Are you looking for a way to get over your fear of flying easily and quickly?  We are here to help. This article will help you understand what’s going on in your mind and how hypnosis can help you get over your fear. 

Plane taking off
Fear of flying is very common. After a hypnosis session you’ll be able to fly with ease.

Do you dread going to the airport?  Perhaps the very thought of sitting on a plane fills you with pure fear and anxiety for days, months or weeks before the flight, perhaps it’s the safety aspects or being up so high. Do you want to go on holiday or need to use air travel for work? 

You are not alone.

Fear of flying, aviophobia or aerophobia is very common. The severity can vary from person to person, but one thing is sure, you’re certainly not alone and the good news is  you can train your mind to overcome the fear. 

We can help you do this using hypnosis, usually in just one to three sessions. Best of all, you don’t even need to leave the house to do it. Boost Hypnosis offers online hypnosis which are personalised to your needs. 

Anxiety about flying can occur even before the airport


Understanding your fear of flying.

Actually, your fear of flying is not yours. Fears and phobias are created quickly without your conscious control, see it more like an automatic behaviour which you have been doing up until now. You’ll soon begin to understand that you can change this behaviour using the tools and techniques we teach you.

Fears and phobias are natural, they are formed as a protection response to keep you safe, only our brains matching system is not always perfect and occasionally mismatches situations and associates a fear or anxiety response to events, objects, activities or situations that are typically seen as safe. This creates an irrational fear which can impact you and hold you back from doing the things you could enjoy.  

Some people manage to overcome a fear of flying with logic such as understanding how a plane flies and how travelling by plane is one of the safest modes of travel. Some airlines also run courses to help you. These are all options you could consider when overcoming your fear. 

However, as explained earlier, a fear of flying is irrational and sometimes pure logical arguments is simply not enough to reshape automatic behaviour. This is where hypnosis comes in. 

Hypnosis is a natural and easy method for you to overcome your fear of flying for good without the need to go through special rituals or take medication to relax you. Instead you’ll actually be able to enjoy your flight. 

The fear response is automatic in nature, and happens on its own unconsciously. Hypnosis allows us to tap into these unconscious habits and allow them to do something more useful for you.
