Cure A Fear of Flying

From a purely rational and logical 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? Why is it so many people resort to large quantities of alcohol or medication as a means to cope with the cute anxiety they feel. 

Well we could spend an hour or so on this one, but keeping it really simple, it's no surprise that so many people have a fear of flying - being on board a huge chunk of metal that weighs hundred of tonnes, travelling at 35,000 feet and some 500 miles an hour is not exactly a natural place for human being to be!

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. 

The good news however is that if you are struggling with an acute fear of flying, we can most certainly help.

I had tried many ways including the BA fear of flying course but nothing had been successful.... I felt the results immediately and went on a plane two months later with no problem.

Flying - With Video

Over the past decade or so, using a mix of Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) we’ve helped thousands of clients identify and deal with the root cause of their fear of flying and at the same time, to cultivate a much greater sense of physical relaxation, mental calmness, self-confidence and self-belief whenever they fly.

In the treatment of a fear of flying, it is important to understand that consciously trying to control fear through rational thought alone can prove to be extremely difficult. The reason is that what we focus on we tend to amplify, so trying to think our way out of a fear of flying can lead to us creating evermore anxiety provoking thoughts, which can only serve to increase the symptoms.

And many of our clients try the complete opposite of this strategy - they look to avoid the situation completely, by not flying. Of course, this in of itself can only exacerbate the problem by making the fear so much worse. 

The reason why we’re successful at helping clients to resolve their fear of flying is because we work across both the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind.

Through Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), we work with a clients unconscious mind, or more specifically their belief system, memory and imagination. 

Through the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we also work at a rational and logical level and the combination of the two can be very powerful indeed.

Add a little wisdom and that most scarce of resources within the therapeutic environment - common sense - and we can help you ensure that all that old unwanted fear that has had so much control over you, comfortably becomes a thing of the past.

For most clients we would look to see them between two and three times - appointments last up to 2 hours with costs ranging from £185 - £300 per session depending on which therapist they are working with.
