Explore any potential underlying causes or triggers of your fear of flying. Discuss unresolved emotions or issues from the past. Learn how to recognise anticipatory anxiety. Develop a self-care plan to cope with triggers.
Learning Coping Strategies
Utilise new strategies to interrupt the cycle of fear and avoidance, including grounding techniques and progressive muscle relaxation. Learn about the role of mindfulness in managing anxiety and work on self-compassion.

Meet the Team
A simple and convenient way to access therapy online. It felt good to have my concerns listened to - my therapist really understood me and cared about my health.
I found the sessions were very beneficial. I have tried online therapy before but didn't find a good match. My ManageMinds therapist Ben was very knowledgeable and understanding of my issues and helped me work through them.
Thanks to ManageMinds for providing an affordable service that allows people to overcome their fears. I have suffered with anxiety for a long time and finally feel that I have the right therapist for me and I'm going in the right direction.
Really worth it! I worked with Fiona for 10 weeks and she was amazingly supportive. She listened well and made me feel comfortable. A massive thank you to her :)
ManageMinds helped me deal with a stressful issue in a very well-planned and agreeable timescale. The professional I worked with was very helpful and insightful. Will definitely use this service again if I feel overwhelmed.
I really recommend ManageMinds. Their customer service was excellent and they matched me with the right therapist in less than 24 hours. My sessions really helped to reduce my anxiety and I feel so much more confident now. Great experience!

What is a programme?
A ManageMinds programme combines one-to-one therapy with a range of useful worksheets and resources to effectively target specific mental health conditions. Each programme follows a specially-designed schedule that can be adjusted to meet your individual needs.
The programmes give you the power to overcome mental health struggles by providing you with a detailed understanding of the factors causing your condition, alongside a number of coping mechanisms and stress-reduction techniques to improve your wellbeing. They also include regular assessments to ensure trackable progress is being made.
Do I need to bring anything with me to the sessions?
Before the programme begins, you will receive a welcome pack that includes everything you need to know to prepare. It’s a good idea to establish a private room or space where you can do the therapy component of your programme. You will need a laptop (or similar device) with Zoom installed to complete the sessions.
We also suggest having a pen, notepad, tissues and soft drink on hand.
What if I want to talk about something that isn’t on the programme outline?
The programme outline should be viewed as a guide, rather than a strict curriculum. If you arrive at a session with specific issues you would like to discuss, you are more than welcome to do so. We understand that all of our clients are individuals, so your therapist will adapt the programme to meet your specific needs and wants.
Please note that if your circumstances require the programme to be significantly altered, you may not be able to complete everything listed on the original outline.
What if I need more than 6 sessions?
We believe that the programme of 6 sessions provides enough time and information for you to make significant improvements to your mental health. The programmes are also designed to equip you with coping techniques and self care plans that you can use well beyond your final session.
If, upon completing the programme, you feel that you would benefit from more time with a therapist, our team will be happy to arrange further sessions for you.
Can I do the programme in person rather than online?
No. All ManageMinds services are conducted online. We feel this provides clients with the most comfortable and convenient approach to therapy.
How quickly can I complete the programme?
This is a comprehensive programme that includes a lot of information and resources. To get the most out of it, we recommend that you do not complete more than one session a week. However, if you are eager to schedule sessions more frequently than this, you can discuss it with your therapist.
