Leads readers step-by-step with proven techniques that finally make it possible to conquer their fear of flying

You’ve tried to face your fear of flying, but the harder you try to control it, the worse it gets. This book teaches how to work constructively with your brain so you can address your anxiety in different ways that truly help you let go of the fear.

Packed with hands-on exercises, this book helps you better understand both the anticipatory anxiety prior to a flight as well as the fear experienced on board—and provides the tools needed to successfully fill the role of passenger, including:

• Questionnaires and fill-in-the-blanks
• Pre-flight checklists and practice flight itinerary
• In-flight panic journal and symptom graphs
• Symptom and response inventories
• Breathing and meditation exercises

Drawing from exposure therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, the methods in this book will help you:

• Understand how you became afraid
• Discard safety objects and behaviors
• Identify signal fears and false alarms
• Use the AWARE steps onboard the plane
• Recognize and respond to symptoms
• Restore your ability to fly and travel
