Imagine flying without fear…
Have you always been afraid on flying? Perhaps you used to fly confidently but suddenly developed a phobia or perhaps you are yet to board a plane and fly at all. Does flying make you feel out of control or uncomfortable in a confined space? It has been estimated that about one in five people in the UK are afraid of flying so if you are reading this you are not alone. In fact, it is probably one of the most common problems presented in a hypnotherapy practice alongside the fear of public speaking…
Anyone can develop a fear of flying. It is a learned response. But the good news is that you can unlearn the response using hypnotherapy and NLP just as quickly and easily too. So why wait?If you’ve been putting off booking that holiday, or making excuses not to go on that business trip, maybe now is the time to face your fear and book an appointment with the Wisdom Room. Then book your ticket!
One of the most common issues people have around flying is imagining that something is going to happen to the plane itself which is ironic of course because flying (as you probably already know) is actually one of the safest and most regulated forms of transport. (Safer than driving or rail links.)
However, statistics and figures that prove airline transportation to be safe appeal to our rational mind. Whereas, it’s clear that worry about flying seems to bypass those faculties of logic and go directly to our emotions. Much like anything in life, if you are looking for it you will always be able to find another article about some “near miss” that will reinforce your belief.
People who are scared of flying often also complain of feelings of apprehension in advance of the flight. Some people may suffer sleepless nights, days or weeks in advance. And many people seek to control their anxiety using alcohol or prescribed sedatives which can cause their own problems and side-affects. Symptoms of high anxiety are very common. And fear of the fear is usually present before
Here at the Wisdom Room, we use a combination of Integrated Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help you overcome your anxiety by simultaneously retraining both the conscious and unconscious parts of your mind. As a result you should be left feelingphysically more relaxed, mentally calmer and altogether more confident and positive about air travel in the future.
Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Remember that facing your fear and making a change is the beginning of the path to wisdom and we are here to give you a helping hand.
