Fear of heights
Many people can feel a little uneasy when looking down from a great height. However, for some people this can be a terrifying experience. Physical symptoms of a phobia of heights include a shortness of breath, palpitations, nausea and panic.
If you have a fear of heights, you'll know how restrictive it can be in certain situations. It may prevent you from enjoying scenery, or views. It may also be a bigger inconvenience in your life and affect day to day tasks such as climbing up a ladder.
What's causing my height phobia?
Put simply, it is the sufferer's lack of emotional control when thinking about, or being in the presence of their feared stimulus: the huge amount of stress and anxiety they are creating by the WAY they are thinking about their feared object or event. People with phobias nearly always attribute their fear to the stimulus itself; most people suffering from a phobia know logically that their response is irrational and unjustified.
For example, a person with a fear of flying may know logically that it is the safest form of transport but still are terrified at the thought of it. How is this possible?
Most people don't look 'internally' at their own particular ways of thinking to try to understand or change their phobic response - and that's where the answer lays. Phobias and fears do not happen 'to us', but we create then with simple, specific cognitive processes. For example, we misuse our imagination to imagine the worst-case scenario which creates and maintains our fear response. If you then choose to avoid the feared stimulus - by telling yourself it's so scary that you can't even face it - this will have the effect of escalating your fear and increasing your sense of powerless in your emotional response to it.

You CAN overcome your fear of heights. Here's how...
The Thrive Programme® is a revolutionary and powerful training programme that helps you to truly understand yourself, your beliefs and your thinking styles that are causing your fear of heights. Once you have that insight, it can be very easy to think differently, change old patterns of behaviour and feel back in control of your thinking and emotions.
The Programme doesn't just teach you how to manage or reduce your fears - it equips you with the all the skills and resources you need to feel emotionally in control. Rather than teaching you to extinguish emotional fires, you'll learn how not to set them in the first place!
