Family holidays are cancelled or changed, relatives and loved ones are not seen, job promotions are turned down, income is lost, wonderful experiences are thrown away for a silly irrational fear.

I will lay my cards on the table.
- I went through all the training to qualify as a pilot flying microlights.
I was a private pilot who owned a couple of aircraft in the past.
- Flown on my own.
- Got in to trouble.
- Even crashed one and walked away.
- Helped a good friend to build two that still fly safely.
Me with one of the aircraft I helped to build.
I have also panicked while flying and been very scared. I dealt with it and fixed it.
So what you have. Is a very experienced therapist who was also a pilot and admits to being frightened in an aircraft at times. Who learnt how to fix the problems I had about flying.
So just a bit different from the average therapist who may try and help you.
I have been there, done it, have the tee shirts and still love flying in all types of aircraft in all kinds of weather.
Down the years I have helped many to overcome their fear of flying (which often isn't, more of that later) even helping other pilots who lost their bottle and helped them to continue flying.
So now that you have an idea as to who may be helping you later, lets get back to this article.
Flying in a modern commercial aircraft is one of the safest ways to get around this planet.
How Safe is Flying? Detailed Statistics.
The People Up Front Know What They Are Doing.
So why do many still panic?
So why do millions of otherwise logical, rational and intelligent people have totally irrational fears of flying?
They turn in to frightened children at the thought of going on board an aircraft.
Down the years I have found that often the thoughts of a plane at thirty thousand feet, as they sit warm and dry, drinking something while watching a film is not what frightens them.
They are not afraid of flying it is other things that scare them.
We need to find out what is really causing the worry and panic and along the way let them know that they are doing it to themselves and teach them how to stop it. That's really being in control
Claustrophobia can play a role, being in a small cabin with three hundred other people.
Little room to move.
No option to get out or leave.
Stuck in there for one, three or ten hours.
Lack of control for the next few hours.
Of course learning how to truly be in control using EFTwill fix this one.
Acrophobia (fear of heights).
Worried about turbulence.
After 9/11 some frighten themselves with fear of terrorist attacks.
Real memories of injury in aircraft. It does happen life is like that.
Accidents do happen and there are no guarantee's in life apart from one day you will depart this life.
Memory's associated with flying in the past.
Sometimes it is not the aeroplanes fault. Hassles at the airport or a bad holiday, sitting next to a fat person, screaming kids on the plane, or something that happened around the time can get attached to flying.
It is all the associated things and pockets of emotions around the incident that need clearing.
Some people will use excuses as to the reason they won't fly. In many social situations you can get a lot of extra attention from being afraid of flying and can manipulate many people around you.
The above are just some of the reasons why many have worry, fear and anxiety, panic and sleepless nights about a planned trip.
A good therapist will ask the right questions and help you uncover the real reasons why you get scared thinking about an aeroplane and teach and help you to overcome it.
I use a mixture of hypnosis, NLP and EFT to help my clients to overcome what they often think is a fear of flying.
Sometimes it is real, often other reasons are the cause of the symptoms they are experiencing.
So if you are looking for an experienced therapist with thousands of hours experience who has been scared of flying and overcame his fears. Consider contacting me for effective help to overcome your problem.
The techniques you learn and skills you develop will also help you with other concerns you may have in your life.
If you do not face and defuse your fears they will continue to control you.
