Fear of Flying?
Do you dream of Barbados but settle for Bournemouth? If so, you’re not alone. Fear of flying is a surprisingly common problem which can severely limit your horizons, be it for business or pleasure. However, hypnosis can tackle the fear of flying psychologically, and quickly and easily help you overcome your fear by helping you to become more confident about flying.
It is estimated that up to one in ten people suffers from a fear of flying, yet air travel is increasingly becoming an everyday means of travel for many, and an essential part of our work and personal lives. Many people find that their children have a fear of flying.
The fear of flying, also known as aerophobia or aviophobia, is caused by the unconscious part of your mind warning you that it’s dangerous to get on a plane. This would be appropriate if the plane was missing a wing or obviously not in a condition to fly. However, in the case of a flying phobia, that protection mechanism which is meant to keep you safe has become over-sensitive and is now a problem. Many people have already used hypnosis to not only overcome fear of flying, but have also learnt to look forward to flying and to enjoy it!
Can Hypnosis actually cure my fear?
One of the keys to overcoming your fear is relaxation. Hypnotherapy will teach you relaxation skills that can become automatic when practiced and perfected. You can do this for yourself! Self-hypnosis is a skill you can learn which will help you to create your own calm, focused state of awareness whenever you need to. Hypnotherapy can help you to learn a new pattern of behaviour. In the past, you used to dread flying or even boarding a plane – in the future you can simply relax and start to enjoy the freedom of flying.
