Freedom to Fly
Freedom to Fly is a highly qualified professional service run by Elaine Iljon Foreman, treating people who have a fear of flying. DO YOU HAVE A FEAR OF FLYING? • Concerned that something may go wrong with the plane? • Hate turbulence and the changes in the sounds made by the plane? • Worried about being trapped? • Worried about not being able to get out? • Problems with not being in control? • Afraid of panicking and "losing it"? We can help. Flying is known to be the safest form of transport, is a fundamental part of modern life and vital to the travelling public, whether it be business trips or holiday destinations. Fear of flying is usually not a ‘fear of aeroplanes’ but a fear related to a ‘loss of control’. The fear of flying is a well-known phenomenon. Statistics show that 500 million people worldwide are afraid to fly! So you are certainly not along. Individual fears can include heights, turbulence, bad weather, and things happening to the plane, including terrorism, or fears of something happening to the person themselves – worries about claustrophobia, agoraphobia, making a fool of oneself, and having a panic attack are part of this group of fears. The ‘Freedom to Fly’ programme has a 95% success rate in overcoming flying fears and uses the highly successful and effective cognitive behaviour therapy.
