And if you’re not truly phobic but still feel nervous about hitting the road, this blog’s for you too. Here’s to the happy travels that lie ahead of us as we conquer our fears.

If fear is your barrier to travel, this is your blog. It’s about finding a way to move beyond a life that’s too small for you. It’s about climbing over, dismantling, or ignoring the barriers that can keep you from walking boldly forward into the wide, wide world. It’s about tending your dreams, and living with purpose, and making your life as big as you can stretch it. It’s about stretching yourself.
Whether you’re dealing with a full-blown travel phobia or just feel a little nervous about stepping outside your comfort zone, From Fear to There is the ultimate guide for resolving your fears. Written by a professional counselor who is also a recovering hodophobe (fearful traveler), this manual will show you how to:
• Identify your default response (DR) to fear
• Learn why what you’ve tried in the past hasn’t worked
• Choose a “perfect fit” approach for overcoming your fears
• Understand popular, evidence-based treatment strategies
• Apply a step-by-step plan for putting your fears behind you
You’ll follow along as three anxious people take different routes to the same destination – a life unlimited by fear. Guided by the results of numerous clinical studies, they’ll show you how to develop effective anxiety-busting skills and integrate them into your life.
You’ll learn from their successes. You’ll learn from their mistakes. And when you reach the end of their roads, you’ll be prepared to gather up everything you’ve taken from their examples and strike off on your own. Get ready to pack your bags and kiss your travel fears goodbye!
