Frequently Asked Questions
Many people are afraid of heights, but if that fear causes you significant distress, or if it stops you being able to do things you want to, then you may suffer from height phobia.
Anyone who has a fear of heights can use this program successfully, regardless of your age, your location, your level of education and the severity of your fear. Our down to earth program will explain all the key psychological ideas in simple terms and give you detailed practical instructions for every step of the journey.
The main technique used in this program is called exposure. Exposure means gradually confronting the different things you fear in a safe and controlled way until you no longer feel afraid of them. With the unique “Find a Five” technique used in this program you will never have to face your worst nightmares- we will only ask you to face moderate or “five out of ten” fear levels. Research has shown that this is all that’s required to produce lasting change.
We will also look at some tips for identifying and changing the way you think, go through some imagery and visualization exercises, look at the ways mindfulness can help you accept and manage your emotions, and take a look at the role of self-compassion in reducing your fear. The benefits of this extra content will help you overcome your fear and may even leave you as a stronger and more secure person than you were before you developed your phobia!
The technique of exposure is the most widely accepted method for treating phobias and has a high success rate in treating all kinds of fears. As long as you stick to your exposure exercises and take the messages in this program to heart you should see a significant reduction in your symptoms.
Our program also contains detailed information on reasons why your fears might re-appear and what to do in each situation.
Qualified therapists and clinical psychologists can be very helpful in treating phobias and all other forms of anxiety. However, not everyone has access to a trained therapist- whether due to time & financial constraints or their location.
This program was designed with those people in mind, using the knowledge and experience of a team of leading clinical psychologists. The principles discussed in this book are identical to those you would get from a world-class therapist, and the program is structured in the same way a weekly face-to-face therapy session would be. So even if you can’t access a therapist you can get a virtually identical experience from this program.
