I don't know who is helping you with EFT. Sometimes EFT works immediately and sometimes layers need to be removed.
Panic and anxiety is also caused by a nutritional deficiency. Cut out all sugars, alcohol and go on a low fat diet. Get a good multivitamin multimineral plan and go on it. If you don't know what regimen to use, I can help yo with that.
And yes, you will need counselling to help you venture out. If someone is impatient with you, get another therapist.
