  • Teenage course - fear of flying courses from Flying With Confidence

    About our Teenage course

    Is your child afraid to fly? We run two fear of flying courses specifically designed for children and young people depending on their age.  

    The teenager course is hosted by our professional counselling team, Donna Allright and Jane Whybrow, with over 40 years experience between them in helping young people and include input from a British Airways pilot. A DBS checked adult is present at all times. Our bespoke programme of interactive group work, education, self awareness and a variety of coping strategies and techniques have proved extremely successful for many years. It is our aim to demystify the technical aspects of air travel and empower young people to accept, reduce or completely overcome their individual fear or anxiety in a cultivated secure environment.

    These courses are yielding fantastic results. During the last three years we have had teenagers with an extremely wide range of different issues, but they have confronted their fear of flying on this amazing day. We boast an excellent success rate since we started these courses in 2012.

    Teenager's Course - aged 11 to 17.

    For older children and teenagers at secondary school aged 11 to 17 we run our full day Teenagers' Course, including a flight on a BA jet.

    The maximum number for the Teenagers' Course is capped at SIX, which has proven to work really well for the group. The teenagers will be participating in interactive sessions with our specialist counsellors, pilots, cabin crew and a psychologist. A parent or guardian (who should not have a fear of flying) is required to accompany the teenager on the flight, but will not participate in the sessions. Our experience has shown us that running the courses in this format has a far greater success rate for children in this age group.  

    We are hoping to run our next course at London Heathrow and the cost of the course and flights (one child plus one adult) is £625 including VAT. Our Flying with Confidence book is included in the price.

    So, if your son or daughter has a fear of flying, please register your interest and when the next course date is published call 01252 793250 for more information from our course counsellor who will be happy to discuss the course with you in detail. You are not able to book these courses online, and please refer to our terms and conditions for specific age group policies.
