If one experiences fear while flying one will describe oneself as having a fear of flying or a flying phobia. In practice a fear of flying may come from any fear associated with or experienced within an aeroplane. It is not necessary to understand the exact source of a fear of flying to overcome it but sometimes a possible origin of the fear is discovered during treatment.
My client Mark (not his real name) came to me expressing a fear of flying. After treatment he wrote me the following email.
Fear of Flying Cured -
“On a flight a few years back I had some form of panic attack out of the blue which was a terrifying experience. At the time I convinced myself it was a fear of flying, as that is what I had subconsciously associated it with. Every flight after the event got worse and worse until I was prescribed Valium and cognitive therapy to deal with the fear. The panic attack experience returned at various inappropriate moments in high rise buildings, lifts, escalators and potholes.
“My decision to seek assistance to [sic] with the problem was the best action I took, as the Valium made me nauseous and left me exhausted for hours.
“Stephen is a very easy person to talk and relax with, in the first session he talked me quietly into a hypnotic state and we explored where the fear originated from. Without question it was surreal as I drifted back through the pages of my mind in search of these feelings. After a few moments I could see myself as a child trapped head first behind a bed -
“Three days after my second session I flew to Spain, with wife and son, without Valium and absolutely chuffed to bits. I even enjoyed the flight and we have one of the worst landings imaginable -
“The phobias we suffer are irrational, therefore the events that ours minds have us believe are fictional and will not come to fruition.”
Normally, I advise you budget for four sessions to address a phobia but as you see from Mark’s experience, sometimes only one or two are required.
