Flying is one of the safest forms of modern transport. There are statistically far less fatalities than travelling by car for example. One statistic suggests that ‘Americans’ have a 1 in 114 chance of dying in a car crash’. While the odds of dying in an aircraft accident are 1 in 9,821.
Why then, do so many people have problems around flying, such as anxiety attacks and flying phobias?
Is it the fact that the news and media tend to report more plane crashes? This is precisely because they are unusual!
Maybe it is also the feeling that you have no control over a flight. You are at the mercy of the pilot, the plane and the elements.
In any case, armed with the facts above you can at least know that on some level any fear you have is an irrational fear. It is brought on by your unconscious mind.
In this workshop, I look at the reasons and causes of a person’s flying phobia and offer some tools and interventions to help improve this limiting condition.
You will come away with at least a better understanding of your anxiety response and some ways to reduce it, or even get rid of it altogether.
