Overcome a Fear for Flying with Hypnotherapy in Brighton

Hypnotherapy for Phobias at The Conway PracticeA fear of flying, also known as aerophobia, can stem from various factors, including subconscious prompts that intensify the anxiety associated with air travel. These triggers operate beneath our conscious awareness, often rooted in past experiences or innate fears. With help to overcome a fear of flying with hypnotherapy in Brighton at The Conway Practice these subconscious triggers will be explored, providing an insight into the complex nature of your phobic response.*

Subconsciously, you may associate flying with danger or a loss of control, heightening the fear response. Identifying the origin of your phobia during therapeutic intervention with hypnosis opens up the pathway to manage the ‘fight or flight’ response to stressful situations.* There might well be a combination of phobias, such as the fear of enclosed spaces, known as claustrophobia. Aeroplanes have limited space and being confined within a cabin for an extended period of time can evoke feelings of being trapped, triggering anxiety and panic.

Past traumatic experiences, such as a turbulent flight or seeing reports of aviation accidents, can imprint lasting fear in the subconscious. These memories can resurface during future flights, intensifying anxiety. The mind becomes hyper-vigilant to any signs of perceived imminent danger, perpetuating the fear of flying.

Furthermore, the lack of personal control while in an aeroplane can trigger fear. Passengers must rely on the expertise of the pilots and trust in the technology. For anyone who has a strong need for control or suffers from anxiety related to relinquishing control, flying can be particularly distressing. Unresolved fears can not only limit participation in holidays with friends and family, there can also be a negative impact on work-related travel. Hypnotherapy with Jonathan Conway will take a holistic approach to managing your phobia, with the introduction of new coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques to reduce your anxiety level prior to boarding the aircraft and during the flight.*
