Fear of flying

CBT for fear of flying

The fear of flying is a well-known phenomenon. Statistics show that millions of people worldwide are afraid to fly! So you are certainly not alone. CBT effectively treats fear of flying, even when other treatments have failed. People have all kinds of worries and fears when flying. The fear of having a panic attack, losing control, going mad etc. A lot of people that I've treated often report that before the fear developed they used to love flying and many of them flew routinely and enjoyed the experience. Others report never having felt comfortable in a plane at all.
