Fear of flying

Fear of flying

Despite years of flying, my teenage son was petrified of getting on a plane. This was becoming a huge problem as we had planned a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Barbados, an 8- hour flight. We tried everything to reassure him. Even a pilot friend, who regularly flies the route, sent him reports from the flight deck to try and show him speed, times and direction, but to no avail. He contacted his grandparents and asked to stay with them instead. As parents, you always try and get your children to leave their comfort zone in order to gain life experiences. We felt like we had really 'hit a wall'. Louise took him on and over 4 weeks worked her magic on him. I felt completely trusting and at ease with him in her care. We went to the airport really unsure if he would go... but he did and had an amazing holiday. Thank you for dealing with a difficult teenager - he has every faith in you and trusts you implicitly. So much so, that he contacted you directly for “anger issues” and that journey is still progressing.
