Aired Wednesday, 15 May 2019, 8:00 PM ET
Are you afraid of flying? Does the thought of driving through a tunnel frighten you? What about getting into an elevator, being in a small, confined space or even exploring your closets? Are there situations that cause you panic, anxiety, claustrophobia and dread? If so, you are one of the estimated six million Americans who suffer from panic disorder. You may have sought relief with psychotherapy and even medications, only to find that these did not alleviate your symptoms. Is there another way of approaching this debilitating problem and opening your life to fully experiencing everything it has to offer?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Tom Bunn, says there is and you can achieve this in just ten days without drugs or doctors. Tom Bunn is a licensed therapist and a regular contributor to Psychology Today. He is a former U. S. Air Force Captain who flew the Air Force’s first supersonic jet fighter, the F-100. Following his service, he was an airline pilot during which time he began examining and addressing flight panic. His further work and research led him to a greater understanding of the neuro mechanisms of panic and anxiety and the development of his program. His website is panicfree.net and he joins me this week to discuss his new book, Panic Free: The Ten Day Program to End Panic, Anxiety and Claustrophobia.
