How often do friends and family do their best to persuade you to share their holiday, but find yourself left behind due to your travel phobia? As much as you would like to join them, overwhelming anxiety simply at the thought of leaving the safety of a familiar environment can cause you to avoid travelling whenever possible. Hypnotherapy with Jonathan at the Conway Practice can help you to overcome your travel phobias, including a fear of flying *
Hypnosis is a safe and deeply relaxing therapeutic method, during which the pathway to the subconscious mind is more receptive and open to positive suggestion.* In identifying the source of your fears, change can be introduced at the core level.* Phobias are are generally linked to an incident in the past, which you may not be consciously aware of and has become a pattern of learned behaviour. Contrary to what many might think, this is often not as simple as being afraid of crashing and other factors are often involved.
You may for instance feel uncomfortable at being seated next to a stranger for a considerable period of time and are concerned that you may embarrass yourself if you panic during the flight. Social anxiety frequently has a part to play in travel phobias and can be triggered even at the anticipation of being held in a queue at a crowded airport.
There is also the factor that you may become overly anxious if you feel you are forced to trust others to get you safely to your destination. This can even be evident if you are in the passenger seat during a car or train journey and are not the driver. In the past you may have found the courage to board a plane and then spent the time away dreading the return journey. A fear of flying or other travel phobias can not only be self-limiting in your personal life but may also have an adverse affect professionally if you avoid travelling for business commitments.
During hypnosis, the origins of your fears can be traced, helping to you deal with your anxiety by introducing new coping strategies.* Positive visualisation and relaxation techniques can be applied whenever you find yourself in a stressful situation. Help to overcome your fear of travelling with hypnotherapy has the potential to open up a whole new world in which you relax and enjoy the journey.*
