This excerpt from a testimonial from a client who feared flying again shows the merit in therapy:
“I was feeling great about going on holiday and very relaxed about the flight. In the morning I was a little anxious but then the taxi driver came to pick us up and I suddenly started to feel better. As we reached the airport I was feeling excited rather than anxious/nauseous as I would have been in the past. I managed to eat a snack at the airport and boarded the plane without event. The following 15 hours of flight went without event and I managed to both get some sleep and eat whilst on the plane. I would not go so far as to say I enjoyed the flight but I was no longer fearful of it.
Our actual holiday was wonderful and we have so many great memories from it. Not once did I feel anxious or nervous about the trip back home and when the day came to fly back the only thing I was feeling was disappointed that it was over so soon. I again boarded the plane and got home without event and am feeling very proud of myself.
Thanks for all your help – I could not have altered my thought processes without you.”
