“I flew from Chch to Auckland  and then on to the Cook Islands, which I had been dreading for weeks, and yes there was turbulence, I used the breathing techniques and the rationalisation. It worked really well and I didn't panic or get bad anxiety. I still have work to do but oh it was such an achievement from years of fear and avoidance.

“The audio is very pleasant to listen to. When she mentioned potentially needing to give blood to a loved one, or needing medical treatments in the future as motivation to want to get the phobia under control - that resonated a lot with me.”

“VR was good and easy to navigate. I found the listening modules effective and like how the VR provides a sense of familiarity with situations, making them seem more achievable in real life.”
