In brief: Social Phobia

Panic attacks due to new supervisor at work indicates anxiety for feeling judged or evaluated in your job.
If panic attacks only occur in this situation, you may be suffering of social phobia, a treatable anxiety disorder. See a psychotherapist specialized in cognitive-behavioral treatment of social phobia. Expected results are more effective confident social interactions.
