Being fearful of flying is not uncommon; in fact, around 40 percent of people feel nervous about flying. This does not mean that you do not fly, but your flying experience may be one full of anxiety and apprehension. About 10% of the population however experience extreme anxiety about flying and are likely to need professional help to overcome these fears.
When people are fearful of flying it is often because they think something terrible is going to happen. They experience a range of physical symptoms, such as heart racing, sweaty palms, and nausea, and have a strong desire to avoid the fearful situation. Treatment for fear of flying aims to address all these aspects of fear: unhelpful thinking patterns, intense emotions, physical symptoms and behavioural response.
Working with Flight Experience, Mind Up supports people to face their fear of flying in a calm and thoughtful approach.
