Quick way to beat my fear of flying
While I see clients all year round with a fear of flying i see a big jump coming up to the summer holidays. this is normal as more people fly at that time of year, well at least where I’m from. In Ireland there is no need for internal flights, so summertime is the peak time.
While some fears of flying may start after some sort of accident in the air, the vast majority of the ones I’ve seen come from something else. Some people are claustrophobic, the idea of been stuck with no way out is terrifying. Some people are or feel they are forced into going on a holiday with friends and family and feel trapped with no way out.
Claustrophobia, social anxiety and you have seen so many flights crash on the media which is a visual repetition and authority proof of what can happen. Plus, on top of that each case can be slightly different but a feeling of being trapped, powerless, out of your control will play a part.
In hypnosis we find the problem, reframe it, change it or give it a different meaning while including positive affirmations. What this does is change the feeling associated with flying. Basically, when you think of flying a different feeling is present, so your experience of flying is different.
Fear of flying is a phobia that keeps people from getting onto airplanes and heading where they need to be. It is something that can afflict a person for many years and usually there is no rhyme or reason to why it impacts a certain person. It is simply a mental block that keeps people from rationally thinking about flying in an airplane.
This can be a particularly devastating problem for people who are in business, as flying across the world has become a very important part of the business landscape. Maybe you need to head across the ocean to close a business deal. Maybe you must travel a long distance to see a sick family member. Whatever the case may be, it is always nice to have the option of flying.
Fear of flying is a common thing. In fact, many people suffer from anxiety when it comes to flying in an airplane. The problem occurs when that bit of anxiety turns into a lot of anxiety and you can no longer function while flying in an airplane.
At that point, fear can occur when a person goes to get on a plane, or it might even cause them to stay home. This is something that can be fixed, but it takes some mental conditioning. It takes a change in thinking in order to achieve the goal of chasing away the fear of flying.
A complete change in mindset about flying and airplanes is something that can be achieved through hypnosis. As a practicing hypnotherapist, I have seen my share of people overcome different mentally based problems. Things like smoking, alcoholism, and gambling addiction can be cured with hypnosis and so can a fear of flying.
Many people think that hypnotherapy is simply something you see out on a stage in Las Vegas. This is short-changing the process a whole lot. Though it might seem like magic, hypnosis is a treatment that enables people to calm down and let good thoughts replace those ill thoughts. You would be surprised with the number of things that hypnosis can cure.
If you are struggling with fear of flying and you see no other solution to cure this fear, then consider hypnosis.
