How to stop/prevent panic attacks?

Recently I got put into an online school.

I thought that being put into an online school would help, considering the only "panic attacks" I've had were in school, but sitting there all day really doesn't help. It feels like it's getting worse. It sucks because I wanted to join my community theatre but now I'm too scared to. Its like the more I focus on trying to breathe, even when i'm not having trouble breathing, I feel like i'm going to have a panic attack, or I actually do. Any ideas or ways to stop them? I've seen a doctor but they recommended me to a therapist before they put me on anything. But I'd rather not take pills all the time.
