Now that the restriction on air flights has been lifted you may be one of the many people who are missing the opportunity to enjoy a holiday outside of the UK due to a travel phobia. Help is available to overcome a fear of flying with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice where the origin of your anxiety will be explored.* This is a common fear and can be a combination of phobias which are not directly related to air travel.
During therapeutic intervention with hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise the subconscious triggers which result in an increase in your stress levels and the fight or flight response.* You may well start to feel anxious before arriving at the airport in the anticipation of facing the experience of a crowded concourse and waiting to board the aeroplane. This is far more than a slight feeling of nervousness and can manifest as a panic attack and other physical symptoms of extreme anxiety. You may have no conscious awareness of the origin to your fears and the phobia is likely to be linked to an experience in the past and have a combination of factors.
Aerophobia is frequently linked to an intense unease in being in a confined space with others especially strangers and having no opportunity to escape if you need to. A fear of flying isn’t solely about the aircraft crashing, although reading a report of an air accident or watching a disaster movie can leave a negative image imprinted within the subconscious. Although the anxiety experienced may be irrational, the threat is nevertheless perceived to be real. Hypnotherapy to manage a fear of flying takes a holistic approach in addressing any negative self-beliefs or behaviour.* New coping mechanisms can be put in place with calming and positive visualisation techniques to support you before and during your journey.*
