Having a fear of flying (otherwise known as Aviophobia) can be extremely difficult and restricting. The world is becoming closer with the convenience of internet, telephones and air-travel, and in many circumstances flying is becoming a modern-day necessity. Close relatives immigrate, business opportunities demand travel to far off places and the wonders of the world are only a plane ticket and a few hours away.
While many people experience mild anxiety before a flight, those with Aviophobia experience overwhelming symptoms of stress and anxiety which commonly affect their functioning.
Fear of Flying is a specific phobia that affects millions of people worldwide. Fortunately there are various treatment options that can help conquer the fear that is keeping you grounded.
