Two days to go

Two days to go until I fly to Ibiza with my family, I've not had as much time as I would have like to study, plan and practice my strategy for the flight but keep referring back to Saturdays course. I seem to keep fixating on the take off.. However I keep trying to concentrate on the here and now, the relaxation technique for the actual take off and reminding myself how an aeroplane is cushioned by the wind / air flow. I am very much… Continue

Book your Course NOW!

Hi there every one

I attended yesterday's course at Alton in Hampshire along with Ana, Chrissie and Diane. Arriving early we all met up for a coffee and had a chat about who we were and our reasons for attending the course. Keith and his lovely wife Viv were immediately easy to get to know and it soon felt like they were old friends!.

It was brilliant to see Ana get on the plane after 30 years of fear and I know she was absolutely 110% proud of…

Captain Keiths Course.......My day...

I am so pleased with myself.Having claimed the fear of flying, i can now claim the victory over the fear and say well done to myself.

When I arrived at the departure lounge Cafe,one of the other participants, Jo (there were 4 of us) asked me where i had come from i was so scared that i couldnt remember where i lived!!!

One of the big probs for me is the feeling of being shut of being trapped,i am very claustraphobic and over the years i have built up the fear…

This is my first blog!!

Hi everyone!

This is my first blog.

I am sooooo glad to have found this website. My husband bought me the "Flying without Fear" book and I have devoured it!!!!

My "in-laws" live in Mallorca (I live in Scotland). My mother and father in law died a couple of years ago and I am ashamed to say I wouldn't allow my son (who is now 12) to fly to see them. They died a couple of years ago and I now realise he missed out on seeing them because of MY fears.…

My fear of Flying

Hi all,

I just wanted to share my experience on this fear of flying that I am starting to overcome. I was a frequent and happy flyer till 4 years ago. I was on a plane to Hamburg and it was a bit windy and I felt like if the plane was falling. Of course it wasn't as I know now, but that was enough to trigger my first pannic attack and since then it has been going worse. The fact that I live abroad and that I associate flying with leaving the family behind wasn't helping either. I… Continue

Back home

Made it back home safe! Costa Rica was beautiful and worth all the anxiety that I pushed through to get there. Just remembering my breathing and all of the information on this site helped tremendously. Compared to the driving that we did in Costa Rica flying was the safest part.

Glad to be home,

I have now been getting into a lift and dont like it but can manage it by distracting myself and claiming the fear. Everytime i get a wave of panic i twang an elastic band round my wrist!

I have booked to go on one of Captain Keiths couses, and am due to go on it on the 21 august, am nervous…

Upcoming Costa Rica flight!

Wow, I'm so happy to have found this resource! I have been a nervous

flier for 15 years after an especially rough flight and "unscheduled"

landing (which I now know was all probably very safe). I struggle from

intense anticipatory anxiety and am struggling now as I leave for Costa

Rica (8 hour flight) in two days!

I'm practicing my breathing and positive thinking. I did some EMDR

therapy but don't know yet if that will help. Watching these videos of

take… Continue
