I am excited to offer an in-person group in November to help people get control over their fear of flying before the day before Thanksgiving, which is the busiest flying day of the year.
By the way, if you are interested but cannot attend the November seminar, please email me to discuss whether individual telephone sessions might work for you instead.
Here’s the announcement that went out in a recent flyer.

Overcome Your Fear of Flying
A Seminar Series dedicated to providing you the tools and techniques to get you flying high
With the holidays rapidly approaching, many people are facing their upcoming air travel with dread. We are pleased to offer a series of three 90-minute classes focusing on a powerful new technique that has already helped many people around the world cope with — and often completely erase — their fear of flying.
In the classes we will use a powerful technique called EFT, or “tapping,” that involves tapping on acupressure points to release locked-in stress. Conventional approaches usually only manage to blunt the stress of fear of flying over the course of months, or even years, of work. Tapping can alleviate the fear in people of all ages in just a few hours or less.
We will work on different common aspects of a fear flying, like claustrophobia or feeling you are out of control, as well as the physical reactions people have like their heart pounding or their stomach clenching up. We will also work on reducing the fear specific memories of difficult flights may still bring up in you. Finally, we will go through all the steps involved in a flight, from buying the tickets to packing and driving to the airport through take-off and landing, using the technique on all the aspects of the flight that cause you stress.
In this seminar, you will learn the basic tapping technique to lower your stress immediately while on a flight, including some subtle tapping steps you can take in a cramped airplane seat without calling attention to yourself. In addition, many people get a significant reduction in their flying stress before they ever have to get on a plane, and some get over their fears completely. And when the fear is gone, it’s usually gone for good — no more relaxation techniques or medications needed.
Your Instructor, Nancy Linnerooth, has taught tapping to many individuals and groups. She has seen the great relief it has brought to many, and in some cases witnessed her clients’ immediate relief from their fears. As an example, after just one group session, a client went on several flights and found her usually quite severe anxiety was gone except for a bit of apprehension during turbulence, which she simply tapped away during the flight.
She is very excited about helping people get over these sometimes lifelong fears. It can really change lives!
