Overcome flying phobia with hypnotherapy

Podcast 29: How to overcome flying phobia with hypnotherapy

Today I’ll be briefly talking about

  • Pteromerhanophobia – flying phobia
  • Why and how some people experience this type of phobia
  • And my 5 top tips to help you overcome this type of phobia which includes how you can use hypnotherapy to make your next flight more enjoyable.

There will also, as usual be a free audio at the end of this podcast that you can enjoy, keep and come back to time and time again.

This week’s podcast is part of a mini series which started with episode 26 where I talked about anxiety, in episode 27 Overcome phobias with hypnotherapy I looked at general overview of phobias.

If you have a fear of flying, or flying phobia, you’ll probably already know a lot of the information in this podcast so we’ll take a general overlook of the fear.

You are not alone

It’s a very common fear, one I’m contacted about quite often, especially this time of year and towards summer when people are thinking about going on holiday.

As with all fears and phobias it might be one of many different parts that might be triggering the response you have so figuring out what your triggers are will help you feel more in control of the response. Is it the

  • sound
  • the feeling of the plane moving
  • is it the height
  • the takeoff or landing
  • banking
  • being enclosed for a long period
  • feeling like things are out of your control
  • was there a triggering event or trauma?

You can let the fear rule you, how often do you even need to fly? That’s fine if you never want to leave the country, or you’re happy to take the train or a boat everywhere, but what opportunities will you miss by not being able to fly? Will it affect your career? Your social life? If it doesn’t impact on you now, will it later?

How will your life improve once you’ve rid yourself of the fear?  Imagine yourself flying with ease, enjoying the experience. Would you

  • Travel more
  • Visit friends or family
  • Improve your career potential

I’m sure you can think of other ways your life will be improved once you are able to enjoy flying.
