A schoolboy from Weston-super-Mare who became stranded in Abu Dhabi for nearly 16 months because of his fear of flying is back home after being HYPNOTISED to overcome his phobia..
Twelve year old Joe Thompson moved to the Gulf state with his family in 2009 while his dad completed a work contract at a private hospital, but when he tried to fly home in June last year he was paralysed with fear - and refused to board a plane on four attempts.
It has cost his family £40,000 to stay in Abu Dhabi while they tried to overcome Joe's fear of flying. They even attempted to leave the country by boat and car but were blocked by visa complications.
Finally, after receiving three months of treatment from internationally-renowned hypnotherapist Russell Hemmings, Joe flew home to be greeted at Heathrow Airport by his mother Pauline who was forced to return to Britain last year to resume her job.
Earlier this year hypnotist Mr Hemmings, a British ex-pat living in Dubai, contacted them and offered to help Joe for free. Joe finally plucked up the courage to board a Quantas flight from Dubai to Heathrow at 1am on Monday - despite having a "meltdown" at the airport.
Accompanied by Mr Hemmings and his father, he held his nerve and touched down at 5.30am UK time after a seven-and-a-half hour flight.
Mr Thompson said: "There were some dicey moments before he boarded the flight because he started getting very distressed.
"With Russell’s help he managed to get him onto the plane but soon after take-off he got very upset again but Russell did his magic and all was good."Words cannot describe how happy we all are. It’s wonderful to be home again as a family."

Mr Dewani is facing charges there for allegedly arranging the murder of his wife Anni, who was shot dead on their honeymoon in November 2010. He denies any involvement in the killing but his lawyers say he is suffering from depression and too ill to be extradited.
South African authorities would make "an exception" for Bristol honeymoon murder accused Shrien Dewani by allowing him mainstream mental health treatment instead of sending him to a forensic unit, a court has heard.
