Do you dread the thought of getting on a plane? Do you worry about turbulence, crashes, or other things that could go wrong? If so, you’re not alone. It is estimated that around one person in ten has a fear of flying, also known as aerophobia or aviophobia.
Fear of flying can be debilitating. It can prevent you from taking vacations, visiting family and friends, or even pursuing your career. But there is hope. Hypnotherapy can help you overcome your fear of flying and enjoy the travel throughout the world.
How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy helps you attain a state of deep relaxation. During hypnosis, your mind is more open to new ideas and suggestions. This makes it possible for you to change negative thought patterns and beliefs that are contributing to your fear of flying.
Hypnotherapy can also help you to develop coping skills for dealing with the anxiety of flying. For example, you may learn relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing and visualisation, that you can use to calm yourself down if you start to feel anxious during a flight.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of hypnotherapy sessions you need will vary depending on the severity of your fear of flying. In most cases, between 2 and 4 sessions are sufficient. However, some people may need more sessions to achieve the desired results.
What should I do?
The best timing for hypnotherapy is a few weeks before you plan to fly. If you’re ready to overcome your fear of flying and enjoy the freedom of travel, I encourage you to contact me for a consultation. I would be happy to discuss your individual needs and help you create a personalised hypnotherapy plan.
