The Fear of Flying

Whether you have never flown, or are highly anxious when you fly, be aware of the fact that you are not alone. More than 15 million people have the same problem. The good news is that fear of flying is treatable. The problem is sometimes based on a predisposition genetically and/ or is socially learned or reinforced. From a cognitive and behavioral approach, you can learn to fly without anxiety.

I have developed a 10 week program specifically designed to assist you in learning the skills to enjoy flying. In my program you fly ONLY when YOU feel ready to apply the techniques you will master as you progress through the program.

Most of the problems with “fear of flying” have to do with irrational thoughts which cause anxiety. This program is designed to alter your thinking pattern, i.e. “what if thinking”.

The thoughts listed below are common to the fearful flyer.

  1. What if the plane crashes?
  2. What if my children are raised without their parents?
  3. What if there is turbulence?
  4. What if terrorists take over the plane?
  5. What if I have a panic attack?
  6. What if I cannot control things?
  7. What if I feel claustrophobic?
  8. What if the pilot has a heart attack?
  9. What happens if something mechanically goes wrong with the plane?

The list goes on and on. If you or someone you know wants to learn how to really enjoy flying, give me a call at (248) 760-2571. Since Fear of Flying is classified as a Phobia, health insurance will cover this program in most cases.

I have over 25 years of experience working with individuals suffering from different forms of anxiety. We now know more about how to treat this problem then ever before. You can do it.
