Several factors, such as other phobias or fears trigger fear of flying. Some of these fears include fear of heights (Acrophobia), fear of crashing, fear of enclosed spaces (Claustrophobia), fear of water bodies, (planes fly above them), fear of hijacks and terrorism among others.
Other factors that contribute to fear of flying include motion sickness or past traumatizing air travel experiences.
You know that, logically speaking, flying is a safe thing to do. But intense fear simply takes over even as you think about it. This feeling is not logical. It is emotional and it is automatic. It just happens.
This tells us something very important. This fear, this phobia (like all phobias), is triggered and powered from within the subconscious mind. It is not consciously and logically driven. No amount of logic will therefore overcome fear of flying. You have to find a way to get into the workings of your subconscious mind to find those phobia triggers and relieve them.
Hypnosis provides an ideal method to do just this as it focuses on dealing with the root cause of the problem, which in the case of fear of flying usually has very little or nothing to do with air travel.
In using hypnotherapy to treat fear of flying, I work with your subconscious to uncover the original causes of the fear and then help your subconscious to understand that flying does not pose a threat.
In this way I can make flying a pleasant, or at the very worst, boring, experience for you.
