Fear of Flying

Just imagine what it would be like to be a cool, calm and confident flyer. With the help of hypnotherapy and NLP, after just one session, that's exactly what you'll become.

It's no surprise that so many people have a fear of flying. Even young birds, born with wings and a natural instinct to fly are nervous, so given we don't have wings and our natural instinct is to walk, it's no surprise that we're fearful of being on board a huge chunk of metal travelling at 35,000 feet and some 500 miles an hour!

And then there's the bombardment of frightening images from the media; the outrageous fantasies of Hollywood; the misconceptions of society in general; and, the antics of the airline staff themselves (cue the stewardess showing us all where the nearest exits are in case of an emergency!).

With all this in mind, it's amazing that any of us get on airplanes in the first place. But here's the scoop - from a rational and conscious perspective, we all understand and accept that flying is by far the safest mode of transport available, statistically even safer than riding a bike!

So why is it that so many people feel sick at just the thought of flying and dread forthcoming holidays or business trips? Well we could spend an hour or so on this one, but keeping it really simple, it's because fear, or more specifically a fear of flying, is an entirely unconscious reaction based on our conditioning - if we could control it with our conscious mind, we would, right?

Using Hypnotherapy and NLP, we will help you overcome your fear of flying and turn you into a cool, calm and confident flyer. Because these two treatments focus on retraining the unconscious mind, once treated you will be able to see the perceived threat or danger in a more rational, resourceful and often humorous way. Imagine that, the thought of flying no longer being scary, but rather something you can laugh at!

You see hypnosis and nlp bypass the conscious mind and create an alternative state of consciousness in which attention is focused away from the present reality. Rather like day dreaming, attention can then be focused towards particular images, thoughts, perceptions, feelings, motivations and behaviours which will help change your conditioned responses and learnt behaviours.
