Most psychiatrists or psychologists would be able to help you.

If you only fly occasionally, which I hope you do considering your problem, then you may want to just see your doctor to get a relaxant. Depending on the type you get, it can be mildly sedative (just enough to keep you relaxed), or can knock you out during the flight!

You are not alone in your fears. Turbulence also gives me the willies, and I do not suffer from motion sickness.

To overcome the fear, I try to understand the mechanics behind the turbulence, usually low pressure weather systems, and know that it will pass after 30 minutes or so.

For long haul flights, I break up the journey into segments. Maybe 7-8, and from experience of flying between Singapore and London for the past 20 years, i know which segments are usually turbulent or not. Then take them one at a time.

It may sound stupid, but this is my coping mechanism.
