With jumping, sometimes you do need to go a bit out of your comfort zone. Just jump at your comfortable height until you feel confident enough to jump higher. Maybe you could make the 18 inches you are currently comfortable at scarier. Put flowers or saddle pads on it, something to make it seem more difficult.
One thing I do is jump stuff that I don't know the height of. When I fox hunt I'll jump 3'6" - 4' and not even know it until the person who set up the jump tells. Just do things at your own pace until you feel ready.
