Elaine Iljon Foreman established ‘Freedom to Fly’ in 1989 and serves both corporate referrals and individuals seeking help. She is currently expanding her independent psychological practice and additionally targeting the area of well being, rather than the absence of distress. Her continued research into the treatment of anxiety since 1976, has led to many invitations to present her findings at conferences in Europe, the Americas, Australia and the Far East. Lectures and workshops are given both nationally and internationally on an ongoing basis to professional and self help audiences along with regular TV and radio interviews.
Elaine Iljon Foreman has published extensively and is the principle author of 3 Dummies series books: Overcoming Anxiety, Depression, and the Anxiety and Depression Workbook, and has additional book publications such as, Fly Away Fear, a self help book to overcome fear of flying, and a Practical Guide to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
Elaine Iljon Foreman has developed a specialist treatment intervention for flying anxieties and fears. Treatment consists of either:
A single session examining the nature of the problem and development of a bespoke treatment programme. This is for people who have already booked their flight.
This includes ‘The Navigator’ and is followed by a treatment session with Elaine accompanying you on a scheduled day return flight to Europe.
Elaine also provides effective psychological treatment for a range of common psychological problems which include anxiety, depression, and catastrophic thinking, in clinics located in North West London, Sutton and West Sussex.
She undertakes continuous professional development to ensure her skills are kept up to date.
Elaine specialises in overcoming travel and flying fears, along with many phobias, anxiety, catastrophic thinking and panic related problems.
