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!
This is a great fear of flying hypnosis session.
Of course in reality, statistics show that flying is in fact one of the safest things you can do. Air travel remains statistically safer than crossing the road, and flying has been proven to be twenty five times safer than driving your own car. Hypnosis will help you to understand this at a deeper level, and to feel relaxed, protected and safe when flying.
One of the keys to overcoming your fear is relaxation. Hypnotherapy will teach you relaxation skills that can become automatic when practiced and perfected. And 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. Although hypnosis won't instantly cure your fear of flying, many successful clients would agree it could be the single most successful step you ever take.
Now all you have to do is dream of where you want to fly to next! We hope this fear of flying article has helped you on your way.
