Fear of flying can develop for a number of reasons, such as:
- A fear of heights, claustrophobia, or social anxiety
- Fear of not being able to go to the toilet at will, of being sick, of others being sick, of not being in control or losing control and panicking
- Fear of turbulence, engine failure, lightening, attack…
Hypnotherapy can provide help to overcome a fear of flying. By working directly with the subconscious mind, usually over 3-6 sessions, you can begin to change your response to flying, from fear to calm. Any past trauma which may have contributed to the fear can also be resolved helping the individual to begin to feel like a confident flyer.
