Manage your fear of flying with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
If you experience overwhelming anxiety when faced with air travel, hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice can help to overcome a fear of flying and other travel phobias, enabling you to enjoy the journey.* You may not be aware of the origin of your fear, which may well have been triggered by an insignificant incident or negative influence. During hypnosis it is easier to access the memories stored deeply within the sub-conscious and bring them to the surface where they can be recognised and dealt with.*
Contrary to common belief, a fear of flying often isn’t a fear of the aircraft crashing, but is often a combination of phobias including claustrophobia or social anxiety. It can also be related to feeling out of control and trusting a stranger unconditionally to get you to your destination. The awareness that it’s not going to be possible to stop the aeroplane and get off, is likely to only increase the level of anxiety. The increase in adrenalin, triggering the (ironically) ‘flight or fight’ reaction often starts well before boarding the aircraft as anticipatory anxiety. The thought of being in a large crowd in unfamiliar surroundings can provoke a feeling of panic well before arriving at the airport.
Your non-conscious mind may have been conditioned to believe that any unpleasant incident while travelling in the past will be repeated. Even something disconnected to personal experience such a disaster movie or a news report can condition the belief that you will have the same experience. During the hypnotherapy sessions Jonathan will help you not only determine how your discomfort started but also why it has continued to exist. Introducing new coping strategies including relaxation and controlled breathing techniques, will enable you to build on your natural resources and overcome your travel fears.*
