Our expert says:
Firstly, maybe most important of all - don't panic, yourself ! Don't get alarmed and too anxious personally, as this only inflates his/her anxiety. A panic attack is unpleasant to experience, but fortunately, is not usually harmful. Just as your own anxiety can inflate his, so your own calmness and confidence can help to relieve his anxiety.
ANd the other important thing to do is to ensure that he gets proper treatment for his anxiety. Whether privately or from a provincial clinic, effecive treatment is available, both in terms of medication ( some for long-term benefits, some for more immediate relief ) and CBT style counselling, can help greatly.
