Here, we explain how to overcome the fear of flying. 


Psychology of Fear of flying

This is a learned fear meaning it develops with exposure to the event in this case flying. After having a bad experience with flying, maybe high turbulence or emergency landing, the mind begins to have anxious thoughts that lead to fear even when thinking about flying. You become susceptible to an unending chain of negative thoughts associated with flying making flying impossible.  

Some people might pick up this fear from their parents in childhood. And for others, it can be the confined space on the plane that makes them feel trapped or uncomfortable. Most often, the individual having endured a bad flying experience no longer is able to gather the courage to go flying. The longer a person avoids flying, the more this fear may increase. Sometimes the fear is also associated with other phobias. It is because the mind anticipates a repeat occurrence or the chain of anxious thoughts are too overwhelming to carry out flying. Mostly such individuals end up developing a dread towards flying which can unknowingly affect other aspects of their life. 

Incidentally, hypnotherapy for fear of flying is found effective for helping people in such a situation. A therapist can readily break the self-imposed mental shackles in an individual through the hypnotic process. 


How Does Hypnosis Work for Overcoming the Fear of Flying?

Mitigating the Root Cause

Our hypnotherapists introduce mindfulness to the individual as a process of recovery, encouraging them to become acutely aware of their fears. With Unwind Technique, it’s powerful to remove the fear and phobia of flying related to the past. Its success lies in treating deep-rooted causes that induced anxiety in the person in the first place. 

Reframing Perception

You will be guided to enact the fearful scenarios from past experience which are associated with flying or in a plane in trance state. By changing the mental images, we can change the perception of how you perceive flying. It makes the individual stop behaving like a victim who starts taking control over life. This along with positive thought reinforcement helps you to nurture empowering thoughts, allowing you to take up flying with confidence. This kind of therapy makes the individual more in-tune with the realities of life without being overtaken by fear. 

Hypnosis and NLP techniques stand out for altering neural pathways in the brain enabling the individual to break free from the tight grip of the fearful thought patterns associated with flying.
