Fear of Flying - Clinical Hypnotherapy

Pteromerhanophobia or Aerophobia, aviatophobia, aviophobia

The fear of flying is probably one of the most common of phobias. It is estimated that about 30% of the population experience anxiety whilst flying. Even though this anxiety can seem irrational to us, our subconscious mind may create anxiety as it thinks it is protecting us. Protecting us is the primary function of our subconscious mind, and as flying is essentially an unnatural thing for people to do, this reaction is not surprising.  However, in reality, flying has been proven to be one of the safest ways to travel.  In fact, statistically, it is far safer than driving a car or even crossing the road.

A fear of flying can interfere with business travel and holidays, and in extreme cases individuals will avoid a career move or family holidays abroad.

Hypnotherapy to overcome fear of flying


I wanted to write and thank you for your help with overcoming my panic attacks when flying. After only one session with you I felt relaxed and more positive.
When I took my flight in July, it was a much more pleasant experience, and I would say it was an 80% improvement on the usual trauma I go through.
I will definitely being having a top-up session with you before my next flight - to trying and improve on this - and hopefully this will allow me to take longer haul flights and enjoy some really memorable holidays with my family.
A big thank you.
Tina, Berkshire
