Hi there.

Focusing on your breathing technique may be a useful way for you to prevent a panic attack happening. You can do this by inhaling for 4 seconds, holding your breath for 4 seconds, exhaling for 4 seconds and repeating till you feel more calmer.

Give it a go and see if it works for you.

Hoping this helps.
Take care and best wishes.

This can be impractical depending on your location when you feel one coming on, but my counsellor gave me this little trick and so far it’s worked:
Run some freezing (like, slightly painfully cold) water over your wrists. I don’t know why it works exactly but it does; I guess the cold must act as a shock that distracts you from your panic attack or something.
Obviously it requires you having the ability to run to a sink or something, so isn’t super practical in public :/
