“To overcome a fear, here’s all you have to do: realize the fear is there, and do the action you fear anyway.”
— Peter McWilliams
With hypnosis to help overcome your fear of flying, you can learn to enjoy flying, maybe again or for the first time.
Visualisation techniques are used to help you experience flying in a state where you anxiety and panic are not taking over.
How many times have you relied on alcohol or prescription medication to help get through the flight?
Then you find that your holiday is ruined as the anxiety in relation to the flying begins midway through your holiday and as the years have gone by, your time of enjoyment is actually reducing.
Perhaps you don’t fly at all. No amount of pushing from family and friends will persuade you otherwise that flying is something you must do. If this is true in your case, then send them to me to accept you as you are!
So what’s happening:
- your subconscious mind primary function is to protect you. So the idea of flying in a cylinder is not appealing – where is your escape. At least on a boat you could swim to safety in the event of an emergency (the fact that you may not be able to swim does not factor in your subconscious) but it wants an outcome. This is true for people who would tend to be cautious.
- I have noticed that flying, because it is not an everyday occurrence, can be used to funnel general anxieties that cannot be realised in everyday life. You can hold it together until flying. There was no identifying event to cause panic and anxiety so it can be a totally unrelated to flying trigger that now causes a fear of flying.
- Yet more clients would have control issues – you cannot direct the plane, you cannot see what the pilot sees. You have to depend on someone else.
This can be very hard but using hypnosis and NLP to help overcome fear of flying, you can “learn” to accept that sometime someone else is capable of being in control.
In a typical session, your panic and anxiety are simulated in the safety of the office to give you the opportunity to control what is going on inside you.
This is important so that you know you can control the rise in panic and identify when exactly it begins. This varies from person to person.
Let’s look at the word fear – False Expectation Appearing Real.
Hypnosis gives you the control to manage your anxiety levels in relation to fear of flying so that you can tolerate a flight with a view to perhaps enjoying it! Flying does not need to be full of anxiety and upset for you so let hypnosis help you to overcome your fear of flying.
