Panic looks like this (at left).
Our definition: panic is the loss of presence of mind due to fear
Panic is a habit that got its start when a frightening experience occurred that was so painful, a person made the decision, "I never want to feel that again." Since then, she has "left" rather than feel it.
No one developed a habit to panic for a silly reason. It made all the sense in the world at the time the above decision was made. But it's painful. And now, you want more freedom. You've derived your safety from staying away from the situation. Now you want to get your safe-ty from yourself, rather than avoidance.
Present the problem and let's discuss how the 5 Circles can fix it.
