Case Study: Overcoming Fear of Flying with RTT and Monika

Client’s Background:

John, a 35-year-old businessman, had a debilitating fear of flying that had been affecting his career and personal life. Despite his job requiring regular travel, he had been avoiding opportunities that would require flying, taking trains or driving for hours instead. His fear also affected his personal life, as he couldn’t join his family on holidays that required air travel.


The Intervention:

John reached out to Monika, a renowned RTT therapist and coach, for help. Monika began with an in-depth interview to understand John’s fear’s root cause. It emerged that a turbulent flight during his childhood had sparked this fear.

Monika suggested a series of RTT sessions tailored to John’s needs. The sessions aimed to help John understand his fear, reframe his traumatic childhood memory, and replace it with positive, empowering beliefs about flying.

The sessions involved deep relaxation techniques, followed by guided visualization exercises. Monika guided John back to the original event that had caused his fear and helped him understand that his fear was based on a child’s interpretation of the event.

She then helped him reframe this event, highlighting that turbulence is a normal part of flying and that pilots and crew are trained to handle it. Monika also used suggestion techniques to embed the idea that flying is safe and that John can handle it without fear.


Progress and Outcome:

John reported feeling more relaxed and less fearful after the first session. After several sessions, he felt ready to test his progress in real life. He booked a short flight and, to his delight, he found that he was able to handle the flight without panic.

John continued his sessions with Monika, and his confidence in flying grew. He started accepting business trips that required flying and even booked a holiday abroad with his family.

John credits Monika’s RTT therapy and coaching for helping him overcome his fear of flying. His career is now flourishing, and he enjoys a richer personal life, free from the constraints of his previous fear.


John’s case is a testament to the power of RTT therapy and coaching. With Monika’s help, he overcame a lifelong fear and transformed his life. Monika’s approach to understanding the root cause of the fear and reframing it allowed John to conquer his fear and regain control of his life.
