Gripped? 7 Top Tips on how to beat your fear of heights

The amygdala is the small part of your brain which controls emotions, the fight or flight response (fear) and impulsive behaviour. When you’re on the edge and fearing for your life it’s this acorn sized bit of your brain that’s doing the work … but it’s your cerebral cortex (the clever, rational thinking part) that needs to be. This is how …

1. Start breathing – stop holding your breath (you will be). Take TEN deep breaths. Count them in and out.

2. Distract your brain, start forcing it to think. You really really must do this. For example try recalling your mobile phone number in reverse. This will help to engage your your rational thinking cortex, and this will begin to calm you down.

3. Visualise someone you know (or James Bond for me) who is really confident climbing or with heights – pretend you are them. (I hum the James Bond tune too).

4. Visualise yourself at the top or at a safe place and see how much nicer that will be for you.

5. Keep that cortex working – tell yourself your mobile phone number in reverse again.

6. Thinking head now engaged – start thinking and looking. Find placements for your feet, and your hands will take care of themselves.

7. Once out of immediate trouble, take the time then to plan each step to the next safe platform.
