young people (aged 5-16) have a clinically diagnosable mental health problem yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems do not receive intervention at a sufficiently early age.
“Don’t suffer alone, pick up the phone and let us help you break the chains of anxiety”

About 75% of anxiety disorder sufferers do not get professional help of any kind

  • Up to 5 million with Agoraphobia
  •  Up to 1 million with social phobias
