Panic attacks 1: A counseling case study

In this episode, the first of five parts, counselor and author David Powlison begins to take us on a personal and highly-detailed journey through all the aspects of a counseling relationship. He introduces us to “Ann,” a woman who is experiencing extreme panic attacks as she “walks through the valley of the shadow of death.” David lays a foundation for “Ann” of reality: the reality of her situation and the equal reality of God’s loving care for her.
