Hypnotherapy for Fear of Flying is the second most common phobia we deal with (behind fear of public speaking/ presenting) at Assured effects Hypnotherapy in Poole and Wimborne.  It is not the most common phobia in the UK (dogs, spiders, and social phobias score higher!) but it is often one that people need to confront if they have a need to go abroad for business or pleasure.

Fear of flying has some wonderful scientific names: aerophobia, aviatophobia, aviophobia, or pteromechanophobia! It is estimated that 20-40% of the UK population experience mild to high levels of anxiety whilst flying.


Fear of flying - Assured Effects Hypnotherapy

Fear of flying - hypnosis in PooleSymptoms can include:

•Fear of open spaces – Agoraphobia

•Fear of enclosed spaces – Claustrophobia

•Fear of being sick - Emetophobia, and actual vomiting

•Fear of heights – Acrophobia

•Anxiety, panic attacks etc

•Insomnia on the lead up to the flight (and during long flights)

The definition of a phobia is that the fear is irrational and inappropriate. Fear of flying is a highly exaggerated reaction to a perceived threat or danger. When our body feels under threat (perceived or real) adrenaline is produced and we enter in fight or flight mode (no pun intended!). However, suffering a phobic reaction despite being upsetting, is also embarrassing. It is often this embarrassment factor that becomes the most powerful thing – the fear of the fearful reaction and losing control.

What is often misunderstood is that the therapist does not need to know why the fear developed to effectively treat the condition.  Whilst it is useful to understand what the initial sensitising event was, effectively therapy can be undertaken without this knowledge.  To change someone’s behaviour is to change someone’s belief and habits - and this can be all about how we forecast future events. The past does not equal the future!
