Re: A sudden fear of the floor
IMHO, fear is a mental fantasy about a negative outcome. Fear is a choice. Ask the student if they want to stay afraid. If they do, there is nothing you can do. If they don't, go back to basics (relax and breath), mentally rehearse a positive experience, and have them focus or distract the mind on anything else (sing, whistle, or humming is good and is processed by the other hemisphere of the brain).
